Say it with us now. William Shatner boldly went where no man had gone before when, last night, Star Trek's legendary James T. Kirk joined Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley on stage during the opening of the Country Music Association Awards. Oh, and did we mention that he was wearing a Star Wars Stormtrooper costume, or that he referred to Underwood as Carrie Fisher? Well, he was -- and he did (though we're pretty sure that was a scripted joke). Shatner then went on to "sing" a bit of "Girl Crush" and praise the merits of "Shatting out loud." We're not sure if you had to see it to believe it or believe it to see it, but either way, it's worth checking out.
