Carrie Underwood is known for delivering stellar live performances, but her 2013 Grammy performance is often considered one of her best.
Underwood appears on stage wearing a simple, gray-colored ball gown, accompanied by one single band member playing the acoustic guitar. She kicks off her performance by singing a stripped-down, simplistic version of her 2012 hit song "Blown Away."
Then suddenly, while Underwood holds out a long note at the end of "Blown Away," the curtain behind her goes up, revealing the rest of her band.
Shortly after that, two blue dots of light appear on the bottom of Underwood's dress. As Underwood starts singing her other 2012 hit, "Two Black Cadillacs," the two blue dots turn into a spiral design, which covers the entire front of her dress.
The designs on Underwood's dress change throughout the performance, in one case turning into a night sky with exploding fireworks as the band makes a powerful entrance. With the band playing instruments such as violins and the timpani, Underwood's performance of "Two Black Cadillacs" has a very orchestra-like vibe.
At the end of the performance, Underwood's dress changes to display the bright orange wing of a Monarch butterfly. After a little while, the dress transforms again to display a moving image of dozens of butterflies, and the screens behind and beside Underwood fill up with the butterflies as well, creating the illusion that they are flying into the audience.
The audience is truly "blown away" by Underwood's performance, erupting into cheers and applause before she even finishes singing the last note.
Underwood's performances are always stunning, but her color-changing dress makes this one an absolute must-see!
