Kelsea Ballerini took a moment to remind fans what a Taylor Swift country song sounds like. Over the weekend, the Tennessee native took to her acoustic guitar to give a country spin to Taylor’s single “Delicate.”

Wednesday was an important day for a number of high school students across the U.S. as many participated in National Walkout Day. Although certain schools threatened to penalize students who walked out, many Hollywood stars voiced their support for the act of protest against gun violence.
Nick Jonas’ 2015 was complicated, but his 2016 was simply disappointing. Following up on his album and tour with Demi Lovato, it looked like Nick was going to be shut out of all of the major award shows. Even the award shows started to feel bad as MTV gave Nick a consolation prize after he was snubbed and Radio Disney gave Nick a “Hero” award.
However, Nick has a chance to bring home some more hardware coming up. He’s been nominated for the 2017 CMT Performance of the Year award for his performance of “Close” with Thomas Rhett featuring Danielle Bradbery on “CMT Crossroads.” Nick is up against some stiff competition in the category, though, squaring off against country music heavyweight Jason Aldean, Meghan Trainor’s performance with Jill Scott and Kelsea Ballerini and a duet from Alicia Keys and Nick’s go-to sad time musician, Marren Morris.
Watch Nick and Thomas perform together below, plus see Nick’s Instagram post about the nomination. Vote on all of the CMT Award categories including Nick’s here.

The iHeartRadio Music Awards happened Sunday night, and the red carpet was a chance for stars to show off the outfits that didn’t make the cut for the MTV Video Music Awards. Two standout looks came from Katy Perry and Halsey, who both rocked short blond hair. It was a big chance for Katy to show off her freshly chopped locks and try to put those whispers about 2012 Miley Cyrus vibes to bed.
Halsey’s hair was actually longer than it’s been in a while, but she pulled another bold move on the red carpet. Sporting another monochromatic look, Halsey was wearing yellow pants and a matching jacket. Her top was the same shade, but it was also a belt. The constrictive piece didn’t cover much, but added some lift to the look.
Other notable attendees included Ed Sheeran and a dapper Joe Jonas. Fifth Harmony was there with Normani Kordei looking especially fierce. Noah Cyrus brought her collaborator Labrinth for their performance at the award show. She also brought some boots that would make Lady Gaga jealous.
And even though Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid couldn’t make it, Kelsea Ballerini held things down for Taylor Swift’s squad with a glittery blue body suit.

After Gigi Hadid revealed Taylor Swift was back in the studio and Kesha teased her collab with a “Grammy award winning secret person,” fans have been foaming at the mouth for new Taylor music. They have been so thirsty, in fact, that they started to believe that Taylor collaborated with Kelsea Ballerini.
The country singer shared a video via Snapchat with an audio clip that Swifties began thinking featured both Kelsea and Taylor.
