Kelsea Ballerini to Perform Britney Spears Medley at Radio Disney Music Awards
Kelsea Ballerini kind of loves Britney Spears. Okay, she really loves Britney Spears, so much so that she'll showcase her fan know-how with a medley of her idol's songs at the upcoming 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.
Billboard reports that Ballerini will be joined by Hailee Steinfeld and Sofia Carson to perform several of Spears’ biggest hits in celebration of the pop singer receiving the inaugural Icon Award. The RDMA Icon Award is meant to honor an artist whose music and career transcend popular culture.
"She was also my first concert, she's a legend. She's also the queen of pop music and I adore Britney Spears," Ballerini says of Spears in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Perhaps Ballerini will showcase her Britney growl during her performance — surely she's perfected it by now?
Ballerini will also serve as host of the Radio Disney Music Awards on Saturday (April 29) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The awards show will air Sunday (April 30) at 7PM ET on Disney platforms.
This summer, she'll further hone her hosting skills alongside tourmate Thomas Rhett to co-host a CMA Fest 2017 TV special.
