Sheryl Crow Flashes Underwear at CMT Music Awards

Ludacris made a surprise appearance—as did Sheryl Crow's underwear (click here for the video)—at the CMT Music Awards last night. Lady Antebellum laid down a funky beat with Charles Kelley doing a Don Henley impression. Fans audibly gasped as Shania Twain slipped and fell on her way to the stage. But they also gave out awards: Taylor Swift's fans gave her the night's top honor—the fan-voted video of the year award for "Mine." Lady A opened with its record-setting single "Just a Kiss," but then switched to Prince's "Kiss" with singer Kelley hopping onto drums. Jason Aldean topped off the night with a surprise version of his hip hop-infused hit "Dirt Road Anthem" with rapper Ludacris.

And of course, Crow's underwear made a brief appearance, after she sang "Collide" with host Kid Rock. The singer wore a short, white skirt as she sat on a stool alongside Kid Rock and briefly flashed the camera as she stood up. It happened in a blink of the eye, but in the age of DVRs the moment went viral on Twitter, something Crow acknowledged about an hour later when she and Sara Evans presented an award. "Well, at least you were wearing underwear," Evans told Crow. (And in related celebrity underwear news...)
