Wednesday’s win was especially big for Gwen Stefani, who is new to the country genre thanks to her duets with Blake. “My gosh! I can’t believe,” Gwen said while accepting the award. “Country music! This is like, what is happening in my life?” 

Blake said he wasn’t expecting to win against the other nominees in their category, particularly Justin Bieber. He thanked the fans for voting for them, and then said something about the state of award shows that seemed to surprise Gwen.

“I really do believe that these award shows are beginning to lose credibility over the last few years,” he said, causing Gwen to gape at him. However, she then nodded, seeming to agree with him.

Blake went on to say, “Fan voted awards, to me, are really the only stand-up award shows left in our industry, it feels like sometimes. Because you guys are the ones that buy the records, you come to the shows, and you vote on these things.”
