Ballerini, who hosted the event this year, had a total of nine outfit changes throughout the entire show, including the glittering gold bodysuit she wore for a pre-taped performance of her single, “Love Me Like You Mean It.”

She paired the pantsless look with sheer black tights and heels, pulling her hair up into a high ponytail.

The star finished the look off with sultry eye makeup that matched the rock ‘n’ roll glam vibes of the bodysuit.

Among Ballerini’s outfits of the evening was a lacy red David Koma gown, which she wore on the red carpet while posing with boyfriend Chase Stokes and showing tons of PDA with the “Outer Banks” star.
