Thursday night's Country Music Association Awards had it all: laughter, tears and lots of live performances.

From Miranda Lambert's high octane rendition of "Fastest Girl in Town" to Taylor Swift's debut of the lovelorn "Begin Again," it seemed like almost every nominee got their moment on stage, regardless if they took home an award or not.

With so many high energy sets, the evening felt more like a concert than an awards show!
