They say the third time is the charm, and that’s certainly true for Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan. Then again, they’re always pretty charming.

“Bluke” joined forces to host the ACM Awards for the third time in a row, and it was another night of bro banter and adorably bad jokes that left us hoping there’s a fourth time next year. Because who doesn’t love when co-hosts end the show with hugs and “I love you”s! Check out their top five moments:

1. They helped set a Guinness World Record:
Bluke informed the 70,252 people in the crowd that they all helped make history: “We are the most attended live awards show of all time. Give yourselves a hand,” Bryan told the audience. “Screw giving yourselves a hand, get yourselves a drink,” said Shelton.

2. The selfie:
Shelton and Bryan posed for the cutest selfie of the evening and helped #acmawards50 reach No. 1 on social media in the meantime. “Before the show began, Luke and I took a selfie – O-M-G! – and asked everyone to take a selfie of themselves here at AT&T Stadium,” said Shelton. “Thanks to you guys the ACMs are No. 1 at social media,” added Bryan.

3. Shelton helps Bryan have a bucket-list moment:
How cool is it to catch a football thrown by Cowboys QB Tony Romo? Well, Bryan can tell you – thanks to his co-host. “Hey, Tony, I’m sorry, I know this is weird will you just do me a solid?” Shelton asked the NFL star as an excited Bryan looked on. “Can you throw a pass to my buddy Luke here?” “I brought my sticky gloves,” added Bryan. To which Shelton replied, “You don’t need sticky gloves, your hands are already sticky.”

4. Blake declares himself the sexier co-host:
While introducing Bryan’s performance, Shelton told the audience, “It is my honor to introduce a man who has earned many honors, including four nominations this year. He also finished runner-up for tonight’s sexiest ACM co-host.”

5. Luke has some fun at a friend’s expense:
While introducing pal Jason Aldean’s performance, Bryan said, “It’s always a thrill to give a struggling artist a break, and this next guy is no exception, especially since I’m his personal hero. If you don’t believe me, take a look at this. If he keeps trying, he might just make something of his self someday.”
