Jason Aldean took home the Entertainer of the Year at the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards.  And a variety of artists gave top-notch performances.

The Backstreet Boys shined brightly at the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards. The boy band had the night's liveliest moment in Las Vegas: the fivesome brought the party vibe to life while singing their classic "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" along with duo Florida Georgia Line.

Carrie Underwood and Nicole Kidman were just a few of the audience members at the Arena who felt the nostalgia, sang along and danced excitedly.

Florida Georgia Line won two awards, but lost the top prize - entertainer of the year - to Jason Aldean, who also won the honor last year.

Miranda Lambert also had a top-notch performance: She earned a standing ovation after she sang the slow, acoustic-sounding "Tin Man."
She won album of the year for her double disc, "The Weight of These Wings," and female vocalist of the year, besting Reba McEntire's record for most wins in the category.

Thomas Rhett was a multiple winner too. He took home song of the year for "Die a Happy Man," and also won male vocalist of the year, beating out Urban, Aldean, Bentley and Chris Stapleton.

Sam Hunt performed his No. 1 hit, "Body Like a Back Road". Other performers included Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini as well as Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who sang a new duet.

The music video for "Forever Country," the medley celebrating the Country Music Association Awards' 50th anniversary featuring Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and others, won video of the year.
