Worst Moments of the Show
No equality of genders
The imbalance of the male and female was shown at the event again this time. From 13 trophies, female artists and performers received four, and only two were given love a good medley of legendary artists including Underwood and Morris. The male performers won five categories in a row: duo (Dan + Shay), group (Old Dominion), song (Old Dominion), single (Blake Shelton), an album (Luke Combs). Maren Morris accepts the female artist of the year award during the ACMs.
Missing of funny moments
During the current pandemic, it is not possible to arrange an event but ACMs succeeded in doing so. But the audience missed the comedy and funny moments in the show.
The tie wasn’t good enough
No doubt, Underwood and Rhett are professional celebrities but the tie wasn’t good enough. It shocked the viewers of the show as it was one of the prestigious awards of the show. It was the strange point of the show.
