Carrie Underwood made her highly anticipated comeback at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, finally revealing her so-called “new” face for the first time since a horrible accident left her with more than 40 stitches on her face.
Underwood delivered an emotional performance of her new single “Cry Pretty,” which earned her a huge standing ovation.
However, fans who anxiously waited to see how different Underwood looked were left stunned when they finally got to see her face.
“I see absolutely nothing wrong with Carrie Underwood’s face,” one user tweeted. “Gorgeous!”
We tend to agree.
“Am I the only one that didn’t notice a change in Carrie Underwood’s face?” another user asked.
Nope. We thought she looked amazing too.
I see absolutely nothing wrong with Carrie Underwood’s face. Gorgeous! #ACMawards

One Twitter user went a step further, writing: “If having 40-50 stitches in my face makes me look and sound like Carrie Underwood did tonight, somebody push me down the stairs.”
Please don’t try that at home, people.
Last week, Underwood updated her fans on her condition following her horrible accident, saying her wrist has almost healed and her face “has been healing pretty nicely.” That’s definitely great to hear.
Fox News has more information on Underwood’s epic comeback:
However, with all the attention on Underwood’s physical appearance, it’s easy to forget what she looks like on the inside.
Underwood previously revealed there are a few things that are much more important to her than a singing career: being a wife and mother and her relationship with Jesus Christ.
“At the end of the day everything that I’m doing now is going to fade, but I’m going to be a mom until the day I die, so that’s more important. In however many years, I don’t know how many it’ll take, but people will be like, ‘Oh, yeah, I remember that name’. That’s just the way any job is,” she said in a past interview. “But I’ll be a mom and a wife forever, so that definitely takes precedence over everything else.”
