Carrie Underwood's Grammys Performance Has Tongues Wagging

On April 3, the 64th annual Grammy Awards aired live from the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas. The show was originally supposed to air in January, but concerns about COVID-19 led to its postponement. The Grammys were finally able to be broadcast and the show ended up being an entertaining night full of iconic performances and well-deserved wins. The ceremony featured some fantastic showings from some of the music industry's biggest names, including H.E.R., Brandi Carlile, Justin Bieber, BTS, and Chris Stapleton. But one performance seemed to get fans talking more than any other: Carrie Underwood's debut live rendition of her newest single, "Ghost Story."

Her most recent song is a haunting melody about a former flame that she released in March, her newest release since "My Savior" in 2021. The record was a hit, and her fans seemed thrilled with the effort. Underwood's vocals were on point (as they always are) but, for this particular performance, people were talking about more than just her incredible talent.

Carrie Underwood's look had fans talking

Even though Carrie Underwood got her start as part of a singing competition, as her fame grew, she became known for more than just her voice. Though her talent is undeniable, Underwood's looks have also been known to get people talking. Specifically, people love her incredibly toned legs. Most likely knowing that they are her best asset, Underwood's wardrobe for her performance of her new single, "Ghost Story," highlighted her fantastic pins. Changing her look from her red carpet outfit, Underwood sported a tight, purple mini dress with a voluminous train that did nothing but draw attention to her toned and fit legs.

Fans of Underwood took to Twitter to express their fondness for the singer's incredibly gorgeous gams. "Those legs just might save the Earth!!" one person wrote in part. "Carrie Underwood out here squatting 850lbs while dropping new tracks in the studio. She about to pop a positive for PED's backstage at the Grammys," another fan joked. "Carrie Underwood's legs won the night!!!" a third user penned. One thing's for sure — Underwood never skips leg day.

Carrie Underwood and her fitness focus

Carrie Underwood has always been open about her passion when it comes to health and fitness. During her journey to find what kind of approach works best for her, the star released a book in 2020 titled "Find Your Path" along with the Fit52 fitness app to help folks feel their best 52 weeks of the year, per The Nashville Edit.

In an interview with Women's Health in 2021, Underwood shared, "My favorite thing about my body is the strength that it possesses." She chatted through a body-scan-breakdown of fitness and self-care, and she revealed some insights into working out while pregnant and bouncing back into her favorite active routines. She also credited wearing heels regularly while performing as an extra workout for her calves.

When it comes to her leg day workouts, she opts for supersets of a few exercises like tuck jumps, walking lunges, sumo squats, and Romanian deadlifts — all with varied dumbbell weights. This paired with focused treadmill cardio results in the toned look fans hype up while she walks the red carpet and commands a stage. Looks like we know what we'll be trying at the gym this week.

Carrie Underwood finally found what works for her

Carrie Underwood is all about feeling confident and positive when talking body image. She told Women's Health in 2020 that criticism online about her body following the success of her run on "American Idol" shifted her focus to nutrition and fitness. "I shouldn't care what other people think about me," she acknowledged. Nonetheless, this still started her on a path toward feeling good in her own body. "I knew I could be better for myself," she said, "and I let my haters be my motivators."

Strict diets and limited calorie-counting weren't working for the singer. Instead, she prefers high protein meals to pair with her love of exercise. As for self-care, bubble baths aren't really her thing. "My self-care is my gym time, and that's a stress reliever for me," she said. If only we could all have that kind of motivation!

Keeping a healthy balance of diet, exercise, skin care, and overall activity, fans still cannot get over Underwood's stunning legs. She laughed during an interview with Us Weekly, noting genetics definitely come into play, as her legs are naturally more muscular than the rest of her body. However, she did share tips for how she achieves their practically glowing appearance. The big secret? Hydration! Drinking plenty of water, staying healthy, and moisturizing regularly seems to be the recipe for success.
