    I Always Think It's Funny How Dramatically Different Celebrities Dress For The 3 Most Important Music Awards Shows

    Honestly, it's just funny to me.

    Here's a comparison of how celebrities dress at the Country Music Association Awards vs. the MTV Video Music Awards vs. the Grammy Awards. Why? No real reason besides the fact that I love a good random comparison.

    For most of these celebrities, I used photos of their most recent appearances at each individual awards show. Moral of the story: 1) Guys are boring and need to have more fun, and 2) I also love a good country cosplay.
