(Newser) – A country music awards show where Taylor Swift didn’t take home a single trophy? Inconceivable! But it’s true: Carrie Underwood beat Swift to win the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year award last night, making her the first woman in history to win the top honor twice—in consecutive years, no less. The evening’s biggest winners were Lady Antebellum with five trophies, and Miranda Lambert with three, the AP reports.

Despite being shut out of all five awards she was nominated for, Swift—last year’s Album of the Year winner—did give a high-flying performance of “Change.” For more on the awards—including which diva got the show confused with the CMAs—click here.
