One of the most talked about moments of Super Bowl LII was Carrie Underwood's return to the screen with her first music video in two years. Underwood looked as gorgeous as ever in a flirty silver dress as she belted out the lyrics to "The Champion," the Super Bowl Anthem she co-wrote just for the big game.
While Carrie's infamous legs were a huge topic of social media discussion, fans also wondered if the video was their first look at Carrie since her horrific fall in November that resulted in her receiving "40 to 50 stitches." In a letter to her fan club on New Years Eve, the "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer warned fans that the accident left her "not quite looking the same."
"In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well," Carrie wrote. "I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40-50 stitches in. Now, here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful."
With the exception of a photo snapped with a fan following a workout session at a Nashville gym, Carrie has yet to be seen in public.
After Carrie's Super Bowl appearance, the question remained...Did Carrie film the video before or after her accident in November? A post made to Carrie's website seems to indicate that the video was filmed prior to her accident on November 10.
"Multi-platinum superstar Carrie Underwood will open NBC’s Super Bowl LII on February 4 with a video filmed last year for her anthemic song, 'The Champion,'" the post dated January 12 reads.
Sunday night's video premiere is just the beginning for "The Champion" as it has been chosen to be a theme song for the 2018 Winter Olympics that are kicking off on February 9.
