Carrie Underwood, the famous country singer, returned to American Idol, the place where it all began, after 13 years.

The 35-year-old worked her way to the top by winning the fourth season of the singing competition back in 2005 and went on to become the most successful American Idol winner in history.

The artist was invited to return to the TV hit show as a guest mentor for this season's top five contestants. Underwood was very excited and couldn't help but share the news with her fans and followers on Twitter.

During last Sunday's episode, the winner of seven Grammys and 17 CMT Awards described her time on the show as a 'dream,' and that it was surreal for her to be back.

The singer was walking down a flight of stairs when she fell, suffering multiple injuries in the process, including a broken wrist. She received 40 stitches and was left with small but visible scars on her face.

At the time, Underwood revealed that she was grateful for only coming out of the situation with a broken wrist and stitches and that she was ready to tackle 2018 and make it 'amazing.'
