Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley definitely know how to make a crowd laugh. Apparently, even in the country world, Miley twerking is entertaining. At the CMA Awards, Brad even took the opportunity to thank Taylor Swift for ‘never once humping a teddy bear!’
No one expected the 47th Annual Country Music Association Awards to open with twerking from hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley and the cast of Duck Dynasty — but that’s just what we got at the Nov. 6 show!
Miley Cyrus Gets Dissed At CMA Awards
It’s no secret that this year has been all about Miley Cyrus twerking, so naturally when Brad said he “twerked” his back during their opening monologue, Carrie let him know that wasn’t the right use of the term.
“Twerking is… well, have you ever been to a Luke Bryan concert?” she asked him, causing a howl of laughter. He immediately dissed Miley, saying, “I thought those were mini-seizures.” Jeez, take that Miley!
And that wasn’t even half of it! Brad then turned his attention to Taylor Swift who looked stunning in the front row. While she’s used to getting picked on for her own personal life, this time she was praised for her behavior!
“Taylor, you’ve grown up right before our very eyes,” Brad said to her. “And I want to thank you from a grateful industry, for never once humping a teddybear or gyrating with Beetle Juice. I really appreciate it. I know that’s not easy.”
It was absolutely hilarious and a TOTAL diss to Miley. Taylor maturely nodded her head, then blew a kiss at the hosts! Then Carrie added in another Miley comment, referencing her super sexual “Wrecking Ball” music video.
While Miley and Robin Thicke‘s performance is obviously one of the most talked about topics in pop culture, the other is Duck Dynasty. While we wouldn’t think to combine them, Carrie and Brad did just that. “Everybody get up,” Carrie started, singing Robin’s part — and a white sheet appeared behind them, just like in the “Blurred Lines” video! They country-ized the lyrics a bit, changing the chorus from “Good girl, I know you want it” to “Country girl, I know you hunt it.” They were even joined on stage by the cast of Duck Dynasty, who twerked on each other! It was absolutely genius.
Later on in the show, Brad even came out in a Robin-Thicke-Beetle-Juice-esque outfit, which Carrie made fun of him for. He didn’t get her a foam finger exactly, but instead brought out a foam predator, representing the Nashville Predators, the hockey team her husband Mike Fisher plays for. So creative!
Carrie & Brad Poke Fun At Kanye West, Jonas Brothers & Julianne Hough
These two judges were completely hilarious with their entire opening, and it wasn’t all about Miley.
In their own version of the song,”Why Can’t We Be Friends,” Brad and Carrie mocked everyone who had so-called feuds in the industry, and even created some of their own!
“Kanye hates Kimmel, and the Jonas Brothers aren’t getting along. Sinead hates Miley, and Tom Petty hates us all,” Brad sang! Whoa! They even pinned Darius Rucker against Julianne Hough — referencing her controversial Halloween costume?
Carrie and Brad were so daring with diss after diss — but we need to know what you thought, HollywoodLifers! Was their monologue too harsh or completely hilarious? Let us know!
