In terms of the GRAMMYs , Sunday night belonged to Carrie Underwood.
After winning the “Best Country Song” and “Best Solo Country Performance” GRAMMYs for “Blown Away”, Underwood took the stage and performed “Blown Away” and “Two Black Cadillacs”. However, it wasn’t her powerhouse vocals that left the audience impressed, it was her dress that lit up to reveal butterflies and fancy designs that stunned fans.
Carrie explained to The Boot where the inspiration for the magical dress came from:”On my last tour, we did an LED dress and that’s where the idea sparked. We just wanted it to be artful and dramatic. There’s so many big performances at the Grammys and I just like to stand still and sing sometimes! This seemed to be the best way to do that but be visually attention-capturing.”
As if light up dresses weren’t enough, Underwood also dazzled when she won her Grammy. According to People.com’s Style Watch, the necklace she wore was worth an astonishing $31 million dollars.
Carrie told E! News about the jaw-dropping jewelry, “It’s heavy on my soul. “I’m afraid someone is going to tackle me and steal it … It’s worth more than me.”
The necklace was created by Hollywood jeweler Johnathon Arndt and featured 381 carats of oval, pear, marquise and round brilliant white diamonds.
Yowza. Maybe Mike can buy the borrowed jewelry for their upcoming 3rd wedding anniversary.
