Top Three Moments From the CMT Awards
Last Wednesday marked one of the biggest nights in country music. Of course, it was the annual CMT Awards, where the genre’s hottest stars gathered together to recognize the best in a wide variety of categories. This included everything from Female Video of the Year to CMT Performance of the Year. While there were a lot of great moments during the telecast that had us either laughing or cheering along, certain ones ranked higher than others in our opinion. Check out three of our must-see moments from this year’s CMT Awards below:
1. Jason Derulo’s Surprise Performance
- Since this is a country music awards program, the notion of a R&B star performing seems kind of out of left field, right? Well, not this time around. Jason Derulo, who’s known for hits like “It Girl” and “The Other Side”, joined country powerhouses Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan for the remix of “This is How We Roll”. Even musical legends ZZ Top got in on the action. This performance was everything we never knew we wanted. Between Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” being thrown in the mix and the incredible dancing by all parties, we were left begging for more.
2. The Jay-Z/Solange Video Spoof
- This year’s host of the CMT Awards was none other than Kristen Bell and she certainly delivered in her opening monologue. During this part of the show, Bell, alongside Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan, decided to have some fun with the infamous Jay-Z/Solange elevator fight seen around the world. In this spoof, the country stars were seen reenacting the drama in a security video as Bell waits for the elevator to arrive. When the elevator finally does stop, Bryan turns to Bell saying, “Hey, what happens in the elevator, stays in the elevator.”
3. Kristen Bells Imitates Alan Jackson
- The elevator spoof wasn’t the only one that had all of us cracking up. We couldn’t get enough of Bell hitting the CMT Awards dressed as Alan Jackson. She even donned a fake mustache for the moment. We have to say Bell was such a fabulous host, with incredible comedic chops. Can she come back and MC this event every year?
