ABC/Image Group LA

What’s it like to win a major accolade and then perform with one of the biggest stars in pop music on one of country’s biggest awards shows? Well, you can see for yourself in Kelsea Ballerini’s new backstage photo diary, now posted online.

The 22-year-old already knew she was a winner going into the night, since the Academy of Country Music handed out its New Female Vocalist of the Year trophy ahead of time. You can witness her transformation from fresh-faced girl in a plaid shirt to red carpet glamazon, as she goes through at least three looks, poses with performance partner Nick Jonas, and stops to scarf down a bag of Doritos and a Diet Dr. Pepper along the way.
