Carrie Underwood Worms Her Way Onto 'Sesame Street'
Filed under: In The News
Carrie Underwood will appear on "Sesame Street" -- as a worm.
But that's not a bad thing. See, the "American Idol" winner and country music superstar has a muppet of her very own: Carrie Underworm. Underwood performed "Worm Anthem," an original song for the kids show, in which she sings about being "proud to be a worm."
Here is a video preview, in which Carrie Underworm is introduced by none other than NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon.
But some of Underwood's fans seem to feel her appearance is a tad, well, slimy.
"Lee," a reader of the country music blog The Boot, writes, "Uh, not too sure how I feel 'bout that one ... Somethin' 'bout it just don't seem quite right." However, "Lee" admits to not being a regular "Sesame Street" viewer. Another reader, Jessie, thinks the sketch is, "Kind of weird ... but funny."
The real-life, human version of Carrie Underwood performed the national anthem at Super Bowl XLIV.
Carrie Underworm will make her "Sesame Street" debut Feb. 11, with additional appearances on March 17, April 8 and April 26, according to The Boot.
