One princess of country is covering the princess of pop.
On Thursday night’s episode of Greatest Hits, Kelsea Ballerini sings Britney Spears’ smash debut single “…Baby One More Time,” and EW has an exclusive preview.
Ballerini sticks with her roots in the beginning of her medley, belting out Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” before going pop-rock with Maroon 5’s “This Love.” Donning a partially nude-colored bodysuit Spears would undoubtedly approve, Ballerini transitions to Spears’ iconic single as background dancers work the stage.
“When I’m not with you, I lose my mind,” sings Ballerini with her country twang.
Airing Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC, the latest episode of Greatest Hits also finds Fifth Harmony covering Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name,” “Independent Women,” “Bootylicious,” and “Survivor,” plus Little Big Town interpreting Alicia Keys’ “Fallin.'” Additional performers include Zendaya, Mario, Rachel Platten, Lee Ann Womack, Pat Monahan, and Kenny Loggins.
