Leave it to the CMTs to have the most fun with Jay Z and Solange’s now-infamous brawl! As host Kristen Bell waited for an elevator to the stage, we got a peek at the the chaos that was going down inside!
Jay Z and Solange Knowles‘ shocking elevator fight after the Met Gala in May has already been fodder for Saturday Night Live, and on June 4, the CMT Music Awards became the next show to poke fun at the brawl with the help of Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan.
CMT Awards Mock Jay Z & Solange
In host Kristen Bell‘s opening skit — which was hilarious all the way through — the actress was making her way to the CMT Awards stage when she approached an elevator, and well, you can guess what happened next.
The camera cut to a security feed from inside the elevator, where Luke and Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line were shown in the midst of a pushing fight! We don’t know who was supposed to be playing Solange (our bet’s on Luke), but either way it was a hilarious reference to that now-infamous fight.
It was just subtle enough, and wasn’t mean in any way — in other words, it was perfect.
Who ever would have guessed that the CMTs would be so hilarious!
Luke Bryan: Country Music’s Jokester
Though we should’ve predicted that Luke Bryan would be involved in some sort of antics. As host of the ACMs in April, country’s sexiest man tossed out joke after joke with co-host Blake Shelton, from aping Ellen DeGeneres‘ Oscars selfie to dissing Justin Bieber.
We’re just psyched to see that Florida Georgia Line can do more than just make amazing country hits.
So HollywoodLifers, what did you think of the CMTs mocking Jay Z and Solange? Do you think those two will be mad? Let us know!
