Luke and Blake hit the stage to host the 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards on April 7, and they were absolutely hilarious! Read on to find out what made them the ultimate hosts!
Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan did not disappoint. The country music stars hosted the ACMs live on CBS from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and they had me laughing nonstop. I’ve watched the ACMs for years and this was by far the best yet!
Luke Bryan & Blake Shelton Are The Best ACM Hosts Ever
This was Blake’s third time hosting the ACMs and Luke’s first. Plus, this was Luke’s first time to host a live TV event. But I’ll tell you one thing, their chemistry was off the charts! Luke, 36, was so funny and kept coming at Blake, 36, with jabs throughout the show.
Luke & Blake’s Best Hosting Moments
My favorite moment was when they made fun of the ban against sideboob during the 2013 Grammys. They said that CBS had decided to ban back fat, beer belly’s and butt cracks from the ACMs this year! Then Luke reached over and rubbed Blake’s belly and it made The Voice host blush!
My second favorite moment was when Luke joked about the ABC show Nashville. Luke said that the show was about a hot, young, country star and a jealous, washed up, country artist. Then he laughed and said: “kinda like us!” Meaning that Blake is the old guy but he totally laughed it off. But the funny thing is, they’re the same age!
Leading up to the big event, Blake said that he gave Luke some good advice before hosting.
“I would tell him to be prepared for the onslaught of hatred that will come from Taylor Swift’s fan base if you say any sort of a joke or if she’s any part of a punch line in the monologue,” Blake said. “By the way, you’re getting all those jokes this year.”
