Crow's pants steal the show at CMTs

Taylor Swift won the biggest prize at a country music awards bash, but it was Sheryl Crow's underwear that provided the night's biggest talking point.

Sheryl, sitting on a stool in a short white skirt to duet with Kid Rock, briefly flashed the camera as she stood up at the CMT (Country Music Television) awards - prompting a viral sensation on Twitter.

The All I Wanna Do singer acknowledged the moment about an hour later when she and musician Sara Evans presented a gong.

"Well, at least you were wearing underwear," Sara told Sheryl.

"I was wearing underwear because I'm good, clean, wholesome family fun," the star joked.

Taylor won video of the year for her song Mine thanks to her fans. Meanwhile, The House that Built Me singer Miranda Lambert took female video of the year and her new husband, Blake Shelton, was the night's only multiple winner.

Taylor joined Shania Twain for their pre-recorded faux movie trailer recreating Thelma and Louise that included guest appearances by Donald Trump and Kenny Rogers.

Near the end of the show, fans audibly gasped as Twain slipped and fell on her way to the stage to make an introduction.

And Justin Bieber induced tears from teenagers as he walked the red carpet with Rascal Flatts. The pair took home best collaboration for That Should Be Me.
