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.


To honor Underwood' guest appearance, Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Maddie Poppe and Michael Woodward took the stage and sang some of the artists' greatest hits, such as So Small and Undo It.


But they weren't the only ones performing that night. Underwood took a trip down memory lane to experience the feeling of singing in front of an audience and a panel of judges.


The 35-year-old sang her new single, Cry Pretty, and fans didn't stay indifferent, flooding Twitter to comment on her performance. Brooke, also known as @slflreputation, proudly told the world that 'no one will ever top Carrie Underwood.'


Along with the statement, the Twitter user posted a gif of Joey, from Friends. But she wasn't the only one. @carlacampos_ confessed that she loved Underwood, while @maddkat57 claimed that she enjoyed seeing her as a mentor.


This is a triumphant return to the spotlight for Underwood, who spent many months away from the public eye after suffering an accident at her home back in November 2017.


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.'
