Now, that’s how you open an awards show! Pitbull, Cassadee Pope and Leona Lewis made music magic at the CMT Music Awards and we will be talking about their performance of ‘Messin’ Around’ for quite a while!
The Voice winner Cassadee Pope, pop singer Leona Lewis and Mr. Worldwide — AKA Pitbull — lit it up at the 2016 CMT Music Awards on June 8! They combined their talents to perform Pitbull’s new single “Messin’ Around”, kicking off the medley of amazing collaborations we’re going to see tonight. Read on for performance details!
Pitbull & Co. kicked off the show with the first in-house performance of the evening, and it was so hot! He sounded amazing and was backed by the equally incredible Leona and Cassadee, plus a huge group of sexy dancers. The crowd went absolutely wild as Leona and Cass added a country twist to Pitbull’s poppy single, and no one even missed Enrique Iglesias, who typically sings the part of the song that the ladies took over. Pitbull looked sleek in a white and pastel blue suit, while Leona stunned in a black, low-cut suit and choker. Everyone was basically fire!
Pitbull has become an awards show mainstay, and performed earlier this year at the 2016 iHeart Radio Music Awards. He brought the party with his hit “Fireball”, dazzling everyone with sexy dancers and massive displays of fire. We have to say that this mashup with Cassadee and Leona may just beat that, though!
