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 …

Ariana Grande & Little Big Town - Bang Bang

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.


"Yes! Day Drinking w/ Ariana Grande on the CMAs!" Little Big Town shared on Twitter before the telecast. "Can’t wait to kick off the Pain Killer Tour this weekend!"

Grande added, "Was an honor to perform on the #CMAs tn! thanks so much @littlebigtown for welcoming me on your stage. the sweetest. y’all sounded amazing!"

And looked amazing. Check out red carpet pics from the event!
