(Taste of Country) - Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert debuted the duet that everyone’s been talking about, ‘Something Bad,’ off of Lambert’s forthcoming album ‘Platinum,’ at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards.
Even though the ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ singer admitted to being nervous about performing with Underwood, she didn’t show any nerves at all. Both women looked, and acted, utterly fearless and fierce.
With dramatic smokey-eyed makeup, lots of leather, embellishments, and a whole lot of leg being bared, the two superstars showed exactly what happens when two country women join forces.
Not only did they hit every note, they had the audience in the palm of their (manicured) hands from the very first notes. Huge flames flickered and flared behind Lambert and Underwood throughout ‘Something Bad,’ and wind machines whipped their hair around, making the complete performance totally dramatic and utterly captivating.
As Lambert explained earlier, “It’s been too long since two girls in our genre have come together like that, especially on a song that’s kind of in your face.”
It was in your face in the very best way, and the type of performance that women all over will pump their fists to again and again.
