Kelsea Ballerini stopped her show in New Jersey to ask about Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in Arizona.TikTok

Kelsea Ballerini is a Swiftie just like the rest of us.

The “Peter Pan” singer stopped her own Heartfirst Tour show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, over the weekend to hear about another concert happening across the country — Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated Eras Tour.

“May I level with you for a moment? Is there anyone pursuing the Era’s Tour? Has it begun?” Ballerini, 29, asked the crowd inside Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena.

“I’m going to stalk this, but I just have one question. Does she…is ‘Cruel Summer’ on the set list?”

Concertgoers screamed in delight, confirming that Swift was indeed performing the catchy track from her seventh studio album, “Lover.”

“It is?!” replied an ecstatic Ballerini, kissing and bowing. “Wow, this is my Super Bowl, I’ll be honest. All right. Wow. That’s all I needed to know. Thanks for that. Live updates.”

Ballerini has been a notorious 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 stood 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 on Friday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, performing a three-hour show that included hits like “Love Story,” “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) , ” “You Gotta Calm Down,” “Blank Space,” “Look What You Made Me Do,” “22” and “Karma.”

Emma Stone was in the audience and went viral videos appeared 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 for taylor swift,” another fan wrote on Twitter in response to the clips, while another added: “EMMA STONE YOU ARE JUST LIKE ME.”
