Kelsea Ballerini Hit in Face With Object While Performing
When Kelsea Ballerini was struck in the face while performing onstage in Idaho, she momentarily ended the show. On Wednesday, June 28, the country-pop singer performed at the Outlaw Field of the Idaho Botanical Garden in Boise. Ballerini was struck in the face with an unidentified object that was hurled by a fan during a performance of her 2022 song “If You Go Down.”
The 29-year-old singer had to quickly interrupt her live performance to respond to the tragic incident. She first carried on playing the acoustic guitar while facing the audience from the rear of the stage before signaling “stop” with her hand and leaving. Ballerini commented about the particular incident when she returned to the stage, according to a TikTok posted by a spectator during the performance.
“Can we just talk about what happened?” Ballerini addressed the crowd. “All I care about is keeping everyone safe. If you ever don’t feel safe, please let someone around you know.”
“If anyone’s pushing too much or you just have that gut feeling, just always flag it. Don’t throw things. You know?”
Although it has not been officially confirmed, some commenters have claimed that the object thrown at the performer was a friendship bracelet.
A video of the incident was shared on social media by Ballerini’s official fan account with a disclaimer about throwing anything at or to artists.
Kelsea Central shared a post on Twitter:
Guys. I know we all mean well. We all want to show Kelsea love the best way we know how, and shower her with all the gifts. But throwing things on stage where artists are already so vulnerable is NOT the move. If you can’t hand it to her, there are so many other options. Lord,… pic.twitter.com/oIgy2JDn3V

This comes after a number of other recent instances of female musicians being harassed or having items hurled at them while performing. During a performance in New York, Bebe Rexha was hit in the head with a phone, resulting in a black eye and the need for stitches.
Ava Max received a stage invasion slap a few days later when singing in Los Angeles. Then, as Pink was performing at the British Summer Time festival in London’s Hyde Park, a fan dumped their mother’s ashes onto the stage, which confused Pink.
