Tonight, second-time mom-to-be Carrie Underwood co-hosts the Country Music Awards with Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The American Idolalum has not let anything like being pregnant and incubating a whole new human stop her from performing the honors for the 11th time in a row.
Tonight will be the 52nd annual iteration of the show dubbed “Country music’s biggest night on TV.”
Personally, I’m excited to see how she will be serving her baby bump as only Carrie can.
Since announcing news of her pregnancy this summer, Underwood has been seen rocking a sequinned mini at the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on October 9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Similarly, the “Think Before He Cheats” singer glistened and glowed at the arrivals of the 2018 CMT Artists of The Year event at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on October 17, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee
That same night, she went short and glittery again while performing on stage.
Earlier that month, we spotted her super early in her pregnancy looking fab at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on September 22, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
So we know to expect some ultimate swerve from this hard-working mama!
The American Music Awards went down on Monday, October 8 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California and several of our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums performed, hosted and presented awards, and current 2nd-time mom to be Carrie Underwood won for Favorite Female Artist- Country, while new first-time mom Cardi B won Favorite Soul/R&B song for her duo with Bruno Mars, “Finesse“, and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop song for “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)“.
Jennifer Lopez hit the stage to perform her latest Sia-written song “Limitless” but before that showed off her hawt figure in a pink black belted Georges Chakra gown with fierce Jimmy Choo shoes.
We also saw Ciara make an amazing performance with musical icon Missy Elliot, amedley of hits “Level Up” and “Dose,” Ciaralooked really fab in a super cute DSquared2 mini dress and shoes accented with Pandora jewelry.
Underwood also performed, her hit song “Spinning Bottles“, after bumping it up on the red carpet in
Singer Ashlee Simpson‘s sister in law Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the show and the Ashlee and Evan E! reality TV star showed up to the carpet with hubby while wearing a sequinned blue Monique Lhuillier dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Narcisa Pheres earrings, and rings by Effy and 14 Karats.
Brand new talk show host Busy Phillipsdonned a black tuxedo suit while Heidi Klum rocked a black fringed out Julien Macdonald dress.
Jessie James Decker did Red carpet interviews in a Michael Costello jumpsuit and caught up with fellow Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Cardi B and Underwood on the carpet as shared on Instagram
I’ve missed a few red carpet coverage because…life but I was quite excited about what I saw this week at the American Music Awards, held at the Microsoft Theater on November 19, 2017 in Los Angeles, California….A lot of pink and black, but not together!
Not a mom but a blog fave, Tracee Ellis Ross killed it as host and the tribute to her mom Diana Ross who took home the Lifetime Achievement Award was all that and a bag of chips! (Do the kids still use that phrase?)
In the mix was her daughter in law Ashlee Simpson Ross, whose husband is Evan Ross, the baby boy of the Ross family. their daughter Jagger Snow stole the show! Ashlee wore a Christian Siriano dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry.
She was part of the sequins in black trim along with Clarkson who also went bold and brave in a velour and gold gown hugging her gorgeous hour glass figure. I’m loving her sleek blunt parted ombre hair too.
Kelly Rowland too did black with floral in a interesting long split Galia Lahav dress with sheer sleeves, fresh off witnessingSerena Williams‘ nuptials in New Orleans last Thursday. Her good friend Ciara went a bit S&M in an asymmetric black leather coat dress by Alexandre Vauthier haute couture and thigh high boots with wet look hair. Nicole Kidman played in safe in Black as well but looked stunning as usual in an Olivier Theyskens dress, Giuseppe Zanotti boots, a Versace bag, Fred Leighton jewels, and an Omega watch
Opting for the lighter part of the spectrum was Heidi Klum in a pink and gold slip dress with a deep v plunging neckline which is in a vintage Gianni Versace from Morphew, accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Mom-to-be country singer Jessie James Decker did a shade of pink too in a bump hugging off-the-shoulder dress, a shade of pink. Speaking of P!nk, she too went with the color of her name in a hot pink and tulle Monique Lhullier dressand her signature pink hair. Jenna Dewan-Tatum in gold and looked hot as usual in a beautiful Julien MacDonald gown, John Hardy jewels, and Giuseppe Zanotti strappy sandals.
Congrats to our alums Shakira for winning Favorite Latin artist and Carrie Underwood for winning Favorite Female Country Artist.
One of the first celebrities we ever bump watched, Christina Aquilera brought the house down in a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the Kevin Costner, Whitney Houston film, The Bodyguard singing “I Will Always Love You”, “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You” and “I’m Every Woman”. She killed it in my book! Did all the songs justice and Whitney with her voice, range and power! Wow!
Sunday night was the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California hosted by Jennifer Lopez with intermittent announcement duties by Ciara who left little to the imagination in a well constructed Balmain dress.
As usual, we tracked some of the celebrity moms that we’ve “bumpwatched” in the past to check out what and who they wore on the red carpet or on stage.
Gwen Stefani performed “Used to Love You” but before, she walked the red carpet in a stunning sheer and panel Yousef El-Jasmi dress. Carrie Underwood won the AMA for Favorite Country Female artist and sang her hit song “Heartbeat” during the show. On the red carpet she wowed in an Ellie Madi dress, Greymer shoes, Kimberley McDonald earnings and rings by Kimberly McDonald and Anne Sisteron.
There was much shine from all the sequined dresses which dominated this year’s red carpet. Paula Abdul, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato all did sequins as did our Bumpwatch alum Danica McKeller.
Shear with jewels. Shear with metallic. Sheer with lace. It seems there were many ways to present shear. The trend from last season has spilled over as we saw it on Ciara in Balmain, model Hannah Davis, who also presented an award, in Naeem Khan dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Anita Ko jewelry, and Stefani while performing in Jean Paul Gaultier.
Jennifer Lopez must have won the award for most dress changes during a show as she wore a reported 10 dressed during the course of the evening. My favorite was her red carpet dress. Wow!
