Carrie Underwood & Keith Urban Sing Duet On ‘Idol’ Finale!

Last night the world said goodbye to ‘Idol’ in a big way, a two hour special with performances from basically every person that has ever been on the show. Carrie went up there and slayed it though. I think we can all agree that Carrie is the biggest contestant to come from ‘American Idol‘, listen I love me some Kelly Clarkson too but Carrie is just something else. She is not only a singer but an entertainer.

So last night she went up there and sang her ass off, reminded us why she is the Queen of ‘Idol’ and stole the show. Alright maybe there were a lot of great performances but Carrie is just incredible, she is absolutely something else, that is all I can say. Out of all the talent shows in the past decade I would say that Carrie is the biggest one to come from any of them.

Carrie also performed ‘Something In The Water’ later in the show!

She has come a long way since she first started on the show but it is nice to see she never forgot where she came from.

The Top 25 Best ‘American Idol’ Contestants Of All Time

As most people are aware by now, ‘American Idol’ is finally saying goodbye for good. Yes, it is still on television an no I don’t know any winners since Phillip Phillips. On that note, it is probably for the best considering this show has ran much longer than it should have, but you have to respect where it is due. ‘American Idol’ changed the way that Americans do television. Before AI, there was no online voting, no calling in to vote, it was the first show to make the viewer feel as though they were a part of a show.

On that note, ‘American Idol’ has produced some serious talent, more talent than any other singing show. I mean ‘The Voice’ has a few big names from it, the short lived ‘X-Factor USA’ basically only had Fifth Harmony come from it. Without ‘American Idol’ though, none of that would have happened. There would be no singing shows to speak of. I guess you can’t really assume that, but ‘American Idol’ was the first to do it.

Here are a list of who I think were the top 25 of all time. You my think my list is jacked up which is absolutely fine but it is my list! Remember I haven’t watched it for a few seasons so I have no idea if there is anyone from the past probably three seasons that I have missed. I mean to be fair, I don’t think that most of America even knew that the show was still on.

25. Kimberly Locke
To be honest, I didn’t appreciate her much when I was younger. I mean I was 11 and only cared about pop music so someone belting out Whitney Houston, at that point in my life didn’t matter. Looking back on it though Kimberly’s voice was insane and her ‘Seven days’ or whatever her single was, that was fire.

24. Kellie Pickler
Surprisingly she didn’t do too bad for herself after the show. On the show she wasn’t my favorite but her stage presence was something that you just couldn’t ignore.

23. Scotty McCreery
Scotty is a hottie but also a snooze fest. Yes, his voice is incredible but at the time on the show he was so boring. I remember just wanting his songs to be over because he would barely move around on stage. I think once he ran around like a mad man, other than that not so much.

22. Kimberly Caldwell
I think Kimberly could qualify as my first girl crush. I was obsessed with her and pretty upset when she left. Luckily for a while she was on random red carpets just doing the damn thing, like interviewing celebrities.

21. Alex Preston
Alex was in the later seasons but I genuinely believe that if he was back on like season 4 or 5, when the show still had a lot of steam he would have been more popular and potentially  could have won.

20. Jason Castro
Oh Jason, the surfer dude with the voice of an angel. His version of ‘Hallelujah’ still gives me chills.

19. Haley Reinhart
The judges always gave Haley shit but she can sing, her voice is incredible. It has definitely gotten stronger since Idol, her voice is insane though, in the best possible way.

18. Ruben Studdard
The velvet teddy bear. I was more of a Clay girl myself but Ruben was entertaining that was for sure. Maybe he will make a comeback one day, maybe.

17. Kris Allen
Kris Allen is a great singer, he is handsome, and he is humble. Somehow he beat Adam Lambert but in the end it is all about showmanship and Adam kind of seemed like the winner out of the two of them. Wen you get a change listen to ‘The Truth’ by Kris though, pretty incredible song.

16. Angie Miller
I genuinely thought that Angie had a shot at winning but American didn’t agree with me. ‘You Set Me Free’ is an absolutely beautiful and haunting song, everyone go download it!

15. Colton Dixon
Colton was someone who I thought was going to stick around, again, I was wrong. I mean I guess I can’t get them all right but he got voted out much earlier than I expected. He is now a married man and has a fairly successful Christian music career.

14. Jordin Sparks
I liked Jordin a lot more after ‘Idol’ than when she was on it. Jordin you gave me songs like ‘Battlefield’ and ‘Tattoo’ thank you for those classics.

13. Phillip Phillips
I would say that Phillip is probably the last successful winner of ‘American Idol’. You couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing ‘Home’ since then we haven’t heard much. I am assuming that he will be back soon enough though.

12. Fantasia
Much like Kimberly Locke when I was younger I couldn’t appreciate the belting out of music, I didn’t understand it. I just thought she was screaming. Going back to it though Fantasia had crazy ass talent. I also believe she is the only ‘American Idol’ alum with a Lifetime movie that they also starred in.

11. Nikki McKibben
Way back in season 1 I wanted Nikki to win it all. I liked Kelly Clarkson enough but I thought that Nikki was going to take it home. It always bummed me out that she never made it big but she was on a VH1 reality show, which is close enough, right?

10. Elliot Yamin
Elliot reminded me of AJ McLean I have no idea why. Loved his voice though, I also thought that it was pretty awesome he could sing so well and he was deaf in one ear, he didn’t let anything stop him. He also had a hit single that I remember loving but can’t remember the name of it.

9. Chris Daughtry
Listen I know that Chris should be higher on the list, sit down and shut our mouth! There were other singers that I liked better than him. I understand his talent was on a different level and he is one of the most successful after the show but I don’t care. I can say though, Chris is a very talented musician, what more do you want?

