The CMA Awards are known as Country Music's Biggest Night, but one pop star made waves with her appearance. Kelly Clarkson, who, of course, can sing absolutely anything, took the stage for one of the most fun performances of the night. And her fans had a lot to say about her outfit for the evening.

Kelly wore an Alexander McQueen asymmetrical denim dress paired with navy embellished boots by Zimmermann.(For a similar look, try this denim dress from Amazon.)

She posted photos from the night on her Instagram page and got more than 40,000 likes and hundreds of comments. Fellow American Idol star Jennifer Hudson commented, "She cute!" Other fans jumped in the comment section to leave positive messages:

  • "Go off queen"

Kelly took the stage with Kelsea Ballerini and Carly Pearce and instantly formed the girl group of our dreams. For the performance, Kelsea wore a short denim dress with a bustier top and thigh-high floral boots and Carly wore a light blue romper with an oversize bow.

The trio lit up the stage for a boot-stomping performance of "You're Drunk, Go Home" from Kelsea's new album, Subject to Change. Kelsea told Audacy that Kelly and Carly had never met before the performance. She said, "They’ve never met, and they’re mutual fans of each other, so I feel like a musical matchmaker where I get to just watch them fall in love. I’m very excited!" She continued, "It’s just such a fun song too. It’s a light moment, it’s a sassy and very country."

Cheers to this new country music trio!
