Juliana Hough, Kellie Pickler, LeAnn Rimes and Jessica Simpson

Country superstars Juliana Hough, Kellie Pickler, LeAnn Rimes and Jessica Simpson read the nominations live during CBS's "The Early Show" broadcast.  The winners will be broadcast live from Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, April 5th (8:00 - 11:00 PM live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.

While all four of the Country Superstars looked gorgeous, Jessica Simpson was most noteworthy because her normally light blonde hair was a darker, richer, blonde.

Wearing a gorgeous black dress and jacket with beautiful accessories, Jessica's hair was coiffed in a soft finished twist.
