72657a8c-88cf-436c-9942-3d414b573d30

As usual, we scoped the Red Carpet arrivals at another award show looking for our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.

This time, we spotted quite a few at last night’s American Country Music Awards which was held at the Toshiba Plaza and TMobile Arena in Las Vegas.


Carrie Underwood stunned in a sheer nude  colored and silver embellished trim LaBourjoisie dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Harry Kotlar earrings, and rings from Djula and Hearts on Fire.

Hillary Scott took a colorful route in a pink and midnight Proenza Schouler dress accented with David Webb jewelry and Kurt Geiger shoes. It’s a welcome departure for the star who wears a lot of black. e5ea8d1c-9c6f-457f-b25b-fada8ba78991

Underwood took the stage to perform her hit pop country song with Keith Urban “The Fighter”  and a medley of other songs wearing a fringe mini dress Badgley Mischka dress, The Archives & Showroom earrings, and rings by Stefere Jewelry and Joelle. 

She also wore a Dora Abodi jacket and skirt, Fahrenheit shoes, and House of Emmanuele jewelry during the performance

She was nominated for Entertainer and Female Vocalist of the Year.

Jessie James Decker showed out in a nude shimmery Casino Royals dress by Abyss by Abby.

Scott also joined her Lady Antebellum band mates on stage to sing their song “You Look Good“. The group was nominated for Vocal Group of the Year.

There were also a couple of baby bumps on the carpet.

Singer Thomas Rhett placed his hand on the belly of his expectant wife  Lauren Gregory Atkins before later accepting his award for Song of the Year award for “Die a Happy Man” on stage. He also performed his duet with Maren Morris, “Craving You” during the night.

Clay Walker also announced that he and wife Jessica Craig are expecting my cupping her belly.

Congrats  you the expectant couples.

My fave dress wasn’t worn by a Bumpwatch alum but Lauren Alaina who looked stunning in this cornflower blue Leanne Marshall from her spring 2017 collection.

Carrie Underwood showed off her new Zena Warrior Princess Body at ACM last night

acm 67 carrie

Whatever Carrie Underwood has been eating to get those super toned legs, I’ll take two to go please!

Ma ma mia! The American Idol winner and country music superstar first wowed the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet in gold-and-silver beaded Davidson Zanine gown accented with Bavna earrings and Rene Caovilla sandals.

It was elegant but certainly hiding that she hasn’t been skipping leg day at the gym.

Her make up was flawless and her hair chin length bob swept to one side showed off her effervescent beauty but…

…when it was time to perform her hit song “Church Bells”  on stage at the event which took place on April 3, 2016 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Underwood exploded on state in a super mini silver metallic Manual Diaz single sleeved cage dress.

Revealed wrapped around her ankle and calf were the leather straps to her custom black heels meeting up to…

…these ultra toned thighs.  Pow! The naked arm showed off her guns. Move over Linda Hamilton (for you young ones, Hamilton played Sarah Conor in the Terminator movie franchise series and was famously known for her muscular frame. Google her.)

Underwood  also wore Graziela Gems earrings and Mariana Harutunian bracelet and rings. A shift to the smokey eye and dark eyeliner fit this outfit change.

You would never be able to tell just 13-months ago, she was giving birth to her first child, son Isaiah with her hockey star  husband Mike Fisher.

Wow, girl!

The Friday before, she rocked with the ACM Women of Country  charity concert with the likes of country music female stars like Miranda Lampert.

Oh and, can I have that ring? If this is her wedding ring, it  looks just like Tiffany & Co.’s  Bezzet Yellow Diamond Ring in platinum with a yellow diamond in an 18k gold bezel setting and cushioned in modified fancy intense yellow diamond, carat total weight 1.57 which you can get at  Tiffany’s for a mere $27,100.

Kelly Clarkson v. Carrie Underwood; Ryan Secrest on Most Successful American Idol Star (VIDEO)

underwood clarkson

Woop! The TODAY show put Ryan Secrest on the spot on Tuesday when one host in a panel asked him to pick which of the American Idol winners of all seasons is the most successful. He picked Carrie Underwood!

When another chimed in and mentioned Clarkson, the radio and 13-year host of the top rated TV singing competition since 2002 replied, “Kelly too, but, you know, I was just on New Year’s with Carrie, and she’s just a superstar. She really is. So I take Carrie.”

The show is in its final season and Secrest is making the rounds promoting AI’s end.

At the start of 2015, Underwood was ahead of Clarkson having sold 15 million to Clarkson’s 13 million. That is impressive given Clarkson has had a longer time to make money given she was the first AI winner while Underwood was the Season 4 winner and has released 5 albums total to Clarkson’s 7 albums.

It’s still all relative and Secrest is entitled to his opinion. The two women are both amazing, are both our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, are both friends with one another and we love them!
