While promoting her hosting gig on ABC’s new show Greatest Hits, Kelsea Ballerini let a little secret slip.
When asked about touring with Rascal Flatts and her plans after the tour, she responded by saying, “I do that through September and then I do a headline tour. I’m going to try that out for the first time later this year. Should be fun!”
The singer later took to twitter to announce her flub, saying, “Hehe. Totally wasn’t supposed to say anything. Surprise. Details soon.”
Kelsea and Arsenio Hall host Greatest Hits, which debuts tonight (June 30th) at 9 p.m. CT on ABC with special guests Pitbull, REO Speedwagon, Ray Parker Jr., Jason Derulo, Kenny Loggins, Kim Carnes, Rick Springfield and Kool & the Gang.
The show relives the hits of the past few decades, uniting today’s hitmakers with the artists who made the songs famous.
Since Kelsea’s new to the gig, she says it’s great to have a veteran by her side.
“Arsenio is amazing. He’s such a pro. Every time we walk out into the live audience they do the ‘Hoo, hoo, hoo!’ thing. It’s amazing,” she told Billboard. “I’d never really hosted anything like that before obviously, but he’s so cool because he’s done it forever… And we just kind of use the prompter as a guideline and just laugh the whole time — which I hope translates well, because we have fun!”
The “Peter Pan” songstress gives us a preview of what we can expect, and promises she’ll do some singing herself.
“We’ve had incredible artists on the show. I got to sing a mash-up of three of my favorite songs — one country, two from other genres, just mashed up together. The show is so cool because it’s just celebrating music and big songs that have made an impact on our life, so I’m excited for everyone to see it.”
