Carrie Underwood Adds Song & Sizzle to American Idol finale

Carrie Underwood Adds Song

Carrie Underwood sizzled in a short sequined dress on the American Idol red carpet for their 2011 season finale in the City of Angels on May 25th, 2011, in the Nokia Theater

The singer wore her blond tresses in an updo, showing off a peaches-and-cream complexion and statement earrings which matched her outfit.

Makeup was kept to soft pinks and browns, going with the easy flow of the dress. The Idol alum chose a sequined Lorena Sarbu which flaunted seriously good taste and a tanned pair of stems.

We think she's secretly trying to compete with Kate Middleton, but we're not complaining. :)

And how to accessorize the uber-short number? With a brown clutch bag, glittery platform heels, and her signature smile.

Carrie performed her megahit "Before He Cheats" with contestant Lauren Alaina. She sported a shoulder-baring sequin top in silver which matched a pair of shoulder-duster earrings. White short shorts and high heels made for a perfect look.

If these two outfits are anything to go by, we're in for a hot summer
