Taylor Swift Duets With T-Pain, Dominates CMT Awards-photo

Yee-hizzle!

Taylor Swift stepped out of her comfort zone at the CMT Awards on Tuesday night, busting out some previously hidden mad rhyming skills with rapper T-Pain for the ceremony's opening number, "Thug Story."

A gritty song about the skills that one needs to survive on the streets—such as, in Taylor's case, baking cookies—served as an early high point for one of the biggest nights in country music.  But the Fearless songbird's night was far from over. The 19-year-old went on to pick up Video of the Year and Female Video awards for her clip "Love Story." (The video's director, Trey Fanjoy, also won kudos.) Here's a complete list of last night's winners:

Video of the year: Taylor Swift, "Love Story."

• Male video: Brad Paisley, "Waitin' on a Woman."

• Female video: Taylor Swift, "Love Story."

• Group video: Rascal Flatts, "Every Day."

• Duo video: Sugarland, "All I Want to Do."

• Breakthrough video: Zac Brown Band, "Chicken Fried."

• Collaborative video: Brad Paisley with Keith Urban, "Start a Band."

• Performance of the year: Alan Jackson, George Strait, Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley, "Country Boy."

• Wide open country video: Kid Rock, "All Summer Long."

• Video director of the year: Trey Fanjoy for Taylor Swift's "Love Story."

    Zac has Robert beat hands down....anybody with good eyes can see who is the best....Zac is the most handsome young man I have seen in a long time...his appearance is 50X's better than Robert....I do not understand how anybody can say that Rob is better than Zac..."ZAC ALL THE WAY" his acting is much better also....he is an amazing young man and I wish him and Vanessa many many happy years together they deserve it....

    I don't care for Rob Pattinson that much as an actor. He definitely has not shown the range that Zac Efron has. Once the Twilight series is done, people will be asking "Robert Pattinson" who? If Zac can find the perfect role and sink his teeth into it, then he will come out ahead. I agree with the person that stated this is Zac's chance to show people he is ready for different roles.
