Carrie Underwood wowed everyone on the red carpet before she even took the stage at the Grammy awards last night, and it had a little something to do with the $31 million necklace she was rocking.
The country star paired the jewels with a black strapless Roberto Cavalli dress and admitted it was on her mind the entire night.
“It’s heavy on my soul,” Underwood said. “I’m afraid someone is going to tackle me and steal it … It’s worth more than me.”
The necklace consisted of 381 carats worth of dazzling white diamonds. Later, Underwood owned the stage during her performance of “Blown Away” and “Two Black Cadillacs”, wearing a full ball gown which featured images projected on it that changed from butterflies to a galaxy.
“It took a lot of precision,” she said of the projections. “They can do a lot of amazing things with projectors these days. We had a dress especially made. I said I should take that home and we can watch movies on it.”
Underwood ended up taking home a Grammy for her hit “Blown Away”.
“I love making country music that I feel like anybody can get into, no matter what genre you listen to. I just want to make good songs, sing good songs, write good songs,” she said.
