    CMA Awards 2012: All the performances as they happen

    CMA Awards 2012: All the performances as they happen

    By Todd MartensNovember 1, 2012, 4:48 p.m.



    Welcome, country music fans.

    What follows will be instant grades of every performance at tonight's Country Music Assn. Awards. This post is written off-site from the CMAs at the LAT HQ, and strives to be as fast and accurate as possible. On tap at the show are performances from the likes of Jason Aldean, Faith Hill, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, among others.

    Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan & Eric Church, “The Only Way I Know.” The CMA Awards got off to a workmanlike start. As the East Coast recovers from Hurricane Sandy, Aldean and Church kept things simple and straightforward with this sleeves-rolled-up anthem. A nearly romanticized ode to hard, blue-collar work, Aldean sang of soaking in the rain, baking in the sun and getting things done with one's back against the fence. It's stronger in the hands of Aldean, who's a little rougher around the edges. But co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley soon took the show down a more lighthearted path, poking fun at Swift, referencing Maroon 5 and doing a little "Gangnam Style" dance. The first 10 minutes captured the line this show will attempt to walk between county and pop. Grade: B.

    Carrie Underwood, "Blown Away." Brad Paisley's co-host went all "Snow White & the Huntsmen" for her performance — with glitter, of course. It was dark and icy, and so was the singer. Underwood hasn't learned how to do subtle, which is why she's best when she skips the ballads and brings a little rock 'n' roll edge to her sound. Grade: B.

    Considering the other grades, Carrie did great.

    Woah--- they really slammed everyone! Carrie got the highest grade actually, tied with SWSRN. lol

    Miranda Lambert, "Fastest Girl in Town."
    As someone who has championed Lambert in the past, "Fastest Girl in Town" leaves me defenseless. This is Lambert's look-at-me-I'm-crazy shtick at most predictable. There are references to guns, bullets, booze, fast cars and any other country music-meets-action-movie cliche you can think up. Although her outfit, which looked like a stained-glass window made of plastic, may lend some credence to her claims of beings nuts. Grade: D.

    My first take on this grade was, you've got to be kidding. What does this girl have to do to impress, then I saw the other grades, with the highest given were b+ and then I thought OK, not bad.

    Thank you for posting this. Can't to actually watch these online. Besides Carrie's performance I look forward to hearing Keith Urban's (I Love Georgia Woods) and the new Band Perry song.
