As people continue to salivate over the Chris Stapleton/Justin Timberlake performance and the Blake Shelton/Miranda Lambert drama, everyone seems to have forgotten one thing.

Lambert wasn’t the only country powerhouse getting over a breakup looking fabulous. Just this past August, McEntire and her husband and manager Narvel Blackstock announced they were separating after 26 years of marriage.

But McEntire showed us all that she has no time for crying.

In fact, McEntire gets our vote for the second best performance of the night, tearing into a rousing performance alongside country legends Brooks & Dunn on a mash up of her 1994 hit “Why Haven’t I Heard From You” and Brooks & Dunn’s 1995 hit “Play Something Country.”

It was the perfect indirect promo for the “REBA, BROOKS & DUNN: Together in Vegas” residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which will now run through May 2016.
