The country superstar demanded viewers’ attention as she brought a taste of her wildly successful Denim & Rhinestones tour to the AMAs’ stage.
The powerhouse vocalist launched her performance from the back of the Microsoft Theater in a sphere high above the audience before she made her way to the stage and floated down unto the stage, wearing a hot pink and blue bodysuit.
“Yes, I’m one of those crazy angels / Tilted halo with a neon shine / Call me one of those crazy angels / Even good girls wanna have a good time / Heaven knows I’m flying low tonight,” Underwood sang on the chorus.

“Crazy Angels” appears on Underwood’s latest record, Denim & Rhinestones, which arrived on June 10, 2022, via Capitol Records Nashville. The 12 track album also features the Oklahoma native’s latest single “Hate My Heart,” the project’s lead single “Ghost Story,” as well as fan-favorite tracks such as “Pink Champagne,” “Crazy Angels,” and “Velvet Heartbreak.”
“We cover a lot of ground on this album,” Underwood previously shared in a press release. ”We have a lot of songs that have a bit of a ‘throwback’ feel, but they sound super fresh. I grew up listening to so many different kinds of music and that is extremely evident in this body of work.”
“These are musical influences that are all in me and work their way out, and I just decided this time not to get in their way,” the hitmaker added. “I think this whole album ended up being a big reflection of me as a person and as an artist.”
Denim & Rhinestones is the follow-up to 2018’s Cry Pretty. Since then, Underwood also released a Christmas album, My Gift, in 2020, and a Gospel album, My Savior, in 2021.
Carrie Underwood is currently in the midst of her wildly successful Denim & Rhinestones tour, which kicked off on Saturday, October 15 in Greenville, South Carolina, and currently runs through March 17 in Seattle, Washington.
Produced by AEG Presents, the 43-city trek features Jimmie Allen and is scheduled to run through March 17, 2023.
The Oklahoma native will donate $1 from each ticket sold to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (t2t.org), which has been helping America’s heroes since 9/11 by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and by building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. The Foundation is also committed to eradicating veteran homelessness and aiding the victims of major U.S. disasters.
