Miranda Lambert And Blake Shelton Lead Winners In 2011 CMT Music Awards
The bad: No awards show has more of a inferiority complex with its own genre as the night was sprinkled with video wins by Justin Bieber, a hosting by rocker Kid Rock, The Band Perry singing Rihanna lines from Eminem songs, Lady Antebellum covering Prince and performances by Ludacris. Why can't a country music show be a country music show? Celebrate what you are.
