Carrie Underwood told Jimmy Fallon that a “viral thing” forced her to cancel two shows in the U.K. last week.

“I don’t cancel shows, like, I will drag myself onto the stage and perform if I have the flu or whatever,” Underwood said Thursday night on “The Tonight Show” on NBC. (RELATED: Carrie Underwood Drops Behind-The-Scenes Clip For New ‘Sunday Night Football’ Song [VIDEO])


“In the U.K. we had to cancel a couple shows,” the country star continued. “Basically I got a viral thing and I woke up, I had vertigo and I could not stand up. And it was crazy. I ended up in a German hospital for three days.”

Underwood joked with Fallon that the hospital staff was great, but she couldn’t understand anything they were saying.

“They were so sweet and so nice and we were in our rooms trying to learn German, trying to communicate,” Underwood explained. “I didn’t learn anything. I learned one thing: kein fleisch, bitte,” which means, “no meat, please.”

“I don’t eat meat, so that’s all I learned,” she added. “That’s all I got. I’m probably butchering it. I’m sorry to all.”

She had been schedule to appear the Long Road Festival in Leicestershire and at BBC Radio 2 Live in London.

“We’ve just heard that Carrie is unable to play this weekend due to illness, and our primary concern is her speedy recovery,” Long Road’s Twitter account wrote. “We know you’ll have questions, and we promise to come back to you as soon as we can.”

Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher announced in August they are expecting their second child.
