Kelsea Ballerini is a Swiftie like the rest of us.
The “Peter Pan” singer stopped her own Heartfirst Tour show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, over the weekend to inquire about another concert happening across the country – Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated Eras Tour.
“Can I just level with you for a minute? Is anyone stalking the Eras Tour? Has it started?” Ballerini, 29, asked the crowd inside Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena.
“I’m gonna stalk it after this but I just have one question. Has she … is ‘Cruel Summer’ on the setlist?”
Concertgoers screamed excitedly, confirming Swift did indeed perform the catchy track from her seventh studio album, “Lover.”
“It is?!” an ecstatic Ballerini responded, blowing a kiss and bowing down. “Wow, that’s my Super Bowl, I gotta be honest. Alright. Wow. That’s all I needed to know. Thank you for that. Live updates.”
Ballerini has notoriously been a fan of Swift’s for years. The country star even performed with the “Bad Blood” singer during The 1989 World Tour in Nashville, Tenn., in 2015.
“The first time I ever met this artist was eight years ago when she was standing in line to meet me in a meet and greet line at CMA Music Fest,” Swift said on stage at the Bridgestone Arena at the time.
“Guys, this is her very first time performing in this arena. Please make some noise for my friend, I wish she was my sister, Kelsea Ballerini!”
As previously reported, Swift, 33, kicked off her Eras Tour Friday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., performing a three-hour show that included hits like “Love Story,” “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” “You Need to Calm Down,” “Blank Space,” “Look What You Made Me Do,” “22” and “Karma.”
Emma Stone was in the audience and went viral after videos surfaced of her “losing her mind,” as one fan perfectly put it, while Swift sang “You Belong With Me” and “Fearless.”
“No thoughts just emma stone performing to taylor swift,” a second fan wrote on Twitter in response to the clips, with another adding, “EMMA STONE YOU ARE JUST LIKE ME.”

Writer Sam Greisman also chimed in, tweeting, “Unfortunately very into the clips of Emma Stone going full ham at the Taylor Swift concert last night.”
While confirming her Eras Tour back in November, Swift described it via Instagram as “a journey through the musical eras of [her] career (past and present!).”
The US leg of the Eras Tour wraps Wednesday, Aug. 9, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
