This week was a nice reminder that American Idol is still a competition, as each contestant chose their song from a list of competitor’s picks. The Alabama trio of Dexter, C.J., and Jessica didn’t fare too well with their Lady Antebellum trio performance that Harry called “not good.” With only a bottom two, how did things end up for the top 7?
Warning! Don’t read any more if you don’t want to be spoiled by tonight’s results!

Today's Glam Slam feature: Lady Antebellum's performance of the Fleetwood Mac classic "Rhiannon" with the legendary Stevie Nicks at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards was the highlight of the night for me.

Las Vegas—No genre embraces the American way of life with such unbridled patriotic fervor as country music, so paying tribute to the U.S. military seemed like a natural fit. But “Acm Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops” took what could have been a flag-waving, jingoistic exercise and turned it into a meaningful, often moving salute by not only honoring men and women in all branches of the armed services, but by including them as performers. And some of them threatened to steal the show from the professionals. Taped Monday (April 8), the night after the Acm Awards, and airing May 20 on CBS, the All-Star Salute featured top names such as Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert , Toby Keith, Hunter Hayes, Dierks Bentley, and more. Hosted by “NCIS: Los Angeles” stars Chris O’ Donnell and LL Cool J (who must have a pact »
Need this look now! Before performing "Rhiannon" with Stevie Nicks at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 6, Lady Antebellum's frontwoman, Hillary Scott, rocked the red carpet in a Stella McCartney illusion dress with a gorgeous smoky eye. Celebrity makeup artist Terri Apanasewicz created the glam look using Sonia Kashuk Collection products. "My inspiration for Hillary's red carpet look came together after I saw the dress she was wearing. Since it was so geometric, I wanted to keep the rest of her look soft by [...] »
On a night that saw a lot of action on cable with premieres (Welcome back Game Of Thrones and Veep) and season finales (Shameless and House Of Lies), CBS and the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards (3.3/9) took a hit from last year’s more than a decade-long high. With performances from The Voice’s Blake Shelton and Shakira, plus Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, an appearance by Garth Brooks and big wins for George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and Kacey Musgraves, the 8 Pm – 11 Pm awards show fell 23% from its April 7, 2013 show. Having lost out on the promotion platform of the Ncaa Tournament the night before (the basketball was on Turner not CBS), the Acm also saw a dip of 8% in terms of total viewership from 2013’s 15.38 million to 14.14 million last night. CBS started the night with a new 60 Minutes (1.3/4) that was down 54% from last week, which saw overruns from the college basketball tournament. »

Last night, while everyone was watching the season premieres of Game of Thrones, Veep, and Silicon Valley (or some combination of the three), CBS aired the Academy of Country Music Awards. Not the CMAs or the CMTs: the ACMs — the one where the trophy looks like this. That's Taylor Swift holding the trophy in that picture, and while she was in attendance last night, she took home no awards. (Unless you count the one nabbed by the video for "Highway Don't Care," her duet with Tim McGraw, which we do not.) Still, Swift shout-outs are obligatory.And they smartly let Blake Shelton co-host. He took a shot directly at Britney Spears in the show's first five minutes, and because he's such a good guy, no one will care. Stevie Nicks performed a duet with Lady Antebellum, mixing "Golden" and Nicks's "Rihannon." And because all Voice judges are required to sing »

It's not an awards show if Taylor Swift isn't passionately dancing in the audience. The 24-year-old didn't hold back at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 6, when Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum performed the hit "Wagon Wheel" on stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. After a relatively tame series of performances by Blake Shelton and Shakira, Miranda Lambert, and Lee Brice, Swift finally was able to cut loose and bust a move by standing up, clapping, and swaying [...] »
Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan hosted the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which included performances by Jason Aldean, who won Male Vocalist of the Year, and Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert.
The Band Perry kicked off the show with a performance of “Chainsaw” that unleashed a cannon of confetti on the audience. When Shelton and Bryan took the stage, they wasted no time in firing shots at performers outside the country music genre.

“Tonight is about live music. If you don’t like live music, go down the block and see Britney Spears,” Shelton started.
An awkward moment was, thankfully, avoided, as the broadcast refrained from cutting to a reaction shot of Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn Spears, who was in attendance.

The 49th Annual Acm Awards were held Sunday night in Las Vegas, where George Strait took home Entertainer of the Year, Miranda Lambert earned her fifth consecutive Female Vocalist title, and Darius Rucker stole the show. Here are a few more honors from the telecast. Feel free to add your own in the comments.
Best reminder that the ACMs are held in Vegas (except next year, when they head to Dallas’ At&T Stadium for the 50th anniversary), while the CMAs are held in Nashville: Co-host Blake Shelton’s opening monologue zinger about all the performances on the telecast: “If »

Hey there, Hillary Scott! The new mama proudly showed off her post-baby bod at the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet. Scott wore a body-con little black dress with white long sleeves and paired the look with some sexy thigh-high boots. Get 'em, girl! She posed alongside Stevie Nicks, who performed "Golden" with Lady Antebellum earlier during the awards show. The 28-year-old singer gave birth just eight months ago and wore a satin navy Pea in the Pod gown at last year's Acm Awards! Back in October, Scott shared the first pic of her adorable baby girl Eisele Kaye Tyrrell on Twitter. "Hello World, my name is Eisele Kaye," »

