    This is another one of those May to May things so only half her tour’s in there. Forbes doesn’t count lots of stuff. Carrie’s always said they’re off. Blahblahblah, Forbes wants hits.

    I liked that performance of Undo It. The staging was easier than the DWTS one. I think it helped that they used backup vocals so Carrie didn’t have to sing all the nananas. But I did like some of the phrasing things Carrie did on DWTS.

    Great performance. I love the outfit especially the boots. :) Thanks mj.

    10 hour bus ride is ridiculous! lol But still in another country, you’ll never have another experience like that. haha

    I understand why they picked UI as the lead single over there, but I still wish Carrie could knock em out with one of her amazing ballads.

    #CarrieUnderwood arrived via bus into Sydney at 2.30am, and went outside after her performance to meet fans. True star

    The Australian national women’s soccer team was also in the house and their goalkeeper tweeted

    Carrie Underwood was awesome and the sunrise crew too.

    I don’t care what anyone says about Carrie, or how much she gets called boring or farmbot or whatever. I’ve nothing but massive amounts of respect for her. She works hard, always comes across as being kind, I’ve never heard her publicly say a bad word about anyone, she’s never tried to distance herself from Idol and seems nothing but grateful for what it gave her, and she seems to be really good to her fans. She deserves every bit of success she’s had, so good on her.

    I’m always surprised at how well she performs this song live. There is zero room to breathe in this song, yet she always manages to kill it.
