CMAs 2010 Performances

Your hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley opened the night with Songs Like This, a standout track from Underwood's latest album Play On, with a little help from fellow Country superstar Keith Urban. They all did a fantastic job and got the night of to a very energetic start, methinks.

Brad & Carrie then opened with a monologue and everyone from Taylor Swift to Tiger Woods to BP (and the oil spill in the gulf) was mentioned. There were a few genius one liners in there and these two definitely have a lot of chemstry going on. HILARIOUS STUFF.

Underwood and Paisley then sang a little song for newly engaged Country stars Blake Shelton & Mranda Lambert. And of course, Brad reminds all of us that it's her four month wedding anniversary.

Of course, with all her success, a performance at the CMA Awards was in order. Country/pop megastar Taylor Swift performed Back to December with a string section behind her while she played the piano. It was hauntingly good and if you were wondering why Swift mouthed a big "WHAT?" at the end of the performance, it was because she was shocked that she received a standing ovation, at least that's what reports are saying..

Jason Aldean teamed up with pop/rock superstar Kelly Clarkson on his latest single Don't You Wanna Stay and delivered their first BIG performance of the duet. Together, the pair weren't as strong as they were individually, but Kelly was phenomenal, and she sounded as on point as ever.

Despite being totally snubbed for any awards, Underwood took to the stage to perform Mama's Song, her latest single. The props and everything looked wonderful.
