Carrie Underwood's American Idol appearance affected by 'sad' Covid news

Slated to be one of the night’s headliners on the stage that first made her a star, host Ryan Seacrest shared that it was a potential Covid scare that kept her away.

After introducing the incredible line-up of performers for the night, he explained: “There was a Covid exposure within Carrie Underwood’s group, so following protocol, she’s unable to perform tonight. Sad.” 

Others took to social media to express their thoughts, with one saying: “Hopefully she is feeling well and didn’t get Covid!” and another adding: “Now I’m bummed right now that I found out that @carrieunderwood won’t be performing at the American Idol finale and that her team has covid exposure, I wish them a speedy recovery, this is news I wasn’t expecting.”

The songstress shared a sentimental tribute to her fans earlier this week in honor of her final show. They are not to fret, though, as she’s leaving her residency to go on her long-awaited Denim and Rhinestones tour.
