NEW YORK (AP) — While Americans have doubts about how much they should trust the "news media" in general, a poll by the Media Insight Project released Wednesday suggests they have a higher opinion of the sources they personally rely upon to follow the world.

The CMT Music Awards are right around the corner — and some of music’s biggest stars are teaming up for a few showstopping collaborations!

The Chainsmokers and Florida Georgia Line will take to the stage together at the star-studded award ceremony on June 7 in Nashville, possibly to perform their duet “Last Day Alive,” officials announced on Wednesday.

As if such a dreamy mash-up weren’t enough, Lady Antebellum is slated to team up with the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire. Country music royalty Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood will perform live together — a first for the duo on any CMT stage.

The award show may mark the first joint performance between Underwood and Urban on the network’s stage, but the singers are no strangers to bringing down the house together. At April’s Academy of Country Music Awards, the pair performed a rousing version of their duet “The Fighter.”

Meanwhile, Lady Antebellum’s collaboration with Earth, Wind & Fire will precede the iconic R&B band’s upcoming CMT Crossroads concert, Billboard reports.

This year’s CMT Music Awards performers include country superstars Blake SheltonLuke Bryan and Miranda Lambert, along with Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett.

The 2017 CMT Music Awards will air live from Nashville on CMT on June 7 at 8:00 p.m. EST.

Hell hath no fury like a castaway scorned.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday’s Survivor: Game Changers finale, Sarah Lacina goes off on presumed ally Cirie Fields for a fumbled attempt to oust Lacina last week by using the very voting advantage Lacina had given to Fields for safe-keeping. The catch? It was non-transferrable. (Busted!)

“That was my advantage to use,” she says to Fields just moments after the twisty tribal council. “We need to talk about this stuff if we’re in an alliance. Because I wanted to use that another time, and now I can’t because of you.”

But Lacina got her very unexpected — and instant — revenge by taking out Fields’ pal Michaela Bradshaw.

“I felt betrayed by Cirie at tribal council for targeting my Steal a Vote , so I targeted Michaela because Michaela is Cirie’s right-hand man,” she explains in an interview. “But now I don’t know who I can trust. Fortunately, I still have the Legacy Advantage, which can be played at six, so I know I’m safe.”

But could Lacina’s safety signal the end for Fields?

“I’m in a lot of trouble right now,” she admits. “Sarah is really pissed and thinks I’m trying to pull the okey-doke on her. It kind of felt like, ‘Whoa! I’m trying to do you a favor.’ But, as the saying goes, ‘No good deed goes unpunished.’ ”

The Survivor: Game Changers finale airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Last Sunday, a video went viral during Mike Pence’s commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana but it didn’t center on the U.S. Vice President speaking, but on the large group of about 150 graduates walking out during his address.

Although it might seem like a spur-of-the-moment effort against the VP, the walkout was actually organized by students in the weeks beforehand. Once graduates found out that Pence would be the speaker at their ceremony, a group of students planned out the moment carefully while answering whatever questions any concerned students might have.

One of the students, Xitalaly Estrada, was one of the main organizers of the walkout as president of the Latino Student Alliance on the university’s campus.

“Initially when the invite went out, we were all a little more than hesitant to attend, especially because this administration has been denigrating people of color and minority groups,” the 21-year-old told mitú.

Her family, who both speak little of English, did not attend the ceremony but opted to attend other graduation events as requested by Estrada. “My parents are immigrants and they’re in constant state of discomfort,” she said. “I don’t think my parents have ever felt comfortable in this country.”

The graduate, who studied Political Science and Latino Studies, wanted to represent her family in the decision she made to spearhead the walkout. She added, “My biggest concern was that this day, that was supposed to be for my family and their sacrifices that led me to be able to graduate from the University of Notre Dame, would be overshadowed by someone who has openly endorsed their denigration and has corroborated their marginalization as an immigrant group, as Mexicans, as, at one point, people who worked in the fields, as people who work in the service sector, and they would have to hear that person speak at my commencement.”

Latinos weren’t the only ones to walk out during the commencement; LGBTQ and other minority groups took part in the movement.
