Kelsea Ballerini, Hailee Steinfeld and Sofia Carson are bringing the girl power to the Radio Disney Music Awards!

The trio of singers -- who have each been musically influenced by Britney Spears -- are set to team up for a medley performance in tribute to the 35-year-old songstress, who will receive the RDMA's first-ever "Icon" award this weekend. Spears is being honored for a career that "transcends popular culture," with her connection to Radio Disney dating back to 1998.

In the video above, Ballerini, 23, adorably reveals the "embarrassing story" of how she learned to deliver the classic "Britney Spears growl" as a kid. See the hilarious confession in ET's exclusive clip.

Descendants 2 star Carson and GRAMMY nominee Ballerini are each pulling double duty as co-hosts of the ceremony, along with Jordan Fisher, Alex Aiono and Jenna Ortega. The show will be broadcast on Sunday, April 30, at 7 p.m. ET on multiple Disney-branded platforms.
