The Academy of Country Music Awards were taken over by a pair of American Idol champions last night.

As previously posted, a very blonde Kelly Clarkson performed "Don't Rush" at the annual event, while twice-nominated Carrie Underwood also took to the CBS stage.

Surprisingly, Underwood did not win for either Female Vocalist of the Year or Album of the Year, but she didn't leave viewers disappointed. Come on... does she ever?!?

Watch Carrie do her talented thing now:

Carrie Underwood kicked off Sunday night's Academy of Country Music Awards with a big blast of rock 'n' roll, showing her vocal chops in belting out "Good Girl."

Her sexy black and magenta mini-dress was a nice touch too.

To those looking for a lot of traditional twang out of the country gala, Carrie's song was something of a warning shot ... this is 21st century country music.

The ACMs are very much a celebration of what the genre has become, with arena rockers (Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean) and a wave of 20-something upstarts incorporating different sounds into the genre (Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum).

We really need your help, readers.

Two of THG's all-tie favorites walked the red carpet at last night's Academy of Country Music Awards, with both Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood striking beautiful poses on the red carpet.

Each would then go on to have huge evenings, with Underwood opening the ceremony (via a rendition of "Good Girl") and Swift taking home Entertainer of the Year AND receiving an award from First Lady Michelle Obama. Not shabby.

With all that in mind, there really is no wrong response to the following Fashion Face-Off. Still, one is needed. Compare, contrast and vote now:

They actually sounded pretty good together ...

Carrie Underwood Quotes

I feel more beautiful when I see the pictures after. I'm like, 'I wish I had felt like I looked like that when I was actually there.'
