Carrie Underwood/American Idol Throwback!
14 years and one day ago, a young 23 year old Carrie Underwood won the 2005 season of American Idol.
To celebrate the anniversary , the mother of two returned to the program, delivering a show-stopping performance of her latest hit song “Southbound” on the show’s season finale on Sunday.
Carrie reminisced to Idol host Ryan Seacrest that she felt “horrified, scared, nervous, excited, all of the above” when she won the competition that would catapult her fame into the country music world.
Underwood is far from the only success story after Idol. In fact, she’s become friends with fellow winner and original champion Kelly Clarkson, who won the inaugural season in 2002.
From American Idol in 2005 to the Bell MTS Place here in Winnipeg this Sunday night, Carrie Underwood continues to rock us out with her impressive wind pipes.
