The country music world is no stranger to big hair, but Little Big Town paid homage to the ’80s in another way during their 2012 CMA Awards performance, singing the entirety of “Pontoon” in what appeared to be the set of a lost Robert Palmer video.
All four band members lined up in separate little cubby holes on stage, writing around sexily in black leather while they sang their ode to the leisurely pastime of motorboatin’. Maybe there wasn’t enough room on stage next to Taylor Swift‘s French cafe set — the singer performed her new single, “Begin Again,” right before LBT.
Around them, the stage played ’80s-tastic graphics that appeared to come straight from the the iTunes visualizer, including falling beach balls, the words “mmm motorboatin'” and an actual pontoon.
What did you think of the performance? And do you suddenly have the urge to day drink while sailing on a pontoon boat?
