Just a little more than a month away from the return of REFLECTION! Carrie covers the June issue of @VegasMagazine… https://t.co/hykVbhm1gk
The 31 year-old singer will executive produce the six-hour limited event series based her hit track, which revolves around a sinister love triangle.
Carrie Underwood's hit track 'Two Black Cadillacs' tells a very ominous story of two women seeking revenge of the same man after finding out they are both romantically involved with him, so it isn't a surprise that such a compelling plot is being adapted into a television show.
Underwood's 2012 song 'Two Black Cadilacs' will be turned into a Fox TV show
Underwood's tale of vengeance, murder and treachery has been picked up by Fox to be turned into a six-hour limited event series, according to Deadline.com. The 'American idol' alum is also going to team with Jerry Bruckheimer and executive produce the production, which is already in development.

With her third studio album out in September, we look at Jennifer Hudson's meteoric rise to the mainstream.
American recording artist and actress Jennifer Hudson will release her third studio album on 22 September, entitled JHUD. With an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Grammy to her name, it’s easy to imagine that Jennifer Hudson has been an unstoppable singing and acting icon for all of her career. But everyone has to start somewhere and it was as an idol, on the singing competition show, American Idol, that Hudson burst into the public’s consciousness.
Jennifer Hudson took a chance on American Idol and got through to the live shows
Of course, appearing on a contest such as American Idol and British versions including The X Factor doesn’t automatically provide you with a steadfast career in the music and entertainment industry, even if you are good.

The best album of the year? The reviewers think so.
Miranda Lambert naming her new album Platinum might turn out to be a self fulfilling prophesy. Not only is the record, which came out on Tuesday, already on top of the iTunes sales chart, the critics are in love as well. Lambert’s strength has always been in her clever lyrics, her fiery sound and, well, her sass. Fans will be happy to hear that, despite her being a married woman now, the sass is still strong with this one.
The new record shows a maturity that really suits Lambert, say reviewers.
Says Jamieson Cox of TIME Magazine: “Platinum doesn’t reinvent the wheel in any sense, but it doubles down on the qualities that have helped Lambert become one of country’s most reliable stars: broad, plain-spoken feminism, rousing choruses that split the difference between archetypal country and contemporary pop-rock, and frank, funny, fully realized depictions of the protagonist at the heart of these songs.

The network is going back to its roots for the festive period once again
NBC will hope to emulate the success they had over the 2013 seasonal period when they aired a live performance of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood and Stephen Meyer. The show was a huge success for the network, earning strong viewer figures and a considerable amount of positive press, paving the way for another similar spectacle for the coming Christmas period: Peter Pan.
NBC took little time to announce its intentions to air another live, theatrical performance this coming Christmas-time, following the convincing success of The Sound of Music last month. At its peak, that performance scored more than 18 million viewers and held on to a strong amount of viewers for much of the telecast. Looking to capture similar audience figures again, the network have opted for a familiar story which translates from the stage to screen well and has a long history of multiple reconstructions. Peter Pan then seems like the ideal choice to keep this festive formula running.
A number of shows might not make it to Christmas on NBC

NBC have announced that, after the success of their live production of 'The Sound of Music Live!', the network's next stage adaptation will be the beloved story of 'Peter Pan'.
The success of last December's live television stage production of 'The Sound of Music' has encouraged NBC to give it another crack. The next show will be the universally loved story of 'Peter Pan', the boy who can fly and never ages, and lives out his endless childhood in the fictional 'Neverland'.
The cast of NBC's 'The Sound of Music'
NBC entertainment chairman, Bob Greenblatt, took his chance at the 2014 winter Television Critics Association press tour, this past Sunday (Jan 19th), to reveal the network's future plans, and announced the adaptation of Broadway's 'Peter Pan' will be aired on December 4th.

Her first English-language album in six years peaked at No. 2 at the chart before plummeting, but a song with NeYo and an appearance on the NBC singing contest will hopefully rejuvenate sales
Celine Dion came back with a bang with her powerful single 'Loved Me Back to Life' and album of the same name, but whilst the album and single drew considerable buzz when it was released in October, people seem to have forgotten about Dion without much hassle. In a bid to rejuvenate interest in her singing and her first English-language record for six year, the Canadian singer is planning a double whammy just before Christmas.
Celine Dion released her third single, 'Incredible,' earlier this week
Having already heard the lead single form the album, Dion will give people another chance to hear what her album has to offer when she performs her collaborative effort with Ne-Yo, called 'Incredible,' on the season finale of The Voice. The pair will perform the mid-tempo album track on the Tuesday (17 December) finale, which airs on NBC 9 p.m. (ET/PT). As well as releasing the track as her third single from the album, Dion won't be done with the festive giving just there, as she also has another TV performance lined up after her appearance on The Voice.

