Among the fortunate entertainers heading home with a new mantlepiece, Kelly Clarkson proudly raised her trophy up in the air at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night (April 1).

The "American Idol" alum joined alongside Jason Aldean on the MGM Grand Garden Arena stage as the pair accepted the Vocal Event of the Year accolade for their collaborative tune, "Don’t You Wanna Stay".

During the course of the night, Miss Clarkson also spent time alongside the ceremony's co-host Reba McEntire.

The two lovely ladies had quite the thrill during the gal chat - as at one point they were surprised by the members of KISS, who attended the AMCs in full costume.
