Country newcomer Julianne Hough–a Dancing With the Stars champ–ripped her Zuhair Murad dress as she took the stage at the 44th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

“It’s a good thing I ripped my dress because now I have something else to think about,” an overwhelmed and tearful Julianne told the audience as she accepted her trophy for Top New Artist.
