In case you missed the CMT Music Awards -- here are our top five picks for best performances.

1. Paint Party! -- Little Big Town got doused in paint when they sang "Day Drinking."

2. Kristen's Spoof -- Hosting for a third time, Kristen Bell sang a silly song about male country crooner style. She started singing about seven minutes into her monologue.

3. "Somethin' Bad" -- Country music's beloved blonde duo Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood hit the stage to perform their energetic number.

4. Crossover Artist -- John Legend showed up in Nashville to perform a country version of his hit ballad "All of Me" alongside Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes.

5. Who Isn't On Stage?! -- This might be the largest collaboration we've seen on the CMT Music Awards yet! Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Jason Derulo and ZZ Top performed a medley of" La Grange," "This Is How We Roll" and "Talk Dirty."
