Underwood, Lambert and Jackson: 6 standout moments from the 2022 CMA Awards
Hits: The ‘You Oughta Know’ video. The Taylor Swift tribute. The Carrie Underwood-Beyoncé dance routine. These are six of the most memorable moments from the CMA Awards, which aired on CBS on Monday night.
The show gave out lots of awards — including best country performance by a duo or group with a female, best country song and best country solo performance by a duo or group.
Some of these were pretty big — Carrie Underwood’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” was one of many country performances that earned major honors Monday night.
But there were also some not-so-big moments, like the “You Oughta Know,” “Won’t Be Long” and Taylor Swift tribute.
Here’s a look at six memorable performances from the show’s big night.
HIT: Carrie Underwood performs “You Oughta Know” with Taylor Swift
The Grammy-winning country singer and actress teamed up for Underwood’s “You Oughta Know,” which she performed during the show’s first hour-long taping Monday.
It was a fun performance as fans in the green-and-gold CMA Awards on CBS Television City, located in Nashville, cheered and clapped along.
While “I Will Always Love You” was the big hit of the night, “You Oughta Know” was the single most watched.
“She’s the one with the most YouTube views in the world so I feel like if I was a songwriter, that’s probably the one that I’d write and I would record and it’s the one that I’d perform a lot,” Swift told Billboard magazine.
“And that is an amazing song, I’m just so happy that she’s been working on it and doing it like this and we’re here for it.”
HIT: Taylor Swift performs “Look What You Made Me Do”
The “Back to December” singer and Swift reunited on the night of the show’s first hour-long taping to perform “Look What You Made Me Do,” which she wrote and performed with Swift’s husband, rapper Taylor.
The two, along with Swift’s mother, Carrie Underwood, and country music’s queen bee, Lady Antebellum, joined Swift on stage.
