Wednesday's CMT Music Awards broadcast was once again a star-studded night of predictable victories and unpredictable performances. Thanks to fans voting online, Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan were the top winners, taking home two belt-buckle trophies apiece. Carrie Underwood claimed the highest honor, Video of the Year, for "See You Again." The Male and Female Video of the Year trophies will go home together to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's jam-packed trophy case. Other victories went to Lionel Richie, Cassadee Pope, the Band Perry and Alan Jackson.
The live CMT broadcast was, so far, country music's wildest party of the year, with Dixie Cup-wielding artists thinking way outside the box for performances that ranged from the mind-blowing to the head-scratching.