Despite its imperfections, NBC's The Sound of Music managed to draw in an unprecedented audie
The Sound of Music Live with Carrie Underwood – it happened, now we have to deal with the fallout. Many musical theater buffs were apprehensive about this NBC adaptation of the classic, but was it really as terrible as expected? Underwood was cast as Maria von Trapp in what is arguably the most beloved musical of all times because of her musical talent and her stage presence – both qualities, which helped her through the show last night.
According to some reviewers, this version just couldn't capture the magic of the original.
In fact, ratings show that viewers loved NBC’s live adaptation. According to CNN, 18.4 million people tuned into the show last night and it earned a 4.6 average rating in the adult demographic, making it the highest rating NBC production since the cancellation of ER back in 2009.

Carrie Underwood is "proud" of her 'The Sound Of Music Live!' performance and responds to the heavy criticism she received by branding them "mean people."
NBC's live action television production of the 'The Sound Of Music' aired this Thursday (Dec 5th) and like every remake, the comparisons and critics were at full flow.
Carrie Underwood starred as 'Maria', the character Julie Andrews made iconic in the 1965 film, and although she feels proud of the production, the twitter world were very vocal in their criticisms.
"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus," the 30-year-old wrote via Twitter on Friday (Dec 6th). "They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25."

Kym Karath, who played Gretl Von Trapp in the 1965 film, has left thoroughly unimpressed by the Carrie Underwood-led performance
The live performance of The Sound of Music, aired on NBC earlier this week, was met with a mixed reception from audiences at home and critics alike, however the harshest piece of criticism may have been reserved until now. According to TMZ, one person was left particularly distraught after seeing Carrie Underwood's interpretation of Maria, with Kym Karath branding the performance as being "painful to watch."
Underwood struggled to win everyone over wieth her performance
Karath portrayed Gretl Von Trapp in the original 1965 movie version of the Rogers & Hammerstein musical and when she and former co-star Charmian Carr (who played Liesl Von Trapp) met up to watch the NBC live show this week, neither were expecting to be disappointed so thoroughly by the latest version of the production. Taking to Twitter, Karath said she was left "mystified and disappointed" by the remake, being particularly let down by Underwood's sub-par performance.

Carrie Underwood did her best in NBC's 'The Sound of Music,' but the show wasn't a complete success.
When NBC decided to produce a live-action version of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood, they knew it would be a big risk. Live TV is always risky, and remaking a classic is even riskier.
Carrie Underwood Did Her Best in NBC's The Sound of Music
The show was pulled off Thursday night, without anyone falling or forgetting too many lines. But the reviews are mixed. It appears many people are applauding NBC for pulling off such a big task and Carrie Underwood for going along with it.

Critical and audience reception for the live broadcast has been mixed
The hills were alive last night, as NBC broadcast the live stage version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic stage show The Sound of Music. Favouring the original stage production over the 1965 movie version, the three hour showcase was one of the biggest talking points in America and managed to draw in a considerable audience number throughout its broadcast, but was it actually any good?
The show received a mixed reception from viewers and critics alike
The live broadcast was the second highest trending topic on micro-blogging site Twitter, falling just behind the death of former South Africa president and anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandella. On Twitter, audiences at home wrote of their approval or disapproval throughout the broadcast, with the overall view of the production being skewered down the middle as to whether it was any good. Some people loved it, and were particularly full of praise for Underwood, whilst others loathed the production, and were critical of the lead performance from the country star.

Carrie Underwood in 'The Sound of Music'? Not for everyone, but this might just work...
Carrie Underwood is doing The Sound of Music – those words probably send chills down a lot of people’s backs. After all, Underwood is a modern icon of country, The Sound of Music is a staple of musical theater and never the twain shall meet. Except they have and in fact, Underwood’s casting as Maria in the new adaptation for television makes a lot of sense.
Underwood does make a nice addition to the cast photo, at least.
Since winning American Idol in 2005, Underwood has gone on to win six Grammy awards and more than 100 other awards. Despite having only four acting credits to her name (mostly cameos) the country songstress has proven that she can pull off a great live show.

NBC has a big night ahead of them on Thursday (Dec Thurs 5th) as the live broadcast of the musical 'The Sound Of Music Live!' will take place. The forthcoming production will star Carrie Underwood as 'Maria,' a role that British actress Julie Andrews made famous in the 1965 feature film.

