Musician Keith Urban was the essence of cool in an all black ensemble. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)

BEST: Wowza! Marriage is looking good for Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry. The stunning singer flashed her gorgeous gams in a black dress with gold detailing. She polished off the look with a set of sky-high heels.  (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)

BEST: Danielle Bradbery, who famously won "The Voice," is putting her teen years behind her in a form-fitting black dress with a mesh bottom which showed off her fit gams. (Photo by Michael Loccisano/Getty Images)
WORST: John Osborne and T.J. Osborne of Brothers Osborne went for an avant-garde look with tight jeans and interesting jackets -- but John's hat may have pushed the look a little overboard. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)
BEST: Hayley Orrantia looked sweet in a purple dress. (Photo by Michael Loccisano/Getty Images)
WORST: Singer-songwriter Chase Bryant took a change with a teal suit jacket. We actually like the look, but the buttons died to match on his shirt are a miss. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)
