American Idol‘s season 4 champ Carrie Underwood returned to her alma mater Wednesday to perform her updated version of Randy Travis’s country classic “I Told You So” (with the musician himself). Carrie also updated her look, sporting a new faux bob with her frock by Tracy Reese dress. While it may have looked like Carrie had cut her hair, her rep confirms that her still-long blonde locks were merely pinned up. And she topped it all off with a big black bow! Tell us: What do you think of Carrie’s faux bob? Would you wear it? Vote in our poll below!

Carrie is my all time favorite singer, but I HATED this look on her. She is so beautiful and she was still beautiful, but the hair just did not work. :-(

Liked the fact that they tried to make it look short. But why did they put the awful black thing in her hair. If they need help to keep it in place surly they could of found something better than that.

Her hair and her dress had to go. She looked like an old lady with bad style! Even gorgeous people have to be careful about the way their present themself!

Her hair was bad, the thing on her head was worse, and that ugly blob on her dress just capped the whole thing off. A fashion disaster.

Who cares?

I can’t help think it was someone’s (misguided) attempt to make her look more mature as she sat next to Randy Travis.

Carrie Underwood is not pretty with or without a bob she needs alot of makeup just to look decent

I am SO relieved Carrie didn’t really cut her hair!! I LOVE her long hair and I was about to pass out when I saw her on Idol last night. Whew! Thank God!

That big, black bow probably hid the “this is a wig” seam or something. She looks good, no matter her hair. Anybody who is negative on this, is just plain jealous.
