Through the use of cutting-edge technology, the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live appeared “cross-country” on the Wednesday, November 5, 2014 episode in honor of the 2014 CMA Awards. Jimmy was simultaneously live on his show in Hollywood and transported to Nashville, Tennessee via hologram.
Later, Jimmy interviewed one of tonight's big CMA winners, Kacey Musgraves, when she appeared as a hologram beamed in live from Nashville. Conversely, Jimmy was transported to Nashville during the interview. The two had some fun trying to high five one another across the miles and Kacey even attempted to (virtually) pick Jimmy’s nose.
The musical guest on the show was CMA Awards winner Florida Georgia Line, who performed live at the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville and were projected as a hologram to Kimmel's outdoor stage in front of his Hollywood audience.
