The 'American Idol' champion joins frontman Mick Jagger for a duet on the band's 1974 hit 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll'.
Country music star Carrie Underwood dropped by The Rolling Stones' Toronto concert Saturday night to sing in a duet with frontman Mick Jagger the classic Stones single "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll". The 30-year-old singer was apparently celebrating the eighth anniversary of her "American Idol win that night and she felt really fortunate to have spent it performing with the legendary band.
"8 years ago today, I won @AmericanIdol and tonight, I sang with the @RollingStones! Wow, so much has happened! #Thankful," Underwood tweeted following her performance with the Stones at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. "Holy cow! I walked off stage and said, 'What just happened?!' Still can't believe it! :)," the "Two Black Cadillacs" singer wrote.
Wearing a black ensemble of a Rolling Stones t-shirt with a USA-flag filled-in lips logo in front and union jack on the back, skinny pants and stiletto boots, Underwood did her usual live performance stance of raising her arm with a pointed finger. As guitarist Keith Richards did his riffs on centerstage, she and Jagger got into a hip-bump close to the stands.
With the Toronto concert duet, Underwood now joins the list of other top acts who have appeared on the Stones' "50 & Counting" North America tour. Katy Perry joined their Las Vegas concert two weeks ago and prior to that Gwen Stefani and Tom Waits guested on their L.A. and Oakland shows, respectively.
