Kelsea Ballerini made her first appearance on SNL as a musical guest last night. Hosted by Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce, the latest SNL episode and Ballerini’s performance got everyone talking long after the airing time.
Kelsea Ballerini’s Songs
On March 4th, Ballerini performed her song “Blindsided” live. Many fans and media outlets have assumed that the song references her divorce from Morgan Evans and might even be her response to her ex-husband’s song “Over For You”. The song lyrics that spark such assumption are: “I told you what I needed, didn’t have to read my mind / So, were you blindsided or were you just blind?” Ballerini performed the song while wearing a zebra-like black jumpsuit and sitting in front of a screen with a display of spooky silhouettes.
The Tennese-native singer also sang a vocal-and-piano version of “Penthouse”, a song from her EP “Rolling Up the Welcome Mat”. To match the white piano, Ballerini wore a white dress that complemented her minimalistic aesthetic. Her singing was full of emotions, especially during the chorus “One day, the curtain started coming down / You changed the second we were moving out / I guess wrong can look alright.” The popular magazine People has praised Ballerini for turning heartbreak into art.
Kelsea Ballerini Chase Stoke PDA
The night before her SNL debut, Ballerini was spotted walking around the streets of Manhattan, New York City with Chase Stokes. As reported by US Weekly, a day before their leisurely walk the pair were seen kissing at the Madison Square Garden.
Chase Stokes and Kelsea Ballerini have confirmed their relationship status, both through Ballerini’s podcast revelation on February 22nd and indirectly via their Instagram photos and comment section. Stokes has been very supportive of Ballerini, as he said in an interview ahead of his girlfriend’s debut on SNL that he was rooting for her.
