86-year-old Marlene from Montclair, California, did not know she would become an internet sensation while preparing to watch Sunday Night Football.

Sunday Night Football captured the heartwarming moment, which went viral and attracted lovely comments from viewers worldwide. One person whose attention the video left an impression on was Underwood, who took to Twitter to post a sweet reaction to the beautiful clip. She wrote on Twitter:

"Marlene just made every Sunday for me for the rest of my life! Glad she's as excited as I am about @SNFonNBC! ?"


From the comment on the tweet, fans were excited following Underwood's reaction to the clip. One fan said he wished Marlene's response would be captured when she is told of the singer's reaction to her famous clip.

Another fan remarked that the clip brightened the day of almost everyone who came across it, while a third noted that singer Underwood's performance was amazing.

According to reports, the couple had not walked a red carpet together.


In the clip, which has now gone viral, Marlene could be seen sitting and tapping her knees as the intro song began. It did not take long before she grabbed her walker to stand on her feet and show-off some skills.

The 86-year-old reportedly told Sunday Night Football that watching the game is the highlight of her week. Another thing she enjoys doing is dancing to Underwood's opening theme song.


Underwood's Sunday Night Football performance is not the only thing that caught her fans' attention recently. The 37-year-old and her husband, Mike Fisher's red carpet appearance at the 2020 CMA Awards left their fans in awe.

The mother of two rocked a sparkling Yousef Al Jasmi dress that gave fans a glimpse of her gorgeous legs while her husband looked like a perfect gentleman with a classic black suit and a fancy tie.


According to reports, the couple had not walked a red carpet together since the 2019 CMA Awards nearly one year ago, explaining why their fans are excited to seem out there once again.

Underwood became a fan favorite after winning the fourth season of "American Idol" in 2005 and has gone up to become one of Hollywood's biggest stars with bumper endorsements deals and awards proving her worth.

The 37-year-old has reportedly had endorsements with brands like Target, Olay, Almay, Dick's Sporting Goods. She has also been the face and voice of Sunday Night Football on NBC since 2013. With an estimated net worth of $200 million and record sales, Underwood is undoubtedly among the most accomplished artists in Hollywood.
