Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 "American Idol" win to become a true multi-format, multimedia superstar, spanning achievements in music, television and film.
Country superstar Carrie Underwood is returning to her "American Idol" roots to serve as a guest mentor on the revamped TV talent show.
Despite the trauma of her fall and subsequent surgery, Underwood looks flawless in the new video, donning sequin dresses, and sparkling stilettos - even her tears glitter! In "Cry Pretty", however, Underwood is up front and center. It's her first since her accidental fall that left her with a broken wrist and almost 50 stitches in her face.
Underwood debuted the song on April 11 before singing it live for the first time during an emotional performance at an awards ceremony on April 15. "I'm hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don't know how it's all going to end up". Clips of her stage show are mixed with scenes from backstage and her hotel room where she's seen crying to the point of ruining her makeup. They couldn't detect any signs that she had been scarred or otherwise disfigured in the accident. Perhaps she has really good make-up people, or perhaps the reason that Underwood has continued to make an issue of her face is that she's more sensitive to any changes in her appearance, given that she's a celebrity.
In the video, she goes for high production value.
In addition to mentoring Gabby Barrett, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Cade Foehner, Maddie Poppe and Michael J. Woodard, Underwood will prove exactly why she was named the season four victor when she returns to the stage to perform her latest single, "Cry Pretty".
