All eyes were on Carrie Underwood tonight at the ACM Awards as she gave her first performance since falling outside her home and receiving around 50 stitches in her face last November.

Although Carrie, 35, originally warned fans that she "might look a bit different" after her fall, she looked absolutely stunning while singing an emotional rendition of her new single, "Cry Pretty."

Though she has shared several pictures of herself on Instagram over the past week, she has not appeared publicly since her scary fall—and fans were thrilled to see her back on stage.

After Carrie finished her performance, the crowd erupted in applause and got on their feet for a standing ovation—and the country songstress had tears streaming down her face (as well as some glitter, thanks to her stage makeup).
