Carrie Underwood is Your Favorite Female Singer

Carrie Underwood is Your Favorite Female Singer

Carrie Underwood opens the show and sings “I Know You Won’t” during the 2009 Annual People’s Choice Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Wednesday (January 7) in Los Angeles.

The 25-year old singer wore three dresses: a strapless gown (Naeem Khan), a neon green dress, and a neon orange dress (Jenny Packham). Carrie walked away with three awards: Favorite Country Song (“Last Name”), Favorite Star Under 35, and Favorite Female Singer.

Tony Greco, a fitness trainer and close friend of Fisher‘s, said the rumors of her and hockey player Mike Fisher are absolutely true. “I think it’s serious, I mean he’s really happy with her. They’re a perfect match,” Greco told the Ottawa Citizen.

  • Oh no

    I watched the show last night until very early on they got to this “award.” Then I was sure this was total BS and turned it off. Carrie Underwood?!? Who in the world believes that?

  • Molly

    She’s not my favorite singer but whatever, I guess a lot of people like her.

  • J

    LOVED the performance and the outfits!!

    Those awards look heavy :)

  • flutters

    Jared: The article says Tony Greco is a close friend of Mike Fisher’s, not Carrie’s.

    Amazing performance. Surprisingly, I like the green dress, it’s a great shape. I love the orange color but I’m not sure about its shape at the bottom.

  • Mimia

    fun

  • http://www.vectormotors.com gerard Vandenberg

    I don’t think so, pal!!
    YOU WERE ON THE HIGH-SCHOOL IN COMPTON(los angeles)?
    …………………………..thought so!!

  • sarah

    I’m sorry but she is not a better singer than Alicia keys and Rihanna. I think she got more than she deserved. The same thing happened at the Grammy last year, i don’t know what it it people seem to think she is a great singer.

  • Sam

    SHE IS MY FAVORITE HORSE/DONKEY FACE….
    but no way she is my favorite singer….btw when she sings looks like she has diarrhea…

  • nicole

    I’m so happy she won, she deserved it so much!! Her performance was FLAWLESS!!

  • meg

    I think she’s more cute than pretty. It’s all the makeup artists and hair stylists and hair extensions that are starting to make her look plastic. She looked better before they all overprocessed her looks. Now, she looks like she has had plastic surgery even though she probably has not.

    I LOVE the ORANGE dress. It looks great on her.

    She’s an okay singer….not the best, but definitely NOT the worst. I’m surprised that she continues to win award after award after award because I think there are plenty of equally talented singers out there…Faith Hill is better, IMO…Sara Evans is as good….Martina McBride is as good if not better. Maybe it’s because she appeals to a younger age group like Taylor Swift?

  • Ha!

    No, she’s really not my favorite singer. At all.

  • friend

    What amazing vocals. She deserves to win. I am not a fan of country music, but I know great vocals when I hear them and Carrie has superior vocals to the other nominees. I appreciate the fact that she does not appear half naked to get people to listen to her.

  • http://musingsofapcf.blogspot.com/ Malia

    As many times as I’ve hears that song, and seen her sing it live, last night was by far the best! What an amazing performance! Go Carrie!

    http://musingsofapcf.blogspot.com/

  • kim

    I couldn’t sit through half of this performance, I thought it sucked. Her green dress is cute though, that orange one isn’t.

  • Erica

    I love Carrie!!! She is beautiful inside and out! She deserves those awards!

  • Daniela

    I thought the song Carrie sang was horrrrrrrrrrrible. What is up with the shouting she kept doing and talk about being repetitious. Of all the hits Carrie has, she chose this one? Why?

    Who is her make-up artist and why do they insist on giving Christina Aguilera competition on how many layers of cake makeup can we put on her face? Carrie is a barbie doll. She looks so plastic now a days and nothing like the girl that came out of idol.

    She got 1 out of 3 on the dresses. Green was nice.

  • Karen

    I am not a fan of Carrie’s. Have seen her twice but only because she was opening for Keith Urban and I am a huge fan of his. IMO, she does have a great voice (except for when she is yelling to be louder) but she is NOT an entertainer at all. (I know that she did not get an award for that. Just stating a fact) She is stiff and looks like a chicken strutting around when she walks in 4 inch heels. She needs to watch her own performances and learn from them. How can she think that flailing her arms back and forth and that strut look good? I do think that songwriters are “throwing” their songs at her because she IS so popular right now and has a huge following.