7:50 p.m.: Hello from the 49th annual Acm Awards in Las Vegas. We'll be blogging live from the press room, which means we'll be commenting on the action you're seeing on TV, but also on what's going on backstage as the artists come back to talk to the press. The Band Perry are opening the show with an explosive version of "Chainsaw," and the performers' list is a virtual who's who of country: Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, George Strait, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and more. There are 25 performances in all. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are co-hosting for the second year, so there should be plenty of laughs. 8:04 p.m.: The Band Perry opens the show with a midtempo tune called "Chainsaw." It's all sizzle and very little steak, with Kimberly Perry stomping around, confetti flying, and Reid Perry »

Tim McGraw is the leading nominee for the 49th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, with seven nods, but he may be going home empty handed on Sunday night. Below are my predictions in the main categories for the April 6 ceremony, which airs on CBS live Edt starting at 8 p.m. Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan Miranda Lambert Blake Shelton George Strait Taylor Swift Should Win: George Strait. Even though some will consider it a sentimental win, he’s still selling out arenas and going out at the top of his game. Will Win: Blake Shelton Male Vocalist of the Year Jason Aldean Lee Brice Luke Bryan Blake Shelton Keith Urban Should Win: It’s a bit of a strange category: Where’s Brad Paisley? Where’s Eric Church? Of this group, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban are the stand out vocalists, with Shelton winning by a nose. Will »
"Cruise," the crossover hit single by breakout duo Florida Georgia Line, is the overwhelming favorite to win Single Record of the Year at the Acm Awards, and for good reason. Crossover hits have done well in the past, including Lonestar's "Amazed" (1999), Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take the Wheel" (2005), and Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" (2009). "Cruise," which peaked at number-four on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold more than six million copies, gets 2/7 odds. -Break- ACMs: Will Taylor Swift wreak revenge against Luke Bryan? ACMs: Will Kacey Musgraves keep Miranda Lambert from making history? Hoping to upset is Miranda Lambert, who gets 8/1 odds for "Mama's Broken Heart," also nominated for Song and Video of the Year. She has won the category twice before: for "The House That Built Me" (2010) and "Over You" (2012). Ranking third »
The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. on CBS. While slightly more prestigious than the American Music Awards (which are similarly produced by dick clark productions), the ACMs are to the Cma Awards what the AMAs are to the Grammys: they are a little less stuffy and a little more loose-limbed. The ceremony is in in Las Vegas, so artists are out of their Nashville hometown and they feel a little less constrained. Like all music awards shows now, the reason to tune in is for the performances, not necessarily the awards presentations, and the 3-hour extravaganza is packed with them from Jason Aldean, Bryan, Eric Church, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Hunter Hayes, and show opener The Band Perrry. However, if you’re keeping count on the awards front: Tim McGraw and Miranda Lambert lead all nominees with seven nods each, »
Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves will be tour mates this summer, but first the two will come together for the 50th episode of “Crossroads,” Cmt’s innovative series that pairs country artists with acts from another genre. “Cmt Crossroads: Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves” will premiere June 13, not only on Cmt, but on sister stations VH1, MTV, MTV Hits and Palladia. The show should provide a big boost for Musgraves, who won Grammys this January for best country song and best country album, but has yet to break through into the mainstream. As with past episodes, Perry and Musgraves will share stories and songs in the hour-long episode. Past pairings have include Def Leppard with Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi and Sugarland, Stevie Nicks and Lady Antebellum, Elvis Costello and Lucinda Williams, and, most recently, Dierks Bentley with OneRepublic. Perry's tour kicks off June 22 in Raleigh, N.C. »
Viacom’s Cmt hopes to raise a hoot and a holler with a new slate of documentary programming.
The network, focused on country music and entertainment, intends to use the non-fiction series – about 20 hours’ worth in the season ahead – to “bring a voice to that form of storytelling that I believe is underrepresented,” said Jayson Dinsmore, executive vice president of development and programming at Cmt.
The network made its programming announcement at a presentation in New York featuring a performance from Lady Antebellum.
Documentaries on tap include: “Promiseland,” a look at the American farmer, from executive producer Ridley Scott; “They Called Us Outlaws,” an eight-hour documentary “event” from Eric Geadelman and Mark Johnson that looks at the rise of a new strain of country music in the 1960s and 1970s; “Freedom,” from director Morgan Spurlock, a 90-minute film that asks whether or not independence is still a part of American »

Shakira and her fellow “The Voice” coach Blake Shelton will perform their duet, “Medicine,” on Sunday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The ceremony, which airs live from Las Vegas, will be co-hosted by Shelton and Luke Bryan. The Band Perry will open the show with what the Acms are calling an “explosive” performance (we’re hoping they mean pyro). Other previously announced performers include Bryan and Florida Georgia Line, George Strait, Hunter Hayes, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Toby Keith, Keith Urban, and Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks (in a re-creation of their Cmt “Crossroads” special). Garth Brooks will present Merle Haggard with the Crystal Milestone Award. Hitfix will be at the event and will bring you all the news at it happens. »
