While Jerry Jones traveled all the way to Las Vegas to make the announcement, co-hosts Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton slightly stole his thunder by revealing the move at the top of the show.  After Luke made the announcement, Blake remarked on the rarity of having an awards ceremony at Cowboys Stadium, prompting Luke to joke that "you never see a playoff game there either."
