Alanis Morissette may have discovered the Fountain of Youth.
The Grammy winner, who brought mourners to tears with her rendition of Rest at Lisa Marie Presley’s funeral, looked much younger than her 48 years in a curve hugging sexy sheer black poet’s blouse and a full length velvet skirt at the CMT Awards Sunday in Austin, Texas.
The hitmaker’s chestnut brown hair was styled in loose curls that hung around her face and shoulders.
Her makeup looked natural under the bright cameras, highlighting the Ironic artist’s flawless complexion.
Later in the evening, the icon donned a butt-kicking pair of black leather pants, a white T-shirt and a long sparkly coat as she joined four other artists to belt out a powerful rendition of the Canadian rocker’s breakout hit, You Oughta Know.

The collaboration with Lainey Wilson, 30, Ingrid Andress, 31, Madeline Edwards, 29, and Morgan Wade, 28, served to mark the 10th anniversary of CMT’s Next Women in Country campaign.
CMT launched the program in 2013 to support and promote female artists in the male-dominated field of country music.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the chart topper said she was happy to pitch in.
‘Anytime I can support women expressing themselves, and feeling safe in a world that isn’t always the safest,’ she said.
‘Every industry, in general, is seen through the male lens, so to have a female lens be presented as a gang is really… I’ll show up!’
‘All the women are amazing. I’m like a kid in a candy store.’
Each of Alanis’ onstage collaborators had been featured previously in the franchise.
Madeline and Morgan were part of the class of 2022, while Ingrid and Lainey were part of the class of 2019.

The song started out with each of the women singing a line from the 1995 hit, which still resonated with the audience nearly 30 years after it was released.
Women in the audience stood up, sang along and pumped their fists to the beat.
About half-way through the song, controlled flames appeared behind the singers.
Ingrid Andress wrote about the experience sharing a photo from the performance in Instagram writing, ‘If u are wondering why this is the happiest you’ve ever seen me… u oughta know this was a peak moment for me.’
‘Thank you @alanis,’ she continued, ‘for sharing your wisdom and platform w girls who wanna be just like you.’
