Carrie Underwood lit up the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night when she took the stage to sing her hit “Blown Away” wearing a breathtaking platinum Theia gown.

As her performance began, the 29-year-old country cutie stood completely still on stage, looking slightly stiff as she began to sing. However, the lights then dimmed and as she belted out the emotional lyrics of the song, her dress stole the spotlight by completely illuminating.

The dress – which projected patterns of stars and flowers – was created with 10 yards of duchess satin and 100 yards of tulle and crinoline to support the skirt. Inspired by the Freedom Tower in New York City, it took a team of four over 80 hours to make.

This isn’t the first time the “American Idol” champ’s stage costume has electrified audiences: Underwood wore a similar dress throughout her Play On tour in 2010 when she performed her hit “Change.”

Sunday was a big night for the songbird, who scooped up a Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance and also set a red carpet record by donning a $31 million Jonathon Arndt necklace. The blinding piece of jewelry featured 381 carats of oval, pear, marquis, and round brilliant white diamonds.

It’s safe to say we were “Blown Away” by Underwood’s attention-grabbing looks at the Grammys.
