Carrie Underwood wins CMA’s female vocalist of the year award

American Idol 4 winner Carrie Underwood was named the Female Vocalist of the Year last night at the Country Music Awards. Accepting the award, she said she’d watched the ceremony on TV two years ago, and receiving the award made last night “the best night of my life.”

But the part where Carrie Underwood cries and thanks everyone from fans to God isn’t the best part. No, it’s when her win is actually announced, and fellow nominee Faith Hill flips out, screaming “What?”, throwing her hands up in disgust, and storming off the stage.

Faith Hill now insists her reaction to Carrie’s win was a joke, saying in a statement, “The idea that I would act disrespectful towards a fellow musician is unimaginable to me. For this to become a focus of attention given the talent gathered is utterly ridiculous. Carrie is a talented and deserving Female Vocalist of The Year.”
