Kelsea Ballerini Channels Her Inner Reese Witherspoon In New Video

Kelsea Ballerini nailed it!

The country star turned to Instagram on Wednesday (October 28) to share a video of herself as she channeled Reese Witherspoon's Legally Blonde character, Elle Woods. Wearing an adorable pink blazer dress with white heels, Ballerini recreated the iconic "bend and snap" scene from the movie.

In the clip, Ballerini is seen standing on the steps as she turned around with an excited expression on her face. She then started to lip sync Witherspoon's character as she explains how to do the "bend and snap." The country star gives a demonstration of how the move is done, leaning forward with her leg straight before quickly standing back up and pulling her arms in toward her chest.

The post, which Ballerini tagged Witherspoon in, has received much love from her 2.2 million Instagram followers. "Omg legend. Just a legend literally," one fan commented, while another wrote, "LEGEND. This is the greatest thing!"

"I am living for this," another fan wrote, while someone else pointed out how similar Ballerini and Witherspoon look, writing, "You and Reese could be sisters!!"

Witherspoon replied herself writing, "Works every time honey!!," alongside a heart emoji and a nail painting emoji.

Musically, Ballerini recently released her album, ballerini, which is a reimagined version of her recent album, kelsea, released in March of 2020. Ballerini features all 13 songs on Kelsea with different keys, temps, melodies, lyrics and production. She altered each song intentionally to focus more on telling a story.

Ballerini explained of the projects, "To me, Kelsea is glitter. She's bold, effervescent and her dreams are boundless. She's who I want to be. But Ballerini, she's emotional, vulnerable, soft. She observes her surroundings and chooses her words carefully. She's who I am."

On Friday (October 23), Ballerini was able to return to the stage with her band during the 2020 iHeartCountry Festival.

The country star delivered a five-song performance featuring several special guest stars. She kicked off the set with a performance of her hit song, "Peter Pan" followed by a live collaboration of "The Other Girl" featuring Avenue Beat. Ballerini then slowed things down as she took center stage with just her guitar to single her hit, "homecoming queen?"

Following the big night, Ballerini turned to Instagram to share her thoughts and feelings on reuniting with her band and crew. "I’ll spare you the sap, but playing a show with my band and crew brought very real tears to my eyes," she wrote alongside a series of photos from the evening. "Thank you @iheartcountry for allowing us to safely and virtually play some music- it felt like MAGIC. (Also thank you to the astronomically talented @avenuebeat for joining me) 📸 @josephllanes"