Taking on the legendary role hasn't gone quite as swimmingly as Underwood had planned...
It appears as though Carrie Underwood is getting quite a lot of hate tweets for taking on the role of Maria von Trapp in The Sound of Music remake. And while her live performance is only week away, she’s still getting pejorative messages via Twitter.
Carrie Underwood has received some Twitter-based grief surrounding her role in The Sound of Music
"I get hate tweets and stuff like, 'You're not Julie Andrews!'" Underwood, who is 30-years-old, told Entertainment Weekly. "I know I'm not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was… I know my place."

Carrie Underwood is under a lot of pressure as she is undertaking a huge task of playing 'Maria' in a live TV version of 'The Sound of Music' in December.
Julie Andrews made the role famous almost 50 years ago, back in the 1965 film, and this is where the legion of fans have their problem.

The star of the timeless 1965 musical has given Underwood her blessing to take on Maria
NBC have lined up a very special treat for musical lovers this Christmas, albeit one that initially aroused warning when its lead role was announced. Whilst some people have seen the appointment of Carrie Underwood to portray the kindly nun Maria in their live broadcast of The Sound of Music as a poor casting decision, one person who thinks she'll make a great Maria is the woman who launched the character into the instantly recognisable character she is today: Julie Andrews.
Andrews thinks Underwood is more than worthy as a successor
Andrews has given Underwood her blessing to take on the iconic role, with the star of the 1965 version of the play insisting that her country-singing successor has all the right qualities for Maria.

Blake Shelton was the big winner of the night, but veteran George Strait took home the top honour
The Country Music Association Awards lit up the Nashville nighttime on Wednesday, 6 November, as 'Country Music's Biggest Night' went off with a bang at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Aired live on ABC last night, the hosts for the evening were once again the ever-reliable Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, who oversaw some memorable moments over the course of the night.
Blake Shelton performs at the CMA Music Festival
Leading the nominations pack for the 47th annual awards was rising star Kacey Musgraves, who led with six nominations in total. Right behind, with five nominations, was Miranda Lambert, but it was her husband Blake Shelton who finished the night as the biggest winner, taking home two gongs during the ceremony. Officially, it was Taylor Swift who went home with the most awards, although her wins for the Music Event of the Year (shared with Tim Mcgraw and Keith Urban) and the sought-after Pinnacle Award had already being revealed prior to the awards show. She also won (again, sharing with McGraw and Urban) for Music Video of the Year for 'Highway Don't Care.'

Having served as part of a hosting team in 2009, NPH is back hosting the Emmy's all by himself this time
Neil Patrick Harris will look to further his claim as a natural awards show host when he takes to the stage at the 65th Annual Emmy Awards this Sunday, 22 September. Having built up an impressive resume already as co-host of the awards in 2009 and as a four-time host of the Tony Awards, the How I Met Your Mother star needed no incentive to take on the challenge of hosting the Emmy's this year.
Harris is relishing the chance to host the Emmy's again
"I love TV and the motley crew of people that are part of it," Harris told reporters on Wednesday as the red carpet was laid out in front of Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre ahead of Sunday's ceremony. As the host of the celebration of television, you can bet that NPH had praise for the current crop of shows looking to be honoured at the awards show. He continued, in reference to the wide-ranging scope of shows up for awards, "I think that makes for a better viewing experience of television than ever, and I'm happy to be the guy in charge of honoring that."(via USA Today)

The 'True Blood' star will play Captain Georg Von Trapp in the upcoming NBC production, with Carrie Underwood starring as Maria
Stephen Moyer has been cast as Captain Georg Von Trapp in the upcoming adaptation of the classic musical The Sound of Music. The True Blood star will feature alongside Carrie Underwood, who is playing Maria, in NBC's version of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, which will air on the network just in time for Christmas.
Moyer will make the departure from being a sexy vampire to being a family-minded army captain this Christmas
Moyer will star in the three-hour production, which is being based on the original 1959 Broadway production of The Sound of Music rather than the classic 1965 movie version, in what will be a major departure from his more familiar role in the raunchy HBO vampire series. However far away it seems from his True Blood credentials though, the 43-year-old actor has more than his fair share of musical experience, having most recently starred in a version of Chicago at the Hollywood Bowl.

