Kelly Clarkson gave some pop/rock vibes to the stage of 2010 Country Music Association Awards on the Wednesday night of November 10. Introduced by host duo Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the singer made her first ever CMA performance as Jason Aldean's duet partner in "Don't You Wanna Stay".

"Don't You Wanna Stay" is taken from Aldean's newly-released studio effort titled "My Kinda Party". The album is currently debuting at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 200, selling around 193,000 copies in its opening week.

Back to the CMA Awards, the other musical guests at the event included Taylor Swift ("Back to December"), Gwyneth Paltrow ("Country Strong"), Underwood ("Songs Like This" and "Mama's Song"), Sugarland ("Stuck Like Glue") and Kid Rock ("Born Free").

Kelly Clarkson can sing any genre and be the best singer in that genre. I have never seen a singer that could change it up like that. I love watching her perform. It is also great that she has dropped enough weight to look healthy again. Now she looks and sounds amazing.

Jason Aldean is my new found love, his voice is amazing....and kelly, come on, she's amazing! Maybe they'll end up doing a Garth and Trisha! hahaha I hope not, he has a beautiful wife and little girls. but they did look good together, almost like siblings. What a freakin shame he didnt win one award, Im ready to beat someone's face in!

Kelly needs no introduction. She's not only the best American Idol ever, she can sing anything genre. That's how talented she is. Carrie is strictly country; and although she can sing as well, she is limited by her choice of country songs.

How rude not to say Kelly's name, hope it was not done on purpose. Bottome line her voice is better and stronger each and every year. The duet amazing. I buy all her CD's, I would love for her to do country. Because of You with Reba was great, if you never saw the video YOUTUBE.

Best of the night!!!! Can't believe Jason didn't win one award. What a disgrace. He is without a doubt one of the best. HE and Kelly need to do more songs together

I thought the duet with Kelly and Jason was the BEST of the night also. I love Kelly's voice and Jason is remarkable as well. You know those took look perfect for each other. They need to be a couple.

The duet between Kelly Clarkson and Jason Aldean was the best performance of the night. Kelly would be much better appreciated if she were in country music. She has an awesome voice. Jason rocks and his choice to have her do the duet couldn't have been a better one.

You can hear Carrie say "They took your line away" Sounds like there was suppose to be a line for Jeff to introduce Kelly, but something happened.

kelly and jason were awesome - totally rocked the night.

actually it seemed that mr.24 was supposed to say her name but in any event it was the best performance of the night

Actually Kelly was to be introduced by Jeff Gordon. I thought it was the best performance of the evening. Loved it.

Kelly and Jason stole the show.

Of course Kelly rocked, amazing. Kelly's fans are so loyal to her would follow her whatever kind of album she would make. I think country would love her. Jason has now found a new fan as well. He is great, going to buy his album in the morning.

Thanks, Jeebus ~ thought I was the only one who noted that Carrie "forgot" to mention Kelly in her intro of the duet.

Omg! What a great performance and song. My favorite of the night. I keep re-watching it on my dvr. Kelly is awesome. This will be a huge hit record.
posted by Jeebus on Nov 11, 2010
Don't you mean "not introduced" by hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood?
posted by Jeebus on Nov 11, 2010
Kelly and Jason were definitely the performance of the night. Kelly needs to make a country album because her voice is not only the best voice in Pop music, it would also be the best voice in Country music, by a mile.

Super performance. I came home from work tonight and listened to it all over again. Just great!

I agree best performance of the Cma's show by far!

Favorite of the night. They sounded great together. Kelly Clarkson's singing actually moves me. She is so underrated.

Kelly performance with Jason was one of the best of the night. Forgot that girl can sing. Love the song too.

This duet was the highlight of all the performances. Kelly Clarkson is the best, her voice is amazing! It sounds more natural, and even better stripped from all the pop production. Either way though, if Kelly sings, I am listening, and I am buying! By the way, Jason - you have a new fan!

The best performance of the night. It is a privilege to hear Kelly Clarkson sing. Her voice gives me chills. I cannot wait until her new album comes out. Jason sounded great as well. He has a sexy voice. Kelly Clarkson rocks my soul.

actually, she was (NOT)introduced by jeff gordon. it looked like it was his line to say her name, not carrie's bc she nudged him right before the camera went to the performance. they should have at least acknowledged that mistake by saying her name after the performance was over. but instead, the show just went on. poor kelly! she did such an amazing job too!!

Awesome performance by the #1 American Idol. Kelly has one of the most powerful, moving, unique voices in music today. I'd love to see her move to this type of music to better showcase her voice and reach more people. Loved it!
