Luke Bryan won Entertainer of the Year, which few would have bet on in Las Vegas if gambling on awards shows was something people did.

Despite the accuracy (or lack of accuracy) of these predictions for the 2013 ACM Awards, one thing is certain: one group of country fans will be ecstatic come Monday morning, while another will be furious that their favorite wasn't recognized for his or her talent and achievements. Only one out of every group of five can take the trophy for Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist and the other top prizes.

Tate Stevens vs. Tracy Lawrence – The Showdown

It's difficult to label Tate Stevens' Friday Showdown win over Justin Moore's new song an upset. After all, the 'X Factor' winner proved he's a fan-favorite by winning the singing competition. The response to 'Power of a Love Song' is still impressive, however.
