William Shatner Dressed Up as a Stormtrooper and Sang "Girl Crush" During The CMA Awards

I don't know a lot of country music fans who are into movies like Star Trek and Star Wars, but for some reason last night during the CMA Music Awards, William Shatner came out on stage dressed up as a Stormtrooper and sang the song "Girl Crush."

I guess country music is trying to appeal to the geek crowd now? The whole show opened up with a brief Star Wars skit about a canceled Star Wars skit, and Carrie Underwood was dressed as Princess Leia. It was really weird, but it got even weirder when Shatner showed up, 

You can watch the whole opening of the show in the video below. I'm just curious: are any of you readers fans of country music?
