Ariana Grande took the stage at the Country Music Awards on Wednesday night and performed her popular track, “Bang Bang.” But there was something different about the star’s performance. Instead of rocking out with the song’s featured artists, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J, Grande stood alongside country group, Little Big Town.
The act first kicked off with an electrifying performance of LBT’s “Day Drinking.” The group then called Grande to the stage for a surprisingly stellar performance of the hit song.
Ariana stunned in a metallic two-piece dress while sporting her classic ponytail. As for LBT’s attempt at Nicki’s verse, we have to say it was seemingly successful. The group didn’t exactly rap, but they did sing the verse with some country twang.
Check out the performance below.
