All eyes and ears were glued on country music megastar Carrie Underwood during her fierce performance at The 50th annual CMA Awards, which took place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Nov. 2.

Taking the stage in a sexy, white-and-black ensemble complete with a tie and a pair of leather biker gloves, the blonde-haired bombshell belted out her latest hit, “Dirty Laundry,” from her CMA-nominated album “Storyteller.”

No, she wasn’t singing about the many eye-popping wardrobe changes she planned on making throughout the night. Instead, she sang unapologetically about airing out the tainted clothing of an unfaithful man.

Standing atop of scaffolding, Carrie made her way down a staircase and was met by a whole host of badass females jamming out on instruments. Nearing the end of the performance sparks shot out of machines amid the red-lit stage.

And, boy was it hot.

Aside from her killer performance, Carrie did the honors of co-hosting the star-studded event with Brad Paisley for the ninth year in a row. She also received her first-ever bid for the highly coveted CMA entertainer of the year award. That’s not all though. The flawless singer also earned nods for female vocalist of the year and musical event of the year for “The Fighter,” her duet with Keith Urban.