8. Clay Aiken
This legend. Clay Aiken should have won, that’s all I will say!

7. Katie Stevens
I may be one of the only people to say this but Katie was one of my all time favorites. She was only like 15 or 16 at the time and homegirl could sing, well more than just sing, she SANG. Now she is on a sow on MTV, hopefully she will go back to singing eventually though, that would be awesome!

6. Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer got sent home too early, but I think that’s okay because she won an Oscar, that kind of makes up for everything. She also made a ton of money off of Weight Watchers. Jennifer as made a big comeback since the tragedy that hit her family a few years back, I am glad that she is so happy now.

5.Kathrine McPhee
It’s a shame that Taylor Hicks beat her on ‘American Idol’. Katherine is now on the hit show ‘Scorpion’ though so I think she is going to be okay.

4. Josh Gracin
Boy oh boy did I love Josh Gracin. He was by far my favorite male on the show ever. Now he may not have had the best voice but his looks, my Lord I loved him. After ‘Idol’ he had a fairly successful country career before he fell off a bit. Recently it was said he threatened to kill himself, so we can only hope that whatever he is going through he goes through it safely!

3. Adam Lambert
Adam just toured the world with Queen, need I say more? He was like the Lady Gaga of ‘American Idol’ if that makes any sense. He was the first to have elaborate outfits and stages, Adam changed the game.

2. Kelly Clarkson
Kelly is a Grammy winning artist who puts out hit after hit, you can’t go wrong there. She is the first winner ever, another thing that you can’t deny. Kelly Clarkson will always be the first ‘American Idol’, the most important one, and the star of ‘From Justin to Kelly’

1.Carrie Underwood
Honestly picking between Kelly and Carrie was like Sophie’s choice. Carrie is my girl though. She always has been. She has always come back to her roots on Idol too, something that you just have to respect in a person. I am also pretty sure she is an angel.

So there you have it. Thank you ‘American Idol’ for changing music and television. You will be missed,

Carrie Underwood Stuns At The 2016 ACM Awards

I don’t think that Carrie Underwood could ever pull off a bad look. I am pretty sure that she could wear a trash bag to an award show and the next thing that you know, everyone would be wearing a trash bag on the red carpet.

Carrie has the voice of an angel and an incredible fashion sense, something that I will never have!

Sam Hunt & Carrie Underwood Perform “Take Your Time” & “Heartbeat” At The GRAMMYs

All that I can say about the Sam Hunt and Carrie Underwood performance is holy chemistry! I mean damn these two had so much chemistry it was absolutely insane. I believed that these two could have been potentially in love. I believed the two of them!

They performed a mash up of both of their hits, ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Take Your Time’. Two songs that are absolutely incredible. I really wish that they would release actual recorded versions of their duets, I would download them in a heartbeat.

Sam Hunt & Carrie Underwood Are Performing On The Grammys Together!

Today both Sam Hunt and Carrie Underwood revealed on their social media accounts that they will be performing together at the Grammys. Yes, that is all that I can say about that. These two country megastars will absolutely bring the house down with their performance.

I am going to assume they will be singing ‘Heartbeat‘ which is absolutely my favorite song off of Carrie’s latest album. Sam sings backup vocals in the chorus but I am hoping that he has more of a part in their duet. Maybe it is a bit of a remix? That would be awesome.

I’d like to just add that Carrie looks incredible, she always looks so flawless it isn’t even fair.

Carrie Underwood & James Corden Sing For His Carpool Karaoke Segment

James Corden is by far my favorite late night host, well it is probably a tie between James and Jimmy Kimmel. If you follow my blog at all you know I can’t stand Jimmy Fallon and the others are all just kind of in the mix.

Anyway, the best segment that James does is absolutely Carpool Karaoke. He has had Bieber, Jason Derulo, Mariah Carey and even the legendary Stevie Wonder, to name a few. It is just perfection. Nothing like seeing a late night show host actually let the performers do their thing rather than interrupting them constantly. If you add Carrie Underwood to anything, I will probably like it too, that is a fun fact. I swear she is an angel put down on this earth to grace us with her incredible music and perfect personality.

Check out the video below, it’s perfect.

 

 

Carrie Underwood Rocks A Cape On The AMA’s Red Carpet!

Oh shit, wearing a cape? I feel like that is a serious statement to make but Carrie is rocking it. I swear that Carrie could wear a damn paper bag and I am sure of that.

I think that this is seriously a red carpet moment for Carrie though. She looks so pretty, those legs look incredible, and she looks like she is dripping with diamonds. I am a real fan Carrie!

Check Out Carrie Underwood’s New Song ‘Heartbeat’ Featuring Sam Hunt!

Yes! That is all I can say about this song! I love every single second of it. Honestly I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Carrie’s new album because I wasn’t a huge fan of “Smoke break” but this is a song that I can get behind.

Let’s be real, is there a better female singer in country than Carrie? I mean Carrie’s voice is just so damn perfect, it is angelic. Miranda is a great singer but at the end of the day I genuinely believe that Carrie could out sing her. Maybe Carrie and Faith can have a sing off and I can decide which one is better.

I do wish that Sam had a verse but having him in the chorus was a nice little touch.

What a great day for music! First Jojo releases new music now Carrie Underwood has announced her new music on Facebook! She did a little Q&A and revealed that her new song will be called ‘Smoke Break’ while the album will be called “Story Teller”.

I cannot wait to hear what she has in store for the new album. Carrie has one of the best voices out there by far. I don’t just mean for singing country either. I genuinely believe that Carrie could out sing almost any singer out there. She has one of the most powerful voices in the business, so you know that this is going to be good.

I will write more about it when I know more, I know the date for the album is October 24th but that is about it! Can’t wait to actually buy the album and I am sure listen to it on repeat!
