Carrie Underwood Reunites With Former “Idol” Judge In Nashville

Tonight in Nashville, 1980s and 1990s music fans packed the Bridgestone Arena for The Total Package Tour, starring NKOTB, Boyz II Men, and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul. Included in those throwback teeny boppers was Carrie Underwood, an eighties baby with stellar musical taste.

Not only did Underwood believe that NKTOB brought “the right stuff” to “Smashville,” but she was able to reunite with one of the judges who gave her constructive comments and helped her work her way toward a Season 4 American Idol victory.

In a true full circle, turning tables moment, Underwood was in the crowd watching Abdul perform for the applause, approval and entertainment of onlookers. What a surreal moment for each of these successful ladies to see one another and realize how far they each have come!
