Last night Ryan Seacrest presented Taylor Swift with her Entertainer Of The Year statue at the 46th annual Academy Of Country Music Awards event in Las Vegas. “This is the first time I’ve ever won this and I’m just losing my mind,” a clearly stunned Swift noted. “The fact that this is from the fans makes it so beautiful.” Watch Taylor pick up her award, plus performances by Rihanna, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, Carrie Underwood and American Idol judge Steven Tyler below. Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton—who will act as a judge on NBC’s upcoming series The Voice—shared hosting duties during a night that saw Miranda Lambert pick up Song, Single and Video Of The Year awards, in addition to one for Top Female Vocalist. Meanwhile, Lady Antebellum, who won big at the Grammys two months ago, walked away from last nights ACMAs with Album Of The Year and Top Vocal Group honors.
