The show included a number of memorable performances, including a few collaborations that paired country artists with pop singers.

Here’s a clip of Rihanna performing her new single “California King Bed” as a countrified duet with Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles.

In this performance, American Idol season 4 winner Carrie Underwood teams up with current American Idol judge Steven Tyler for a show stopping medley of Underwood’s rocker “Undo It” and the Aerosmith classic “Walk This Way.”
