Country music superstars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley put on an entertaining display during Wednesday night’s 45th Annual Country Music Association Awards out of Nashville, lampooning Kim Kardashian’s recent ill-fated marriage and the Justin Bieber baby scandal.
Kardashian got hit with some of the comedy shrapnel when the duo, along with Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, sang a little ditty in honor of her 72-day union with NBA forward Kris Humphries.
As they sang, “I’m gonna love you forever,” they added, “or 72 days!”
Then, 90-year-old country singer Little Jimmy Dickens, dressed up to resemble Justin Bieber, emerged on the stage, saying he was going to promote his new song “It Ain’t My Baby, Baby.”
“Justin, this scandal has really aged you,” Underwood said. “Like a week ago, you had no wrinkles or liver spots!”
The big winners on the night included: Taylor Swift, who won her second entertainer of the year award; Miranda Lambert, crowned female vocalist of the year; her husband Blake Shelton, capturing male vocalist of the year; and The Band Perry, winning the best new artist honors.