Carrie Underwood is happy to admit she was "the accident" in her family.
Carrie Underwood, the 30-year-old country star, covers the June issue of Marie Claire wearing a Burberry Prorsum swimsuit with a price tag of $1,195! In the accompanying interview, Underwood opened up about life growing up in Oklahoma and her current home life with hockey pro husband Mike Fisher.
"I'm not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a 'let's talk it out' family. Technically, I have siblings, but they are quite a bit older than me. I was the accident, so I have the only-child syndrome going on," she explained. Underwood, who won American Idol in 2005 and went on to become one of America's biggest country stars, said of her rise to fame, "At the beginning of my career, I used to have panic attacks. People were touching me, screaming - it made me really nervous. In public, I just get nervous. It's a physical reaction, feeling like the walls are closing in.The fans are great. It's not their fault. I don't ever want to come across as ungrateful. But on my end, it is hard for me to process because I am still just me."
As for starting her own family, the singer said she doesn't feel old enough to have children yet, admitting, "I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?"

30 year-old replaces Faith Hill for the show's seventh season
Carrie Underwood is to replace Faith Hill on Sunday Night Football – err, not as a host, she’ll be taking over the theme tune that her country contemporary recently vacated. Hill has been singing Waiting All Day For Sunday Night for six seasons of the NFL show but recently revealed she wouldn’t be returning for a seventh, but the producers have done well in getting Underwood in instead, who will adapt the song to suit her style.
Talking to Billboard, Underwood commented "For me, it just always seemed like something that would be fun to do.” She added "To watch Faith do it week after week, to see that hype for the game, it's something that's so cool." Underwood’s stock is arguably as high as country legend Hill’s; she’s a former American Idol winner and six-time Grammy winner after all, not to mention hugely successful commercially and has come into contact with the NFL before – singing the national anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl.
She’s also married to hockey player Mike Fisher of the Nashville Predators who is friends with several NFL players and is apparently thrilled with his wife’s new career move. "He's a sports dude," she said. "Yeah, he plays hockey, but he definitely loves football, as do I." The first Sunday night game is scheduled for September 8th between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.

Carrie Underwood has already sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl.
Carrie Underwood will sing the opening theme to NBC's Sunday Night Football program, the network announced on Tuesday (April 7, 2013). It appears to be a plum deal for the country star, given SNF is easily one of the most-watched television shows in the country. The new season kicks off in September.
Grammy-winner Underwood replaces fellow country star Faith Hill on the show, who had sang the theme 'Waiting All Day For Sunday Night' since 2007. "I'm very excited," Underwood, 30, told Reuters, "I think it's a perfect fit and I am such a sports fan and football fan, and we love Sunday nights around my household, so for me to be a part of it is something really special."
Underwood's signing is probably more relevant to sports fans given she is married to the Canadian ice hockey star Mike Fisher. She also sang the national anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl - the biggest event on the football calendar. A prominent musical introduction has become a staple for prime time football broadcasts in the U.S. since Hank Williams Jr reworked his song 'All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight' as the theme for the Monday Night Football program in 1989.

Country legends softly rock the O2 Arena over two days
If you thought you were safe from country music UK, then think again, because Nashville Tim Mcgraw headed across the Atlantic to play a special show at the O2 Arena in London, billed as Country To Country, on Saturday night (March 16, 2013).

The country music star likes to control the few areas of her life that she feels able to
Carrie Underwood has spoken about her ‘OCD’ approach to time-keeping, arguing that it’s one of the few elements of her life that she can control, so she likes to be early for any appointments, wherever she can. “I'm O.C.D. about time, I'm early for everything to the point where it freaks people out,” says the country music star. “That's my one - it's a good thing I guess, but I know it's annoying to the people around me. I'm on time for everything. If I'm late something's wrong, like I've wrecked my car… My life is so nuts, there are few things I am in control of, but those I am uber in control of. That's why I'm on time, because I can control that.”
The pressures of fame don’t just affect Underwood’s approach to punctuality though. She admitted that she is ‘weird’ about food and cleanliness too, telling the Daily Mail “I'm weird about food, because I can be… There's certain organisational things. Stuff has its place all the time. I'm not a clean freak, but there are certain things that have their place and that's the place they have to stay.”
Carrie is in London, currently, because she’s headlining the Country to Country music festival, taking place at the O2 Arena in the capital city. Carrie told the UK publication that she’ll be mixing up her set a bit so that those attending the event will know some of the songs, as well as introducing them to her newer material. “we definitely want to sing songs we thought people might recognise a bit more, so there's stuff from my first album that I haven't done for a while in my concerts back home.”

