Carrie Underwood Slays at CMT Awards

by at .

It's really cute that any other artist bothers to show up for the CMT Awards every year, despite Carrie Underwood's total and complete domination at the event.

On Wednesday night, the beloved former American Idol winner took home trophies for Performance of the Year and Female Video of the Year.

These victories brought her career total at the ceremony to 16, more than any other singer.

But Underwood didn't merely take to the stage to thank people for her big wins.

She also went up there on one occasion to sing the track "Church Bells."

The performance started slow, with the blonde-haired superstar decked out in a sheer black lace jumpsuit and cape while singing to the music of a solo banjo player on a mostly empty stage.

However, Underwood then brought attendees to their feet, flipping off the aforementioned cape as the stage revealed a full band and gospel choir.

Her commanding vocals and unique style led to a standing ovation.

"I want to thank you guys for coming out and supporting country music on tour," the beauty said, while accepting her Performance of the Year award.

"We've spent the first part of the year on the road and it's just been so wonderful to see so many people come out. I know I speak for everybody out there – all of us artists who say you guys are the reason that we get to do what we get to do.

"Thank you so much for coming out and supporting us in concert. God bless you guys."

Carrie Underwood Quotes

I feel more beautiful when I see the pictures after. I'm like, 'I wish I had felt like I looked like that when I was actually there.'

I’m content with 90 percent of me. I like my teeth. Sometimes I wonder if my orthodontist realizes how important he was.
