American Idol season 16 alum Gabby Barrett won Breakthrough Video of the year for her smash country hit “I Hope.” Taylor Swift, who won the award 13 years ago, presented! Gabby also performed “I Hope” with her husband and fellow Idol alum, Cade Foehner.

The Voice coaches and real-life couple, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani accepted the Collaborative Video of the Year award for their hit “Nobody But You.”

And American Idol judge Luke Bryan won Male Video of the Year for “One Margarita”

Fun moment: Katy Perry introduced Luke Bryan’s performance from backstage at American Idol judges auditions. When CMT added Katy to the list of presenters, I had a feeling an Idol plug was coming! She joked that when CMT asked her to introduce her favorite judge, she replied that she’d be happy to introduce Lionel Richie. Heh.
