The show started with a Star Wars style scroll on the screen saying, “Episode XLIX (or, um… 49). It is country music’s biggest night! Princess Carrie Fisher, also know as Carrie Underwood, has just been informed that the show’s whole big ‘Star Wars’ opening sketch was scrapped. Princess Carrie rushes down the backstage hallway in search of her co-host, a notorious scoundrel known across the universe as Guitar Solo.”
At the end of the opening monologue, Star Trek star William Shatner popped out on stage in a Stormtrooper outfit!
