Special Look: Nick Jonas, Dan + Shay Rehearse for ACM Awards Performance

Certainly not short on superstar country acts, the performance lineup for Sunday’s 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards also features a pair of representatives from the pop world.

One is Christina Aguilera. Neither CBS nor the ACM is confirming anything beyond the fact that Aguilera will join surprise guests on stage, but many sources have confirmed that the pop powerhouse will perform alongside Rascal Flatts.

The other pop ambassador is Nick Jonas. Both CBS and the ACM have long confirmed that he will be performing with Dan + Shay.

Nick Jonas, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney worked through their number at Friday’s official rehearsal. Photos from that rehearsal follow.

CBS’ broadcast of the ACM Awards begins at 8PM ET on Sunday.
