Move over David Blaine. There’s a new magician in town, and her name is Kelsea Ballerini. At the emotional height of the country star’s 2023 VMAs performance, she performed a costume change so amazing it must be magic.
For the majority of the set, Ballerini is seen wearing a white floor-length gown. But as she approaches the big, climactic vocals that punctuate her divorce power balled “Penthouse,” Ballerini briefly disappears into a cloud of smoke before reappearing in a Posh Spice-style black strapless mini dress.
