Carrie Underwood made a surprise appearance at the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) concert in Nashville last night (5/17), singing a special rendition of “Happy Birthday” to band members Danny Wood and Jordan Knight.
Carrie tweeted after her appearance, “Um…did I just sing happy birthday to @dannywood and @jordanknight on stage with the NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK?!?! Yup!”
Aside from her surprise onstage serenade and general fangirling over NKOTB, Carrie also ran into an old friend from her American Idol days while backstage at the Bridgestone Arena.
Underwood shared a picture of her with former Idol judge Paula Abdul who is currently touring with NKOTB, saying, “Well, look who I ran into backstage at #TheTotalPackage Tour! So cool to watch her do her thing!”
Underwood also shared her love for the night’s other performer, Boyz II Men, posting a video of their performance of “On Bended Knee.” She said in the caption, “And I’m instantly back in 6th grade…right @jordanvandiver ? Ha ha!”
The night also included a surprise guest appearance by Big and Rich, who caught up with NKOTB backstage.
