This year, the CMT Music Awards were totally off the hook! From Pitbull’s huge opening act to Luke Bryan’s sizzling performance and all of the awesome moments in between, we didn’t want the night to end. Click though to see all of the best moments from one of the biggest nights in country music!
Okay, the 2016 CMT Music Awards were completely amazing. Luckily, we’ve rounded up all of the greatest moments from tonight to help you relive it! Check out the gallery here to see can’t-miss snapshots of performances and appearances from country icons Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean and more!
First, we were treated to cameos from Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell in the pretaped opening, plus an appearance from Chewbacca Mom! Hilarious. The show didn’t truly open, though, until Pitbull, Cassadee Pope, and Leona Lewis and stormed the stage to totally slay a performance of Pitbull’s song “Messin’ Around”. So good!
Carrie Underwood was all smiles as she took home the award for Female Video of the Year for her hit “Smoke Break”, then Fifth Harmony and Cam brought the house down with the ultimate jam, “Work From Home”. Nothing like bringing a little pop magic to a country music awards show!
Let’s not forget about Carrie Underwood’s explosive performance of “Church Bells” (that sexy lace bodysuit! The smoke machine! Her flawless voice!) — she’s just iconic. Of course, she won again shortly after for CMT Performance of the Year. What a queen! Shortly after, Blake Shelton brought the crowd to their feet with his sultry hit “Doing It to Country Songs”. He continued to ride the success wave by winning for CMT Social Superstar!
