American Idol‘s season 4 champ Carrie Underwood returned to her alma mater Wednesday to perform her updated version of Randy Travis’s country classic “I Told You So” (with the musician himself). Carrie also updated her look, sporting a new faux bob with her frock by Tracy Reese dress. While it may have looked like Carrie had cut her hair, her rep confirms that her still-long blonde locks were merely pinned up. And she topped it all off with a big black bow! Tell us: What do you think of Carrie’s faux bob? Would you wear it? Vote in our poll below!

Fat? Please do not project your own self-hate and body image issues onto this healthy, slim and lovely woman.

Yes, the hair was not great. But the performance was spot-on and she looked great overall.

OK, so as soon as she came on stage I told my husband, “What did she do to her hair, I hate it!” Of course he replied, “I doubt she cares whether you like her hair or not.” So we both laughed! Of course he also said, “when you can sing like that who cares what your hair looks like.”

I have watched every show Carry has been on & every single week of idle the year she won! I trully love her style, looks & voice! I’m a senior citizen, but would gladly adopt her in a heartbeat!

Her look was hideous! Her stylist should be fined for it. The stupid black bow looks like a giant spider crawling on her head…

I have never seen Carrie where I did not think how cute she looked. She is so darn beautiful but last night, I was so disappointed. I don’t know who dressed her and encouraged the old fashioned hairstyle but it was awful. That thing she had in her hair made it even worse! C’mon Carrie….you are so beautiful. No more matronly frocks and horrible big hair-do’s!!!

Tracy on

I thought it looked really cute. Nice change!!!

Definitely like the long hair better on her – but maybe the bob would look decent if it was styled better? It just looks frizzy and sloppy, and yeah, what’s with the funeral-tribute accessory on her head? Blech.


Carrie is just perfect. she is THE BEST~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~she totally KNOWS STYLE & CLASS…………………………………………………………………………………………………..HIGH CLASS………………
