Carrie Underwood Surprises Ellen Degeneres – VIDEO

OK, Carrie Underwood didn’t really surprise Ellen Degeneres on her talk show today, but she definitely surprised the audience. Carrie strutted onstage today in a sharp black ensemble, to hand-deliver Idol Gives Back tickets for Ellen to give away to a lucky audience member.

  1. LOL @ Ellen’s gift to Carrie.

    I’m excited to see Idol Gives Back tonight. Hoping for some great performances to download! It’s pretty cool to tie in the song Change to donations from ticket sales to support Save The Children. Makes me feel even better about the awesome tickets I bought this morning! Even though it’ll be tough with the economy and ratings being down I hope they raise lots of money tonight.

    Thanks for capping so quickly MJ! I thought I’d have to wait to get home but you were on it!

  2. Yaaaay! Thanks so much for the early caps, MJ! I was grinning like crazy when Carrie came out. Yay!

    have set a wedding date, but they aren’t telling yet.

    More like never. Carrie even jokingly told off paparazzi with a warning that she and her family “pack heat.” The thing is good investigatory skills can yield a lot of info. Carrie’s schedule is so busy that you can narrow the dates down and you can get other info from bits and pieces elsewhere. I wanna see wedding pics, but I really hope the paps don’t care about/ bother them on the wedding day. I guess that’s too much to ask for since every little, itty-bitty thing she says about the wedding becomes headline news as early as now.

    Poor girl, she looks extremely tired

    No wonder she loves to sleep on her rare days off!

  3. I hope the paparazzi and/or media have no way of knowing the wedding date and leave her and Mike alone. They’re such private people I’d hate to see that wedding bugged by them. When pics come out they should be on their terms.

  4. Why does Carrie keep getting more and more adorable? Doesn’t she know I want to continue the hatefest I had for her back in the day when she beat out my beloved Bo for the title? :)

    Well she taped this yesterday after flying in from Vegas where she had the ACMs and the Brooks & Dunn taping Sunday and Monday. I don’t think this was a planned appearance. Annie Lennox had to back out of her Ellen appearance because of the volcanic ash situation so Carrie subbed in with an interview. Her band isn’t even with her in LA I don’t think so she couldn’t perform.

    I hope the paparazzi and/or media have no way of knowing the wedding date and leave her and Mike alone.

    That’d be nice. But I doubt that’ll happen. E!’s been sniffing around because one of their reporters tweeted about confirming the wedding will be in Nashville so I’d guess the media and paparazzi probably already know or at least have an idea.

    It’s even got me rolling my eyes! Us’s website has a headline that goes “Carrie Underwood Has Set A Wedding Date!” but without clicking I know that’s got to be a rehash of the Ellen interview. If people aren’t already fans I’d say all these articles about not stressing about the details and Ace being part of the wedding and serving cupcakes instead of cake could get pretty annoying.

    And People supposedly paid $50,000 to get that exclusive (!) first ever (!) picture of them together at that charity event in Canada. I’m willing to bet a lot of money that they’re willing to pay a LOT more money for wedding day stuff.

    There was an article on Entertainment Weekly a few weeks ago commenting on the same thing. The writer said she knew way too much about Carrie’s wedding and she didn’t even follow Carrie closely. She was wondering why people were so obsessed with every little detail of celebrity weddings.

    Carrie’s handling the scrutiny pretty well, I think. Even from that radio DJ who kept on pushing and pushing for details about the proposal even when she clearly stated that she didn’t want to go into detail. I wanted to smack him! Her strategy seems to be to give “crumbs” and let that be enough to make the inquisition stop. I think she should be more devious. Like sneakily leak a false wedding date that’s later than the real date. Well, at least she’s done with her radio satellite interviews. The next round should be for when “Undo It” is near the top– late August to early September? She’ll be married by then.

    You know why that’s funny? Guess who just tweeted linking to their blog about Carrie’s surprise visit to Ellen with the headline ‘Carrie Underwood makes a surprise visit to Ellen and talks wedding planning’?
