Kelsea Ballerini Takes Another Shot At Morgan Evans On SNL, Adds New Verse To “Blindsided”

Kelsea Ballerini isn’t holding back.

She appeared on Saturday Night Live for her musical debut this past weekend, alongside host and Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl-winning tight end Travis Kelce, to support her recent Rolling Up The Welcome Mat EP.

She put it out last month on Valentine’s Day, which included a short film to go along with the songs speaking directly about her public divorce from fellow country singer Morgan Evans.

And last week, he put out his own five-part docuseries focusing on his viral tune “Over For You,” which questions when Kelsea decided their marriage was over, as he has noted that he felt “blindsided” by the whole divorce.

Kelsea appeared on Alex Cooper’s very popular Call Her Daddy podcast prior to this and said he knew the breakup was coming and they had in-depth conversations about it, so it’s pretty much a he said, she said situation at this point.

And notably during her aforementioned SNL performance, Kelsea added a new verse to the end of a song called “Blindsided,” directly responding to Morgan’s aforementioned ballad.

She tacked on the following lines to the end of the song to sing during the live show:

“Now you’re singing it loud on the radio
You couldn’t say it to my face
You would have searched the whole world over?
Yeah, sure, okay
Now you’re singing it loud on the radio
Like you’re the only heart that breaks
You would have searched the whole world over?
Yeah, sure, okay.”

She’s addressing the lyrics in Morgan’s song, which say:

“I would have searched the whole world over for you
Took a flight through the night to be that shoulder for you.”

It kinda feels like there’s really not much love lost anymore between these two at this point, and we’ll see how much the back-and-forth goes on…

At the very least, it’s certainly getting both of them a lot of press attention, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Morgan respond to this SNL moment in the near future, even though he’s overall been quieter about the details of what happened between the two of them.

Kelsea also performed a stripped-back, piano version of “Penthouse”:
