Last night's 2014 CMA Awards contained plenty of surprise appearances, but apparently one unexpected cameo did not sit well with country music fans.

Ariana Grande took the stage with Little Big Town to perform her hit "Bang, Bang" and while the audience on hand seemed to enjoy the show, folks watching at home took to the Internet to voice their displeasure.

Here are some sample tweets:

"Ariana Grande doesn't belong at the CMAs (especially in that outfit)"

"Why is Ariana Grande performing at the country music awards if she's not even a country singer? I'm confused."

"Still wildly confused as to why Ariana Grande was performing Bang Bang at the CMAs."

Jessie J and Nicki Minaj? Who needs 'em! Ariana Grande and Little Big Town teamed up for a rendition of "Bang Bang" at the 2014 CMA Awards last night ...

The 2014 CMA Awards featured Little Big Town taking the stage to perform its latest hit song "Day Drinking," before welcoming the Top 40 diva to the stage.

Rocking her signature ponytail, silver two-piece dress and matching heels, the 21-year-old made quite an impression with her looks and her vocal stylings.

The band did its best to reenact Minaj's rapping skills on the hit song.

Just kidding. But it was still a great mix of pop and country for sure.

The country quartet seemed thrilled to welcome their special guest.

It's safe to say Miranda Lambert had a good night on Wednesday at the 2014 CMA Awards.

The country music superstar won Album of the Year, along with Single the the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.

But most fans this morning aren't discussing the artist's impressive haul of trophies. Instead, they're replaying her fantastic duet of "All About That Bass" with the track's original singer, Meghan Trainor.

How did the two women put a country spin on this chart-topping smash? Watch below, see for yourself... and be proud of your figure, ladies!

Trainor is no stranger herself to putting a unique twist on already-established hits, such as when she covered Taylor Swift's Shake It Off with a ukelele and very little else.

The most anticipated night in country music lived up to the hype on Wednesday, as Luke Bryan took home Entertainer of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards.

Also, Miranda Lambert won Album of the Year. And Single the the Year. And Female Vocalist of the Year. She's darn good and damn popular.

Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood showed off her baby bump in approximately 79 outfits, while Meghan Trainor and Lambert sang a duet of “All About That Bass” and Kacey Musgraves donned the highest hairstyle since... ever.

But, come on, let's face it:

The CMA Awards, like every other awards ceremony, were really all about the fashion.

The winners have been revealed at the 2014 CMA Awards, airing Wednesday on ABC, and the biggest night in country music lived up to its star-studded billing.

While the coveted 2013 CMA Awards Entertainer of the Year went to country icon George Strait, this year's recipient was a first-time winner: Luke Bryan!

Luke's smash hit album Crash My Party and popular That’s My Kind of Night Tour took the popular crooner straight to the top for one heck of a first CMA win.

"We're gonna have a good time tonight," said Bryan in his acceptance speech.

His kind of night, no doubt, after this well-deserve triumph at the CMAs.

Miranda Lambert was the night's biggest winner despite losing to Bryan, winning Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.

Lambert's husband Blake Shelton took home Male Vocalist of the Year, for the fifth year in a row (Miranda's Female Vocalist win was also her fifth straight).

Here's the full list of 2014 CMA Awards winners:

Each other!

Both singers are up for Entertainer of the Year honors alongside Luke Bryan, George Strait and Keith Urban when the awards as passed out November 5.

A married couple known almost as much for their relationship (often the target of tabloid gossip), there's no debating Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton's talent.

The pregnant Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley return to host the ABC awards telecast for the seventh consecutive year from Nashville, Tenn.

Darius Rucker and Little Big Town announced the nominees in the first five categories on Good Morning America early Wednesday. See them after the jump:

CMA Awards hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood tore into ObamaCare during their comedic and musical intro on Wednesday night's telecast.

The duo poked fun at Miley Cyrus, Luke Bryan, and Dolly Parton, but their best jabs may have come at the faulty Affordable Care Act website's expense.

After the country crooner “injured” himself Twerking, Paisley said he might enroll. “I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done,” quipped Carrie.

The duo then went on to try getting Paisley signed up for health insurance, launching into a parody song spoofing the ACA's infamously problematic roll-out.

It was pretty funny. Check out the routine below:

Miranda Lambert won Female Vocalist of the Year at the CMA Awards last night, and competitor Kacey Musgraves was not what you'd call thrilled.

"Merry Go Round" singer Musgraves won New Artist of the Year and brought down the house with a live performance of her song "Follow Your Arrow."

Still, the acclaimed newcomer and Texas native, 25, appeared to have a sour moment following her loss in the Best Female Vocalist category to Miranda.

Musgraves couldn't hide her disappointment (0:45), then when Lambert, 29, congratulated her on her win earlier, she looked miserable (2:00). Watch:

There's no real shade-throwing among the 2013 CMA Awards winners, though.

Lambert and Musgraves have collaborated in the past, with the latter writing the former's hit "Mama's Broken Heart." Plus, East Texas girls stick together!

Kacey was also gracious when claiming her Best New Artist statue, saying, "This first year has just been indescribable ... I feel very thankful. Thank you so, so much."

The 2013 CMA Awards featured plenty of memorable moments, but perhaps none more surprising than the stars of Duck Dynasty twerking on stage.

If you can call it that. We're not really sure what that was ... but it was great!

Hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the show with a country-fied version of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Their version? "Duck Blind."

Carrie and Brad's rendition was basically about how great country girls are, and helped served as a perfect introduction for the Robertson family cameo.

You haven't lived until you've seen Willie Robertson sort of twerking.

Willie and brother Jase Robertson then presented the first award.

Taylor Swift became the second person ever to be honored with the Pinnacle Award at the 2013 CMA Awards, as a number of country music legends took to the stage to pay tribute to the young superstar.

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, George Strait, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley - all of whom have toured with Swift - presented the artist with the trophy, while video messages played from the likes of Mick Jagger, Justin Timberlake, Reese Witherspoon and Julia Roberts.

It was a lot for Swift to take, and it resulted in a very emotional acceptance speech.

Said Swift to the thousands in attendance and millions watching at home, tears in her eyes:
