Carrie Underwood had her Emmy's performance on Sept. 22 as she paid tribute to "The Beatles" and JFK. According to Enstarz, Carrie's rendition of "Yesterday" was "beautiful," but that's not how the Twitterverse reacted. Even fans of the country singer thought that her performance was lackluster and kind of... not amazing.
Carrie, who first found fame on "American Idol" (she won), is gearing up for "The Sound of Music" live which is set to air on NBC at the end of the year. She was likely chosen to perform because of her voice -- and because her people got her the gig to help get her back out there in anticipation of her upcoming television appearance.
Carrie Underwood's Emmy's performance was rather boring. She didn't change "Yesterday" enough for people to actually hate it but she didn't perform it in such a way that left people with chills. It was meant to be a beautiful tribute set up by Don Cheadle as "two emotional charged events, forever linked in our memories" were remembered 50 years later... but Carrie just didn't seem like a good fit -- or maybe her song choice was the problem.
Carrie usually stuns and leaves people breathless with her incredible talent. For some reason, it just didn't work for her tonight. She didn't sound terrible, it just wasn't memorable and people were a little confused about the tribute in general. Perhaps having her sing someone subdued during the annual tribute to talent lost would have been more suitable.
