Her recent breakout into country music brought her to the April 18 Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, where she performed her debut single “Giddy On Up.”

Bundy is a fantastic singer, as proven by her Tony Award nominated performance as Elle Woods in the “Legally Blonde” musical. Her ACM performance, however, was heavy on the stunts and low on the vocals. It was reminiscent of Britney Spears’ hey-day, full of complicated choreography and back-up dancers being shot out of the floor like cannon balls.

By the end of the performance, Bundy could barely breathe, much less sing! She panted her way through a back-flip before wheezing out the last few words of the song. Of course, Britney can’t sing and dance at the same time, either … but then again, Britney isn’t looking to perform at the Grand Ole Opry any time soon.
