As she sang "Blown Away" and " Two Black Cadillacs" various images flashed on her dress.
"They can do a lot of amazing things with projectors these days," she said backstage, holding her trophy for best country solo performance. "We had a dress especially made. I said I should take that home and we can watch movies on it."
Underwood said she had to stand in a specific spot on the Staples Center stage to make it work.
"It took a lot of precision," she said.
KEEP ON BIEBVIN'
Justin Bieber can't catch a break.
Not only was the superstar singer not nominated for a Grammy, but a Ustream session that Bieber launched at the same time as the ceremony Sunday to answer questions from fans crashed because it was overloaded. The technical snafu immediately began trending on Twitter, inspiring such popular hashtags as (hash)ThankYouForTryingJustin and (hash)JustinUseRedTube.
Bieber tweeted to fans that "livestream is over capacity it not letting me in the room." He apparently couldn't overcome the blunder and later promised to upload a video.
RICK ROSS WORKS IT
Rick Ross is a businessman as much as he is a rapper.
"There's a lot of networking to be done here," he said on the red carpet at Sunday's Grammy Awards, adding he had already done "three or four deals."
Ross likes how his genre has taken what he sees as its rightful place at the annual ceremony.
"I feel like hip hop is most definitely more present at the Grammys," he said, noting the presence of what he called such "underground legends" as Nas.

ADELE: NO TIME TO BE COOL
Adele says she's been so busy singing nursery rhymes to her new baby son that "I don't really remember what's cool and what's not."
Still, she was cool enough to add another Grammy to last year's six-award sweep when she won Sunday night for pop vocal performance for "Set Fire to the Rain (Live)."
That may have to hold her for a while.
"I'm not very far along at all," Adele confessed backstage at the Grammy Awards. "I've been out of the loop really."
