    Carrie has learned how to sing with emotion, big time. She's come a long way since her robotic peforming days on AI.
    "Tons of surprises, but it wouldn't be 'American Idol' without it, would it?" Cowell told MTV News. "At the end of the day, I could go out and find 12 great singers, but that's kind of boring. The fact that there's people there who shouldn't be there makes it 'American Idol.' "

    Tonight are the CMT Music Video awards. 8est 7cst on CMT. Carrie is nominated for Video of the Year & Female Video of the Year, but I would be surprised if she won either. She will be singing All American Girl. As an aside to AAG, Carrie has been quoted in interviews as saying that the note she hits in AAG is the highest note she has ever been able to hit.

    Carrie just won an award from the music service Rhapsody for Some Hearts as the most played album on their system last year.

    Point #1 Vitamin Water is sponsoring Carries solo headling tour & she has a brand new endorsement deal with them.
    Point #2 The rapper 50cent was a huge stockholder in the company & when Coke bought it he profitted to the tune of $100 million.
    Point #3 Click the link below & see some photos of the 2 together along with Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, behind the scenes during filming some new commercial spots. Looks like she is having a great time.
    Point #4 The continued sold out concert appearances, continued great album sales & chart success with all her singles, & now this deal...this is going to be one incredibly lucrative year for Ms. Carrie.

    It looks like Carrie & Keith are still doing really well at the box office. They have just a few more co-headlining date to do before he ends a year on the road & retires to record his new album & become a Father. Carrie forges on with Josh Turner through May & Jason Michael Carroll joins he in June.

    Carrie Underwood bottles her energy

    Grammy award winning mega-star is the latest celeb to join the a-list vitaminwater® family

    Whitestone, NY (April 17, 2008) – Carrie Underwood’s hot and Glacéau vitaminwater is just about the only thing that can quench her thirst. Carrie has been a fan of vitaminwater for quite some time and incorporates it into her overall healthy lifestyle. It only makes sense that she is going public with her beverage of choice and is excited to tell the world about this healthy partnership.

    Carrie joins an impressive roster of a-list vitaminwater fanatics – including 50 cent and Lebron James – in the coveted role of official partner of the brand. vitaminwater is the fastest growing beverage in the country as people everywhere are making the switch to healthier, more functional beverages.
    “I have a hectic schedule and vitaminwater really helps to keep me going,” said Carrie underwood. “I like to have a lot of energy on stage, and since vitaminwater energy happens to be my favorite flavor, I’m thrilled to have my name on it.”

    Carrie is co-creating a limited-edition label for vitaminwater energy which will be available in stores this summer. The label will speak to Carrie’s passion for vitaminwater and feature fun facts that people may not know about the music mega-star. vitaminwater will be on the road with Carrie’s nationwide “Carnival Ride Tour” this spring and summer. Carrie, along with numerous other a-list vitaminwater partners, will also be featured in upcoming commercials for the brand to be released this summer.

    “Carrie epitomizes what vitaminwater stands for – healthy living, great personality, natural talent and lots of energy,” said Rohan Oza, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Glacéau vitaminwater. “We’re proud to be the first brand to figure out how to bottle Carrie Underwood’s energy.”



    I had to come back & edit this because I wanted to include this video link of Carrie & Fitty Cent during their time filming the commercials.
