Did Nick Jonas Save Carrie Underwood’s Life?

Pop Star Jokes About "Heroically" Jumping Into Action at American Music Awards

I had no idea Carrie Underwood’s life was in danger Sunday night (Nov. 22) at the American Music Awards. I mean, one minute, she was just sitting there enjoying Coldplay’s “Adventure of a Lifetime” just like the rest of us. The next minute, Nick Jonas was saving her life.

At least, that’s the way Jonas is telling the story.

The day after the awards show, he went to social media to share his account of the near miss.

“We almost lost one of the good ones last night at the AMAs. During Coldplay’s performance these giant light-up balls were thrown in the audience,” he explained.


“The one in my hands was heroically snatched out of the air by yours truly,” Jonas said of the picture that accompanied his tweet, “just before it had the chance to hit the lovely Carrie Underwood in the head. You’re welcome Carrie. You’re welcome world. #longlivecarrie#countrymusiclives#urwelcome”

Cool story, bro.

Underwood was thankful, obviously. And she tweeted her attitude of gratitude right after the danger had passed.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
