Fans react after Carrie Underwood ‘debuts’ her new face at ACM Awards show after ‘gruesome’ accident


Country singer Carrie Underwood debuted her new face Sunday night at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards, to the delight of millions of fans.

Underwood received up to 50 stitches on her face following a horrific accident at home back in November and not only did the popular recording artist not look any worse for the wear after such a “gruesome” incident, she looked fabulous as she performed her new single “Cry Pretty” at the awards show in Las Vegas.

The singer receiving a roaring standing ovation, and struggled to control her emotions. Real tears trying to compete with the tear-shaped glitter makeup below her eyes.
