Kelsea Ballerini & Halsey Add Some Pop to the 2020 CMT Music Awards With ‘The Other Girl’

Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey teamed up once again, this time to perform their song “The Other Girl” at the 2020 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (Oct. 21).

The performance, which was taped in Los Angeles, kicked off with Ballerini singing at an empty bar littered with peanut shells, with Halsey in the dark behind the bar. The “Life’s a Mess” singer later comes into the light and hops up onto the bar to sing her verses.

“Is it me? Is it you? Tell me who/ Who’s the other girl?/ Who’s the first? Who’s the fool?/ Who’s the diamond? Who’s the pearl?/ Are you mad? Me too/ And I wonder in his world/ Is it me? Is it you?/ Who’s the other girl?” the pals sang together for the chorus from the single of Ballerini’s third studio album, Kelsea.

The duo — who met two years ago in Nashville and hit it off during a night of drinking and karaokeing — were nominated for CMT performance of the year for “Graveyard” from CMT Crossroads.

The event was hosted by Kane Brown, Ashley McBryde, and Modern Family star Sarah Hyland. The show, which featured both live and pre-taped segments, was filmed in Nashville and various venues around Tennessee. Originally scheduled for June 3, the fan-voted awards show was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
