Carrie Underwood’s necklace and dress seemed to steal the show at the 55th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The country music star won a Grammy award during the night, but also delivered a performance that has everyone talking the morning after.

As the singer performed her hit, "Blown Away," Underwood took the stage in a white satin gown that literally lit up.

The images were digitally projected onto her dress during the performance, creating an optical illusion that stunned viewers.

"They can do a lot of amazing things with projectors these days," Underwood said backstage. "We had a dress especially made."

"I said I should take that home and we can watch movies on it at home," Underwood added. "You wanna watch movies on my dress?"

It has been reported that the amazing gown required four people, 80 hours, and 10 yards of satin. Underwood has also revealed that she stood barefoot on an apple crate in order to achieve the exact height for the images during the dressmaking process.

"It took a lot of precision," Underwood explained to Entertainment Tonight.

On the night Underwood earned the Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance with her song "Blown Away," which is her sixth Grammy, making her one of the most successful music acts in recent times.

Earlier Underwood had wowed fans on the red carpet wearing jewelry that was valued at $31 million.

Johnathon Arnd designed the jewelry, and Underwood's necklace alone featured 381 carats of oval, pear, marquis, and round brilliant white diamonds.

Prior to this year’s event CBS issued a dress code demanding that stars "please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered."
