The singer wowed the crowd with her aerial work.
The pre-recorded performance was filmed at the Resorts World Theatre, home of Underwood's Las Vegas residency, while the singer herself was at the Nashville, Tennessee, ceremony.
Underwood, CMT's most decorated artist of all time, sported a purple jumpsuit with a lengthy train as she belted out her latest single. She ended things on a high note, joining her dancers in an aerial performance as she delivered the last lines of her emotional song.
The singer scored two nominations this year. She already took home the Collaborative Video of the Year award for "If I Didn't Love You," her track with Jason Aldean. The pair's video is also nominated in the Video of the Year category.
"Premiering 'Ghost Story' on the GRAMMYs, I mean, how could it get any bigger than that?" Underwood told ET. "So, I was very nervous, but very excited."
The same night, Underwood took home a GRAMMY in the Best Roots Gospel Album category for her album, My Savior.
"It means so much," she said of her big win. "I feel like I’ve just been super emotional all night, but I love this album so much, and it’s something that I’ve just always wanted to make, and I got to finally."
"I really did it very selfishly, because I just wanted to sing these songs and kind of get to live in that space for a little while," she added. "The fact that it’s resonated with people, it just means the world to me."