  • Cynthia

    She’s NOT my favorite country singer. Why everytime Underdog is on some award show, she has to bring a full wardrobe?! How do you spell INSECURE!

  • cutie

    cute! :-)

  • Jessica

    How can you people honestly say that Carrie can’t sing? Do you have ears? I bet you think Taylor Swift is an amazing singer.

    If you don’t like Carrie’s music, fine, that’s your opinion, but to sit there and say she is a horrible singer is ludicrous.

    That was a simply spectacular performance. Whether you like the song or not.

    (p.s. Carrie is a way better singer than Rhianna and Alicia Keys. Both are good, but not as good as Carrie)

  • anon

    AND, she doesn’t have the taint/stink of Romo on her!

  • Daniela

    I acknowledge Carrie can sing, but thats not what she did last night. That was a full blown on shout, a repetitive one at that.

    Also, I think Carrie is better than Rihanna, but Alicia Keys? Not only is Alicia more beautiful, but she writes the better hit songs, and of course Alicia leaves her in the dust when he comes to stage presence/peformance.

  • Daniela

    it* instead of he

  • lala

    Honestly, Rihanna better than Carrie ? What are you smoking.

  • Heckler

    If these comments are any indication of the people’s opinion of Carrie, I demand a recount! so who voted for her anyway?
    I’m on board with the people who are sick of her. She was ok when she first got here, but now she’s just plain annoying. The wardrobe, hair, makeup, smile, and full orchestra performance was pretentious. The song is mediocre at best, and same for her stage presence She gets all the awards whether she deserves them or not and that really is angering.

  • michelle

    she has a great voice, she deserved those awards.

    i just want to make a point , Alicia is a great singer, Rihanna not so, but they all have different styles, unique voices, as we all have different tastes in singers voices
    ……so stop saying she is no better then A or B.

  • Billie

    Carrie is one of the best performers out there right now. Some of you may not like her..but she sure got your attention didn’t she? You’re on here talking about her! She’s got beauty, brains and talent! Carrie doesn’t have to strut around half naked or in some awful outfit to get attention like so many others. She’s one classy lady! AND she does deserve every award she’s gotten. The People’s Choice awards are fan voted idiots! What does that tell you??? ALOT of people love Carrie!

    Good job Carrie! You owned that show last night!!!

  • Yasmina

    ALICIA KEYS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Carrie Underwhelming

  • http://www.groovaciousboop.blogspot.com groovacious

    she was amazing. loved her performance!! she deserved the wards.

  • Anastacia

    she looks like barbie…

  • Amanda

    Those who say she was shouting obviously do not have experience with singing. In order to get big notes out with the amount of power that is needed to make them sound good, you have to be louder, but shouting a note and singing it powerfully are two different things and have to different sounds. That was NOT yelling.
    She did amazing vocally. Good for her.

  • JANE

    LOVED THAT SONG CARRIE!! U R A FABULOUS SINGER!!! AND U DON’T HAVE TO DRESS LIKE SLUTTY JESSICA SIMPSON.(WHO CANNOT SING) U CAN REALLY HOLD THOSE NOTES CARRIE….U R A FABULOUS SINGER…..U WILL HAVE A LONG CAREER……AND SOOOO HAPPY TO HEAR U HAVE FOUND LOVE……..!!!! HE’S A LUCKY GUY!!!!

  • Melisa

    I cannot stand her. I had to switch over. honestly I’d prefer Jessica Simpson. There is no way she should have won this award over Alicia keys who is a beautiful and talented singer and songwriter.
    Alicia was insulted last night. Also rihanna deserved it more for being a great ‘performer/artist.

  • amanda

    3/4 of these comments are complete and utter bull how dare any of u say that she cant sing and doesnt deserve this award??????!!!!!! she is not ONLY a spectacular singer/vocalist/performer, but is a wonderful person and u can totally tell that she adores all her loyal fans( who voted to give her this award btw!!!!!!!!!!) So, why on earth are all of you even commenting on this if u only have bad things to say about her?? Honestly, that makes absolutely no sense to me, so do please explain. You have ABSOLUTELY no reason to be saying the things u are about her, its quite horrendous actually and disrespectful. On the otherhand, Carrie, I love you and you are amazing and always look poised and gorgeous and stunning, and you TOTALLY deserved every single ounce of all THREE (THREE I REPEAT!!) awards that u won last night at the 2009 PCA’s.

