ACM Awards. The winners are...

Carrie Underwood returned to the stage for the first time since suffering an injury to her face. Wearing tear-shaped glitter makeup below her eyes, Underwood delivered an emotional performance her new single “Cry Pretty.”

The 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards went down last night, and for the majority of the broadcast, it was a great show.
