Twitter was aflutter during the 2009 American Music Awards last night with one resounding question: No, not "Did you or didn't you catch J.Lo's dance-number tumble (ouch!)?", but "Was sassy country crooner Carrie Underwood wearing a Carol Hannah Whitfield design from her "Project Runway" Fashion Week collection during her performance of 'Cowboy Casanova'?"

So, was she or wasn't she? And who would be able to answer this question better than Carol Hannah herself, who received images of the singer's outfit from inquisitive fans: "I'm not sure whether to be happy and flattered or upset for being possibly copied — and rather poorly at that. Shorts???"

Perhaps Carrie's Carol Hannah–esque stage look was inspired by all those frequent-flier miles she racks up? Her design was recently featured in Sky magazine's blurb on New York Fashion Week:
