If you watch the part of the screen where Faith is when Carrie Underwood's name is announced, you can see where she yells "WHAT?!" and then walks off. Guess she didn't think the cameras were on her anymore. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

The fact that she does it to the camera, though, makes me wonder if she's joking?

I was surprised and pretty disappointed - I've always liked Faith because, to me, she seemed like a wonderful *regular* person - good mom, good wife, just nice person. I really do hope that it was a joke, but it definitely didn't look that way to me.

She did it right into the camera! It was a joke. She's still a Mississippi girl, y'all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I'm skeptical it was a joke. I mean, if so, why walk off? Just because it was done in the direction of the camera doesn't mean anything other than maybe she was addressing it to someone who was next to the cameraman. Where was her husband at? Was he backstage with her?

I saw that earlier this morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Didn't look like a joke to me ... she started to raise her arms up like she totally EXPECTED them to call her name, and then her whole demeanor changed in an instant. If it were a joke, she wouldn't have stormed off.

Aw! I love Carrie! I'm so glad she won!!<br><br>
I'm surpised at Faith's reaction. I seriously doubt it was a joke.

I guess regular people screw up sometimes. She REALLY has a mess to clean up now. Acting totally gracious was part of her public persona. She'll have to explain this to her fans. It is pretty funny though.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I heard reports it's a joke referencing the Kanye West tantrum at the EMVAs last week. I think it's also a bit of a running joke with her as she reacted the same way another time when she lost out to her husband.

i don't know, you gotta figure faith hill has been up for a few awards, right? she knows how it works...it's pretty clear to me that it's a joke. that's way too rookie of a move for someone as seasoned as she is. however it could be argued that the 'rookie' part was thinking everyone would know it's a joke and not be misinterpreted as real! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I don't think it was a joke.<br><br>
Even if it was, it was a very classless one. Can you imagine how that made Carrie Underwood feel? It's one thing to joke around with your own husband, it's another to do so with a new artist getting her first big award. She, effectively, turned "Carrie Underwood's first big award" into "Faith Hill's screw-up, big joke". She tainted Carrie's big moment. Classless, I don't care who you are or what the reason.
