So how did she pull off the stunt?  Kelsea took to TikTok following the show to explain that the dress included a tearaway function.  At the pivotal moment, she pulls off the white dress and it’s whisked away behind her as she continues on with the performance.

She captioned the video, “telling my future children i was once houdini”
