Carrie Underwood caught a little heat for tweeting that Caleb Johnson had won American Idol before it aired on the West Coast. 

After the East Coast feed, Carrie tweeted, "Congratulations @CalebPJohnson on becoming the new #AmericanIdol. Welcome to the family! You and @JenaAsciutto1 should feel so proud tonight!"

Not long after she followed it with another tweet. "People hating on me 'cause I spoiled the ending of AI = dumdums who should stay off their Twitter until after they watch the show... :)"

Lots of Carrie's fans came to her defense with tweets ranging from, "Tell them, Sis" to  "I'd rather know beforehand so I don't have to stay up late to watch it!"