  • Hailz

    Carrie is amazing. Great performance

  • kris

    Are some of you kidding??
    Carrie easily has one of the best vocals of todays music
    and even if you are a hater you can’t deny that .
    her voice is amazing and she deserves every award she gets
    ..
    and shouting.
    seriously get ears
    that was one of the best performances she’s ever gave.
    and she is a million times better than Rihanna .. Rihanna can’t even hit the notes carrie can.
    jeez people
    if you don’t like her then okay… but stop dissing the girl on her vocals it makes you sound stupid .. She’s got a great voice and she’s beautiful ..hate her all you want but truth of the matter is .. she’s one of the most successful artists of today and one little comment from haters that don’t matter isn’t going to change that at all.
    get over it.
    she’s great
    and people love her.
    clearly that’s why she won the PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD.

  • kris

    oh and one last thing.
    Carrie doesn’t need to have dancers and props and big flashing lights and all those other crap that so many artists have today.. Sure it’s entertaining and they’re putting on a performance.. but the song carrie sang tonight didn’t need any of that.. her just standing there was enough to draw you in and it was enough for her to give an emotional great performance. Those that say that you need all those things on stage in order to make a great performance is ridiculous … The best performers in my opinion are the ones that can just sing beautifully without all the distractions.

  • ali

    carrie is so beautiful and talented! i saw her in concert last month. she was amazing!!!!!!

  • DBc

    wonder whose hair took longer: Gary’s or Carrie’s?

  • anon

    #39 I completely agree. A great performer shouldn’t need all those other distractions, and Carrie doesn’t. It’s nice to have on some songs, like maybe her performance of Before He Cheats at last year’s grammy’s, but for a song like this she doesn’t need anything extra. Her voice sells the song all on it’s own.

  • volleyballgrl

    amen number 14!!! SHE IS SO HUMBLE AND DOWN TO EARTH AND NOT SLEAZY!!! I LOVE CARRIE!

  • kae

    I’m a huge Alicia Keys fan! She is an outstanding R&B singer. I’m also a huge Carrie Underwood fan! She is an amazing country singer. Two different singers with amazing voices. Carrie sings awesome live. Everyone can’t sing live. Leave Carrie alone, she always delivers and she deserves her awards.

  • liza

    I love Carrie she’s the best!!!! She sooooooooooooooo deserved those three awards!!! go Carrie!!!

  • Terry lynn

    Carrie is one of the top vocalists in all of the US and Canada. She wins these awards because she deserves them and she is so wonderful to her fans. She has it all and it makes some people so jealous because she has been called close to perfect and yeah she is. Other awards that aren’t fan voted are voted on by INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS and even they think Carrie is deserving and an award winner. So stop your whining. She will be around a long while so get over it. She wins fashion and beauty awards too so even THOSE PROFESSIONALS agree with her fans. You haters on here don’t know jack except for your bad attitudes.

  • Texasstarfan

    When Carrie was Co-headling with Keith Urban it was her first tour ever.
    The Fall leg on her single headling tour with Little Big Town warming up was by far much better because she had experience under her belt. You could see how she had grown in stage presence because she learned alot from Keith and she needed time to work the kinks out. It was amazing how far she went in those six months.

    Carrie writes her own music as well as buying songs. She plays electric and acoustic guitar and piano. She is very talented. Don’t be suprised if she does a piano ballad like Keith on the next tour.

    Fisherwood Rocks! Way to go Mike and Carrie.

  • Christina

    Yay Carrie!!! I’m so happy she won, she deserved to win every category she was nominated in. She sounded so beautiful and she by far is the best singers around today, love her!

  • Vanessa

    She sucked!
    Plus nobody likes a homophobic country singer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    She needs so much makeup to look appealing….
    and her droopy weird nose was so distracting!

  • Ginger

    Wow! I LOVE THIS SONG!! She she sings so gooooood! Better than a lot of country singers and Jessica Simpsons out there…. hahaha.. Taylor Swift? i can’t stand that girls’ voice and her stupid lyrics!! She sings like she’s 10 years old!! She should sing and sing to lyrics her age! 18!!!
    Carrie Underwood has an amazing voice and a great country singer!!

  • brian

    Best performance ever? From the video, she’s singing off key, screaming, moving very awkwardly and her dress looks like an old prom dress cast off complete with goofy green earrings. Her getting any award is an insult to Keyes and all legitimate performers. A few of her idol fans must spend their day casting 100s of votes. There’s no other excuse for that mess winning any award.
