Carrie Underwood helped to mark the beginning of the festive season by singing a rendition of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’ by changing the words to “You made me cook a butterball”.
Thankfully this isn’t Carrie’s next single, but just part of a funny skit on Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy, Carrie and Rashida Jones all sang popular songs but changed the lyrics to make them all relate to the holidays.
The Daft Punk hit ‘Get Lucky’ turned into “We’re up all night to eat turkey”, Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ was changed to “you’re gonna hear me snore”, while Lorde’s song ‘Royals’ became “And we get to spin dreidels (Dreidels!)” to celebrate Hanukkah.
Carrie’s version even included the weird singing cat who was last seen floating over Miley Cyrus at the AMAs. Although it was obviously supposed to be a joke, I was surprised to find that Carrie’s version was actually quite beautiful and unlike Miley, the singer didn’t need to wear her underwear to disguise a an obvious lack of talent.
Even the lyrics were improved: “You made me cook a butterball/ And then a green bean casserole/ All you did was sit and watch football/ And ignored all of your fa-a-mily/ Ignored your fa-a-mily”
Icona Pop’s hit ‘I love it’, Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ and The Lumineer’s song ‘Ho Hey’ were also parodied in the medley. Check it out above.

Uh, should someone tell Carrie Underwood she’s got ‘hot, sexy, talented and sweet’ covered? Carrie is already a hot wife. She’s also a dedicated partner; the popular country singer tells People magazine that she’ll quit her job at any moment if her husband Mike Fisher tells her to. We doubt that’ll happen. Carrie’s bringin’ home too much bacon!
On her husband: “Even when he’s like, ‘I’m so out of shape,’ he still has a six-pack. Having Mike there – I want to be a hot wife!”
On her marriage and career: “If Mike ever told me he needed me to quit, I’d quit. When you make that promise to somebody, and you stand before God and your family and friends, you’ve got to do everything that you possibly can to make that work.”
Mike and Carrie’s third anniversary is this July. For Underwood, “frequent texts, hosting wine-and-grill nights at home with friends and meeting up for casual dates – at Subway” is part of what makes her marriage work.

Carrie Underwood belted out "Blown Away" in a 4 feet 5 inches-wide Theia gown that lights up. Carrie was the first celebrity to wear Theia four years ago. Underwood says that she likes to just stand still sometimes and sing so it was perfect.
Carrie told reporters backstage: “We wanted it to be artful and dramatic. I just like to stand still and sing sometimes, so this seemed like the best way I could do that and still create something visually attention-capturing.”
That it was. Carrie's dress, and performance, is not to be forgotten.

Taylor Swift told Ryan Seacrest that she's opening the 2013 Grammy Awards. Taylor will attend the 2013 Grammys with her competitors and peers, one of those people being Carrie Underwood. Unlike Swifty, Carrie is no one trick pony. And she's beautiful. Carrie has a lot that Taylor could be jealous of.
Us Weekly exclusively reports: Grammy execs were ordered to keep Swift, 23, and Underwood, 29, "from crossing paths" at the Feb. 10 show "since they hate each other!" We guess Harry Styles won't be attending.
Says a Swift pal, "Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her."
If Carrie doesn't like Swifty, she doesn't have to be fake like everyone else in Hollywood is! This rumor just makes us love Carrie even more.

Welp, Carrie Underwood isn’t the first woman to think that her man will never stray. She wholeheartedly trusts her hockey player husband Mike Fisher and that’s great. The beautiful singer graces the cover of Allure magazine. Clearly in love, Carrie says that she is married to Prince Charming.
On her marriage: “We’ve seen a lot of celebrities, professional athletes, not exactly always being on their best behavior away from girlfriends, wives, families. People would say, ‘Do you ever worry that—you know—he’s an athlete, he’s young, he’s good-looking?’ And I’ve never had to worry about him, because I’ve never trusted anybody so completely. Or I didn’t know the true meaning of trust. He just…he just wouldn’t do that.”
