Hill and husband Tim McGraw also provided one of the show's funniest moments near the beginning of the show.

In the opening skit, co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood brought out Barbies of Hill and McGraw.

"I can't wait until after the show," Paisley said to Underwood. "Can we play with them now?"

The two made the dolls kiss and before checking to see if the McGraw doll was anatomically correct. "There's nothing there," Paisley said in amazement.

The camera cut to McGraw and Hill, who raised her arms and mouthed the words, "I know," receiving the night's biggest laugh.
