AceShowbiz - Carrie Underwood was one of several artists who performed for the annual lighting ceremony of Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in New York City. For her first performance, the former "American Idol" winner belted out one of the songs from her 2020 Christmas album, "My Gift", in which she was joined by a gospel choir.
In the pre-taped performance from Nashville, which aired on NBC on Wednesday, December 1, the 38-year-old musician could be seen performing "Let There Be Peace". As for the choir, they spread across double-sided staircases which were decorated with lighted pines.
Carrie looked stunning in a red dress that featured a full skirt that fell just past her knees. To complete her glamorous look, the wife of former NHL star Mike Fisher opted to go with a pair of matching red heels. She styled her hair in a loose curl.
The "If I Didn't Love You" songstress also entertained viewers with another holiday tune, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". For her second performance, she donned a long green dress that she paired with giant earrings.
Other big names in music to perform for the 89th annual event were Brad Paisley, Harry Connick Jr., Rob Thomas and Pentatonix among others. Brad sang a rendition of the 1965 Buck Owens country classic, "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy", while Harry and his big band rolled through "(It Must've Been Ol') Santa Claus" and "Silent Night".
Mickey Guyton, Norah Jones, Aleesia Cara, Puerto Rican crooner Jose Feliciano and Latin American boy band CNCO also performed at the annual TV special.
