They’re no Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan held their own while hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 6. The guys teamed up for the second year in a row to host the show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The Voice coach wasted no time bringing out the zingers during the opening monologue, and almost immediately threw out a diss directed at Britney Spears. “If you don’t like live music, then you need to go down the block and see Britney Spears,” he joked. The singer is currently performing at Planet Hollywood in Vegas, where she’ll stay for a two year residency.
Surprisingly, there was no cutaway to Brit’s little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, who was sitting in the audience.
Throughout the rest of their opening monologue, Blake and Luke poked fun at some of their fellow country singers, and also spent a lot of time ragging on one another. Check it out above!
