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 “
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.
Oh, and Underwood won the award for vocal event of the year for her duet with Keith Urban, “The Fighter.”
Her appearance was a far cry from what was envisioned after she shared details of the accident with fan club members.

Underwood informed fans, “When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”