Underwood and Swift: is there anything to the feud rumors, or were they devised by the American tabloid press to drum up some excitement ahead of a dull looking Grammy Awards? It's becoming clearer by the day that it may well have been the latter, with Carrie Underwood claiming she knows nothing of any bad blood between herself and the biggest country star in the world. Rumors ahead of the Grammys suggested Swift had made it clear that she didn't intend to sit anywhere near Carrie inside the Staples Center, "Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her," a source recently told US Weekly.
Underwood addressed the rumors during an interview with Gayle King for a CBS This Morning interview (set to air Wednesday), saying, "No [there's no feud], not that I know of at least." Seemingly in a pleasant mood, Carrie said she was a big fan of Swift, even revealing which song is her favorite. "I really like 'I Knew You Were Trouble.' It sounded a lot different for her. I liked the branching out, trying some different sounds," she told King. Though Underwood's remarks certainly make it less likely that such a feud really exists, we're still to hear from Taylor Swift, who was reported to have ordered the Grammys seating planners to split the pair up in the first place. The question is, why would Underwood be rude to the 'We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together,' singer?
Both entertainers had prominent roles at Sunday's Grammy Awards, with Swift opening the show and Underwood delivering perhaps the most memorable performance of the night in a 'digital projection screen dress' while singing Blown Away and Two Black Cadillacs.
Continue reading: Underwood And Swift: Are Carrie And Taylor Really Feuding?
Ahead of the Grammys awards on Sunday, speculation was rife that Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood had made it very, very clear that they didn’t intend to sit anywhere near each other inside the Staples Center. “Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her,” a source recently told Us Weekly. So was it true? Were the two biggest names in country music really at each other’s throats?
Not according to Underwood.
The 29-year-old Grammy winner was quizzed on the apparent feud by Gayle King for a CBS This Morning interview (set to air Wednesday), saying, “No [there’s no feud], not that I know of at least.” Somewhat ironically, Carrie said she was a big fan of Swift, even revealing which song is her favorite. “I really like ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’ It sounded a lot different for her. I liked the branching out, trying some different sounds,” she told King.

Beyonce can't put a foot wrong at the moment
Enough about the winners of the Grammy Awards, what we want to know is who won when it came to the fashion parade! Yes, whilst Mumford & Sons might well have taken the evening's top prize, album of the year, their folky style has no place in this piece, the best dressed last night (February 10, 2013) as usual proving to be those who constantly show pedigree when it comes to stepping out of an evening looking glamorous. We'd count Beyonce among those; even when she is putting a foot wrong - like lip-syncing the national anthem - she manages to come out it blooming, so choosing an outift to wear for the Grammy's should be no problem for her. So it proved with the above black and white retro looking number.

Carrie Underwood’s $31 million necklace was the talk of the town at last night’s Grammy awards. Most singers want to look a million dollars when they show up to perform at the Grammys but Carrie decided she was going to go one better. Or 30 better, to be precise, as she rocked up wearing a stunning designer necklace, by Johnathon Arndt.
The necklace, according to US magazine, featured 381 carats of oval, pearl, marquis and brilliant white diamonds, a press release from Arndt revealed. Carrie wore the necklace to complement her black, strapless Roberto Cavalli dress. Or, in this instance, we suppose she was wearing the Roberto Cavalli dress to complement the $31 million worth of bling that she was sporting. Underwood, 29, joked that the necklace was “worth more than me.”
It wasn’t just the jewellery that stunned the Grammy’s audience though. During her performance, in which she sang her tracks ‘Blown Away’ and ‘Two Black Cadillacs,' she wore what appeared to be a simple, light grey ball gown. When the performance was under way though, the dress projected a variety of different images. It was a very different look to the one that she opted for off-stage but it seems that both were considered winners in this year’s awards style stakes.

To say a person or performer lights up a room is often merely a turn of phrase, but when it comes to Carrie Underwood, it is meant in the most literal of senses. Her sensational performance at the 55th Grammy Awards last night in Los Angeles was given something extra by her extraordinary dress which acted as a screen for which to project a variety of beautiful light imagery onto.
Underwood proved that her win for Best Country Solo Performance was well deserved as she sang 'Blown Away', the track for which she won the award. The incredible Theia couture gown was adorned with roses, butterflies and more abstract shapes as the song went on. The singer had to stand perfectly still for the effect to work, which she managed to do effortlessly.
As the Daily Mail reports, the dress was designed by four people and took 80 hours to make. With hand embroidered Swarovski crystal detailing, and 10 yards of satin, it was managed to bridge the gap between fashion and technology. And despite it being difficult to tear your eyes away from the dress during her performance, that was part of the effect. "There are so many big performances at the Grammys and sometimes I like to just stand still and perform," she said. "So (the dress) was the best way to do it, to create a cool environment."
