Ariana Grande Interrupted Little Big Town's 2014 CMA Awards Performance With A 'Bang Bang'

Her cat ears couldn't make it.

Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor were the two pop-music outliers on the 2014 CMA Awards otherwise country-filled performance roster, but that's where the similarities between the two ladies' sets ended.

Whereas the "All About That Bass" singer teamed up with Miranda Lambert to give her breakout single a more Nashville sound, Grande straight-up busted through the middle of Little Big Town's "Day Drinking" with "Bang Bang." No mash-up, no transition -- just full speed ahead on the Top 40 express.

What followed were vocals, vocals, THOSE HIGH NOTES, vocals, pretty light-up outfits, vocals and more vocals -- and look at that! No cat ears. Enjoy some performance highlights below.
