Carrie Underwood Blows Away Audience at Billboard Music Awards

by at . Comments

Blond beauty Carrie Underwood performed the title track to her chart-topping new album, Blown Away, live at last night's Billboard Music Awards.

Showing off her unmistakably powerful pipes (and other attributes), Carrie commanded the stage with what she calls one of the darkest songs she's ever written.

Dark or not, it was a terrific effort, don't you agree?

At the event, Carrie talked to reporters about Robin Gibb, who died earlier in the day, and how she used to listen to the late Bee Gees singer as a kid.

"My parents both listened to the Bee Gees quite a bit when I was little, so I was definitely exposed to them at an early age," she said.

"They just had a sound that was all their own, obviously, [it was] never duplicated," she added. "They were very influential on music in general."

"It's very sad to hear about any loss. There have been a lot of legends lost this year, so it's always sad to see it happen, but they are paying a couple of tributes here, and I know that they'll be classy and respectful and allow us all to remember them."

The most notable: John Legend and Jordin Sparks' tribute to Whitney.
