John Legend took the stage at the 2014 CMT Music Awards on June 4 to shake things up by singing his huge hit ballad, ‘All Of Me’, along with country stars Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes.
Just because the CMT Music Awards are primarily a country event, that doesn’t mean that not all amazing music is welcome! John Legend, 35, hit the Bridgestone Arena stage in Nashville, Tennessee, on June 4 to sing his enormously popular ballad, “All Of Me,” which was written about his wife, Chrissy Teigen. Read on for all the details from his performance!
John Legend’s Performance Of ‘All Of Me’ At The CMT Music Awards With Jennifer Nettles & Hunter Hayes
John Legend wasn’t alone on that stage — he also sang with country stars Jennifer Nettles, 39, and Hunter Hayes, 22. While John usually sings this song while also playing on the piano, he kept it simple this time by sticking to sharing lead vocals with Jennifer. Hunter joined them on acoustic guitar, occasionally chiming in.
The performance was backed by low-key instrumentals, which served to highlight their amazing voices. It’s not really surprising that these two complemented each other so well, though — separately, their voices are totally stunning and are able to evoke so much emotion! After their performance, the crowd went totally wild.
Jennifer and John apparently decided to coordinate their outfits; she wore a fantastically flattering leather dress by Katharine Kidd which flared at the knee, and John wore a leather jacket, a simple graphic tee, and leather pants. Hunter, odd man out but still looking super handsome, wore a short-sleeved black oxford shirt — unbuttoned until the second or third button — and jeans.

John released “All Of Me” on August 12, 2013, and while it certainly had its day in the sun when it was released, it hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on May 16, 2014. Recently, John performed “All Of Me” at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, as well as in Florence, Italy on May 24 at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding reception on an enormous, marble, two-of-a-kind piano. No big deal or anything.
