On Wednesday night (June 4), celebrities from across the entertainment world hit Nashville in style, ready for the biggest party all year — the 2014 CMT Music Awards .
When host Kristen Bell finally said goodnight, Carrie Underwood had walked away with the belt buckle for video of the year for “See You Again,” and other winners included Blake Shelton (male video of the year), Miranda Lambert (female video of the year), Florida Georgia Line (duo video and collaborative video of the year), Luke Bryan (collaborative video and CMT performance of the year), The Band Perry (group video of the year) and Cassadee Pope (breakthrough video of the year).
The night was filled with once-in-a-lifetime mashups like Florida Georgia Line, Bryan and pop star Jason Derulo on “This Is How We Roll/Talk Dirty” and Jennifer Nettles, Hunter Hayes and R&B crooner John Legend on “All of Me.”
Plus, fans were treated to the ultimate country concert experience with back-to-back performances from the likes of Shelton, Lambert, Underwood, Jake Owen, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church and more.
When the show got underway, a hilarious opening skit featuring Bell took center stage — including a video segment which featured an alleged fight on the elevator involving Florida Georgia Line and Bryan . From there, there the pint-sized actress with a giant sense of humor had the audience hanging on her every word.
Additionally, TV celebrities like James Van Der Beek, Beth Behrs, Kate Walsh and Stone Cold Steve Austin made appearances as presenters.
