Carrie Underwood proved last night that she's still the Queen of the CMT Awards.

The 38-year-old singer made history again after she and John Legend won Video of the Year for their song Hallelujah. This was John's first CMT win, while Carrie has won over 20. Last night marked her ninth Video of the Year award, which she has won three years in a row — wow!

During her acceptance speech, Carrie was quick to thank all the fans who voted and praised John, who wrote the song and collaborated with her. "John legend, thank you for sending me this incredible song and agreeing to sing with me on it and making this incredible video that I am so proud of, and congratulations on what I think is your first CMT Award," she said.
