Fuller House, the long-awaited reboot of Full House, premieres this week on Netflix. Singer Carly Rae Jepsen--fresh on the heels of her Grease: Live appearance--has a big role to play in Fuller House, too. No, Jepsen isn't acting as a friend or foe of the Tanner girls. Instead she is singing the theme song.

The same theme song that opened each episode of Full House, "Everywhere You Look," will be opening each episode of Fuller House, too. The big difference will be that in place of Jesse Frederick belting out the tune, Carly Rae Jepsen has that covered instead.
Rolling Stone reports that Carly Rae Jepsen recorded her version of "Everywhere You Look" in 2015, setting aside time from promoting her album "Emotion" in order to do so.
Jepsen said in her Rolling Stone interview that she has wonderful memories of watching Full House, making it all that more special to be singing the Fuller House theme song.
"Full House is essentially my childhood. It was my favorite TV show growing up," she said. "I can remember being on a camping trip with my parents and asking them what time it was, how much further 'til we get there kind of thing, and they said, "Three more Full Houses!" I understand what that means: two-and-a-half hours. So I was offered this and wondering if it could fit into my schedule; I had a lot going on at the time. I remember my team thinking, "I don't think you're going to have time to do this." It was casually mentioned in one of those phone calls, and I said, "What? We have to make time for this! I'll come in the middle of the night, whatever it is." When I found out that Butch Walker was part of it too, that sealed the deal for me, because obviously I admire what he's done and heard such great things that I was dying to get in the room and combine two things I was very curious about."

Has Carly Rae Jepsen been allowed any special privileges regarding the Fuller House reboot--as in has she seen any of the upcoming episodes?
"No, not yet," she said. "I've seen a poster for it, but I haven't seen any trailers or things like that. Either way, I feel like there's an amazing concept already, and I'm looking forward to watching the storylines. I told my girlfriends we're going to have to have a popcorn night and really enjoy it from start to finish."

Will you be doing as Carly Rae Jepsen plans when Fuller House premieres on Netflix this Friday, February 26th?
You can bet lots of people--okay, so it will probably be mostly girls--will pop that popcorn and curl up on the couch in anticipation of the Tanner girls--Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen aren't reprising their role as Michelle Tanner), along with Andrea Barber--in Fuller House form. Of course these people won't get to listen to themselves sing the Fuller House theme song, the way Carly Rae Jepsen can.
