After the video of this duet was shared, fans have called it “spiritual” and “magical.”

Broadway star, actor, and singer Ben Platt is on his The Honeymind Tour following a hugely successful 180-show residency at The Palace Theater in New York City. Platt brought a surprise guest to the famous Broadway stage at each show and even helped some singers make their Broadway debuts!

Some notable guests included Kacey Musgraves, Kristin Chenoweth, Tori Kelly, Meghan Trainor, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Hudson, and more.

While there aren’t special guests at every night of his tour, he did bring out a surprise singer for the July 6th show.

Because The Ryman Auditorium is considered the “Mother Church of Country Music,” he had to bring out an accomplished country star to sing with him. None other than Kelsea Ballerini joined him for a duet to “Landslide.”

The song was famously written by Stevie Nicks and first recorded by her band Fleetwood Mac in the 1970s. It is considered one of the best songs of all time, with Rolling Stone even ranking it number 163 on their list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The Smashing Pumpkins later covered the song in 1994, but the song really took new heights when The Chicks (formerly Dixie Chicks) released their version in 2002.

The Nashville audience was surprised by the ACM and CMA Award winner and her performance with Platt was so memorable that people were calling it their “Roman Empire,” which is a social media trend about how often you think about certain events.

The audience was blown away by the live performance, but so were fans who saw the performance online. See some of their reactions below.

“The harmonies with this duo was UNMATCHED live”

“this is my new roman empire”

“This was like one of the best things I’ve witnessed ever”

“I didn’t know how much I needed this??”

“This is what I needed to hear before bed. Thanks for the lullaby.”

“This was the most beautiful surprise, thank you for such an incredible evening”
