Carrie Underwood critics: 'We love Carrie' trends on Twitter after critics react

Carrie Underwood critics stand down... the country singer has a message for you all. After a less than stellar performance on "The Sound of Music Live" last Thursday, Underwood has gotten quite a bit of negative feedback -- and on Friday, she took to her Twitter account to respond -- and on Dec. 8, her fans took to Twitter in support of her.

"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight... 1 Peter 2:1-25 (sic)," Carrie tweeted the day after her highly anticipated performance. Carrie's fans came out in full force after that, tweeting messages with the hashtag "WeloveCarrie," making it one of the hottest trends in the United States this weekend.

Carrie Underwood critics have said that Underwood was a mediocre (at best) actress and that her portrayal of Maria (who will always be Julie Andrews) was lackluster. And while that might be true for some, the real truth of the matter is that Underwood took on a huge task -- just her fourth acting gig ever -- and she did it live. And she did well -- she has a great voice and she managed.

What most people had a problem with was that the theatrical version of "The Sound of Music" wasn't what they expected or what they were used to. And that isn't Carrie's fault. It's just something that shouldn't have been touched -- and while Underwood was certainly brave for taking it on, she just didn't do it justice -- because she couldn't.

Are Carrie Underwood critics being too harsh? How do you think she did?
