Former American Idol champion Carrie Underwood, made her triumphant return to the show program night, looking like some weight had been taken off her shoulders ... and arms ... and face ... if you know what we're saying.

We're saying she might be anorexic. Now, before we go any further, let us point out that in a way, she's battled an eating disorder all her life. It's called "vegetarianism." So it's no surprise she's shedding pounds faster than she dispatched of Bo Bice and every other Season 4 foe.

We're not about to claim that the adorable Carrie has officially joined the Nicole Richie School of Dieting, but something's amiss here. Anyway, here's a quick photo comparison of the country star, both last night and two years ago when she was named the next American Idol.

Here's hoping this year's favorite, Melinda Doolittle, doesn't follow the same destructive path. We doubt she will. That girl looks like she can eat! And that's cool. It really is.
