Kelsea Ballerini Recreates Shania Twain’s ‘Man, I Feel Like a Woman’ Video at ACM Honors
Kelsea Ballerini attended the 2022 ACM Honors on Wednesday, Aug. 24 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, and not only did she hit the red carpet wearing Shania Twain's white 1999 Grammy gown, but she also performed a tribute to Twain, who won the ACM Poet's Award at the ceremony.
Ballerini took the stage to recreate the memorable music video for Twain's 1999 hit, "Man, I Feel Like a Woman."
Fox shared part of Ballerini's performance online after it aired on Tuesday night (Sept. 13). In the clip, Ballerini appears wearing one of the outfits Twain wore in the original video, with long black coat, white-collared shirt, black tie, top hat and all. Ballerini dances as she sings the iconic song, and male backup dancers from Twain's Las Vegas residency dance around her.
Later in her performance, Ballerini shed the black coat, tie and top hat and performed in a black strapless dress.
Twain received the ACM Poet's Award alongside songwriter Sonny Throckmorton, and Twain and Ballerini were seen palling around on the red carpet prior to the show.
Ballerini wore Twain's 1999 Grammy dress, which was on loan to her from the Grammy Museum for 24 hours. Twain arrived in a black dress with long train, along with leopard print boots and cowboy hat.
The annual ACM Honors is a ceremony to celebrate special award recipients, off-camera ACM winners and ACM Industry and Studio Recording Awards honorees. Other artists honored at the ceremony include Miranda Lambert, Morgan Wallen, Chris Stapleton and Hardy.
ACM Honors 2022 aired on Fox on Tuesday night at 8PM ET.
