Most don’t think Un­der­wood’s face looks any dif­fer­ent

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - GO! - — Martha Ross, East Bay Times

Car­rie Un­der­wood made her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance at the 2018 ACM Awards on Sun­day night af­ter warn­ing fans for months that she might look dif­fer­ent af­ter tak­ing a hor­rific fall in her Nashville, Tenn., home and get­ting 40 to 50 stitches in her face.

The 35-year-old coun­try star, above, won a stand­ing ova­tion and raves on Twit­ter for her emo­tional per­for­mance of her new sin­gle “Cry Pretty.”

But most who watched Un­der­wood’s much-hyped ap­pear­ance, which in­cluded the un­veil­ing of her postac­ci­dent face, think she looks the same. They couldn’t de­tect any signs that she had been scarred or oth­er­wise dis­fig­ured in the ac­ci­dent.

For months since what Un­der­wood called her Nov. 10 “freak, ran­dom ac­ci­dent,” the singer wouldn’t bare her full face to cam­eras. She also kept self­ies and pho­tos of her­self to a min­i­mum.

Ahead of her per­for­mance, she shared a close-up of her face from Satur­day night. It was the first shot of her full face that she had posted in a long time.

But from how Un­der­wood looked at the ACM Awards on Sun­day, it ap­pears that any dif­fer­ences are in fact min­i­mal, if they ex­ist at all.

Peo­ple on so­cial me­dia won­dered what all big fuss was about, with some pro­claim­ing she looks “as pretty as ever.”
