    On Sunday night, the 52nd annual Academy of Country Music Awards took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley co-hosted the show for a second year and the best and brightest of the Nashville scene shined in Sin City.

    The biggest moment of the night, however, did not come from a band usually associated with the country music world. The Backstreet Boys stole the show, joining Florida-Georgia Line for a mashup of their collaborative single "God, Your Mama and Me" and the 1997 smash "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)."

    Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert made history winning Female Vocalist of the Year for the eighth consecutive time. She also picked up the award for Album of the Year. And was nominated for five total awards.

    Power couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, meanwhile, performed their new single "Speak to a Girl", and showed off some adorable PDA.

    The award show also took a dig at the Oscar's Best Picture gaff. While presenting Song of the Year, David Copperfield and Nancy O'Dell announced La La Land star Emma Stone as the winner of the award, even showing her name on the winner's card. After some laughs from the audience and a magic trick from Copperfield, the real winner was announced: Thomas Rhett for his track "Die a Happy Man."
