Best 'A Star Is Born': Kimberly Perry

Brothers Reid and Neil are aces in their own right, but Kimberly Perry's performance on Friday night at LP Field was nothing short of spectacular. Whether defiantly pushing down her mike stand or showing off hip moves that would make Shakira blush, Perry looked every bit country's next superstar. Always a commanding presence onstage, the newly buff bride-to-be — she's engaged to MLB catcher J.P. Arencibia — displayed a confident, almost cocky, sexiness heretofore unseen. At times, she seemed downright dangerous, particularly during current single "Chainsaw" and the highlight of their Pioneer album, "Better Dig Two." If a fight had broken out in the crowd below, we've no doubt the fired-up Perry would have dived in to join.
