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