AceShowbiz - Niall Horan and Pink were among the big performers at the 2017 Country Music Association Awards, which was held on November 8 at Nashville Bridgestone Arena. Niall, together with Maren Morris, rocked the stage with their performance of "Seeing Blind".
Their performance started as Maren sang a chorus of her song, "I Could Use a Love Song". The country singer, dressed in a purple velvet gown, then joined Niall to perform "Seeing Blind", which is included in Niall's "Flicker" album. The performance marked Niall's debut performance at the award event and his first big solo TV appearance since One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus.
Niall was not the only pop star who visited the country music event. Pink also graced the stage at the event, performing one of the tracks off "Beautiful Trauma", "Barbies". Wrapped up in a black gown and a green jacket, the 38-year-old singer delivered an enchanting performance of the song along with four string players.
The event was filled with tribute performances, and Little Big Town was among the performers who delivered it. The vocal quartet, who debuted in 1998, paid tribute to Glen Campbell by performing one of his greatest hits, "Wichita Lineman". At the end of the performance, a picture of Glen appeared on the screen.
Host Carrie Underwood also joined the list of performers who paid tribute at the event. Sporting a glamorous look with a white floral gown, Carrie delivered a splendid performance of Christian hymn "Softly and Tenderly" to pay homage to several legendary performers. They were Glen Campbell, Don Williams and Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry. Towards the end of her performance, the faces of 58 victims of Las Vegas shooting massacre were flashed on the screen.
Keith Urban, on the other hand, performed his new song "Female", which is inspired by Harvey Weinstein. It was the first time Keith performed the song onstage. Various female voices can be heard in the background as the former "American Idol" judge sang.
