Carrie Underwood Takes On Coldplay & Five Other Stellar Artists
In case you missed it, Carrie Underwood performed on “VH1 Unplugged: Carrie Underwood” last night and it’s no surprise we were ‘blown away.’ The strong vocalist impressed us as she sang some of her songs from her latest album Blown Away. She also did a version of Coldplay’s “Fix You.” Watch the cover below.
This is just one of the many covers Carrie Underwood has done throughout her career since winning “American Idol.” We decided to countdown the 5-time Grammy winner’s top 5 covers she’s done.
“Alone” by Heart is just one of the many that Carrie blew us away. She first sang it on “American Idol” which led to Simon Cowell to say he predicted she would win the competition and sell more records than any previous ‘Idol’ winner… and she did. She sang it again at an iHeartRadio concert to remind us why she is the ‘American Idol.’
“Walk This Way” by Aerosmith is just one of the other most memorable performances Carrie has put on. This time, she had help from lead singer of Aerosmith, Steven Tyler. Coincidentally, he was one of the former judges on “American Idol. The two belt it out hard to this classic rock anthem.
“I Will Always Love You” is originally written by Dolly Parton, but was rerecorded and made famous by Whitney Houston. Carrie sang the song with elegance and grace as Dolly Parton even joined along to help sing along. The two delivered a powerful duet covering this popular ballad. We will always love this cover.
“Umbrella” by Rihanna was not only hot on the charts, but covered by many artists including Carrie. The performance was part of a set list when she toured with Keith Urban. The two added a country vibe to the song and we’d be glad to join in under their umbrella as long as they kept singing!
“How Great Thou Art” is the last one to complete our list and we’ve got to save the best for last! Elvis Presley’s rendition is one of the most famous covers of this song and we’re sure the “King of Rock & Roll” would be proud by her version. The video racked up nearly 15 million views on YouTube.
