The seven-time Grammy winner joined forces with Lainey WilsonIngrid AndressMadeline Edwards and Morgan Wade at the 2023 CMT Music Awards on Sunday to perform her 1995 hit “You Oughta Know” to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of CMT’s Next Women of Country campaign.

Wilson, Wade, Edwards and Andress kicked off the song with a line each before Morissette — wearing a white T-shirt and flowing, sparkly black jacket with leather pants — eventually joined, and the women went on to blend their voices on the rest of the verses and choruses. As they performed, controlled flames burned behind them.

Morissette spoke to PEOPLE last year about the lasting impact of her third album Jagged Little Pill and how it opened the door for women to musically explore — and celebrate — darker, less-discussed subjects, including their own rage.

“I’m happy about the fact that, because I move a certain way on stage or sing a certain lyric, that it gives people permission… to feel all the stigmatized feelings: anger, sadness, depression, anxiety, ambivalence — all of these feelings that we’re told not to feel,” she said at the time.

The 2023 CMT Music Awards are airing live at 8 p.m. on CBS from the Moody Center in Austin, Texas.
