Carrie Underwood: Connects with Elton, Paul and more at the Emmys

by Scott Hanson

Looks like Carrie Underwood was the bell of the ball at last night’s (Sunday) Emmy Awards.

On the red carpet, she interviewed with Amy Poehler and met Elton John backstage. She also left with a cool souvenir from Paul McCartney following her performance of "Yesterday" on the show. She tweeted, “The coolest thing about singing ‘Yesterday’ on the #Emmys is the sweet letter I got from @PaulMcCartney giving me his blessing to sing it!”

She wrapped the night watching Keifer Sutherland, Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, tweeting, “And finally…the after-afterparty! Which consists of me watching Young Guns alone in my room! #CinderellaHasLeftTheBall”

Carrie moves to New York next week to begin rehearsals for the Sound of Music, airing live December 5th on NBC.
