With Dave Haywood on piano, Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley led “What If I Never Get Over You,” beautifully harmonizing the first verse; Halsey joined them on the second. At the song’s end, the pop star began playing her guitar and led into her song “Graveyard.” On the chorus, she was joined by Scott and Kelley, who made a powerful case for a potential Lady Antebellum cover of the song.
