Kathie Lee, Hoda, Obama and Romney make CMT cameo

You may have noticed some verrrrrry familiar faces in the intro to the CMT Awards last night. The spot saw Kristin Bell and Toby Keith debating who should host the show with opinions from Kathie Lee, Hoda, Willie Nelson, Mitt Romney, and President Obama (how often do you see those names in a sentence together?).

Of course, Kristin and Toby were set to emcee as a team from the beginning, but KLG and Hoda got in a nice little joke about having to share the spotlight with a co-host. Either way, that's a lot of star power there.
