Underwood performed the Paul McCartney-penned hit as part of a special tribute celebrating the 50th anniversary of some of the most impacting television moments in history, including President John F. Kennedy's assassination and the debut of the Beatles on the "Ed Sullivan Show."
Social media response was mixed; some viewers felt Underwood did the classic proud, others bluntly stated that she butchered it. However, Underwood likely didn't care much about her naysayers -- after all, she had the blessing of the only person who really mattered.
That is, the person who actually wrote the song.
