For the final “ACM Flashbacks” performance of the night, Kelly Clarkson and ACM host Reba McEntire took it back to 1993 in more ways than one. The duo performed McEntire’s 1993 hit “Does He Love You” with McEntire taking the stage in the same infamous red dress she wore for the ACM Awards 25 years ago.

McEntire gave a shout out to the dress designer Sandy Spika moments after performing.
It’s no surprise that the two singers delivered a powerful performance of the classic duet. Not only are McEntire and Clarkson close friends, they’re also family. Clarkson is McEntire’s daughter-in-law.
Between hosting, performing, announcing awards and several costume changes, McEntire kept busy throughout the night. This was the singer’s 17th time hosting the ACM Awards.
