She’s still the one!

After a decade away from the Academy of Country Music Awards stage (or, “10 freakin’ years,” as pointed out by co-host Blake Shelton), Shania Twain returned to the Las Vegas awards show Sunday night.

And all we have to say is this: Exactly how long is a decade?

The country singer – who presented entertainer of the year, the night’s top honor, to co-host Luke Bryan – looked as fabulous and flawless as ever in a black strapless dress, over-the-knee boots and an untamed wavy hairdo.

Of course, the “You’re Still the One” singer (who took home the major award herself in 1999) has seen plenty of milestones in that time frame: a divorce, a new marriage and her own Las Vegas show. (She has also seemingly ditched her flat iron.)

“Thank you,” Twain, 47, told the audience as she took the stage. “It’s just so great to be back here after all these years at the ACMs.”
