Packed with hits, theatrics, and powerhouse vocals, Carrie Underwood’s new Reflection residency opened Las Vegas’ Resorts World Theatre on Dec. 2 and brought a bit of Nashville twang to Sin City.

Here are the highlights from Reflection, which I attended courtesy of Resorts World.

Sporting a sparkly, Elton John-esque gold look complete with a black cape and sunglasses, Underwood declared: “We like to get a little dramatic out here.” Seated on a throne constructed of automobile parts, she sang “Two Black Cadillacs,” ditching the sunglasses midway through.
