Carrie Underwood returned to Las Vegas to kickstart the last leg of her residency shows of the year, and the “Denim & Rhinestones” artist rocked several stunning looks throughout the powerful performance. Underwood took to Instagram to share a few photos from the show, gushing that “last night was 🔥 …Man, I love my job!!! 💜”
Photos show Underwood on stage wearing sleeves with long fringe, changing into a gorgeous purple dress, donning dramatic glasses and more, surrounded by her band members, elaborate set pieces and jaw-dropping aerial acts. On Wednesday (May 11), Underwood kicked off “the first of the last #REFLECTION shows of the year… 6 #REFLECTION shows left in 2022!” While she’s in Las Vegas, Underwood will serve as a mentor to the Top 5 American Idol contestants from the home of her residency, which is hosted at the Resorts World Theater. The 2005 Idol winner said she “can’t wait” to return as a mentor.
Underwood launched her residency with a strong start in early December, gushing after the first show: “It was great! I feel like I blacked out for 90 minutes — what happened? It was good. First one down. Yay!” She also gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at her residency, including with a stop at the wardrobe department. “There’s something glitzy and glamour-y about women in country music,” Underwood said at the time. “We love our rhinestones, we love our wardrobe changes, we’ve been doing our own version of Vegas in Nashville for generations.”
