Country music took center stage at last night’s American Music Awards, which was not a big surprise — country fans still actually buy CDs. Somewhat more surprising, however, was the country-R&B crossover that took place about an hour into the show: Platinum-selling duo Sugarland took the stage to perform a hoedown-style version of Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable,” a.k.a. “the song that spawned a million Samsung commercials.” The Atlanta band had played the chart topper on their summer tour, so it was no great shock that they would attempt the R&B hit for a large TV audience. But then, in one of the night’s few truly interesting moments, Beyoncé emerged out of a revolving stage prop and joined in for the second verse. The band didn’t waiver from the line-dance stylistics of the performance, however, forcing Beyoncé to do her best Carrie Underwood impression while keeping up with the song’s slower-than-usual beat. We don’t know what was more awkward; Beyoncé attempting to lasso in some country fans (after angering them with that whole billboard incident), or B and Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles pointing in the wrong direction whenever they sang “To the left, to the left.” We’ll go with the latter, as the video above proves.
