Kelly Clarkson has always had a knack for delivering incredible covers. She first shared her talent with the world on “American Idol” back in 2002, and 20 years later, she continues to shine on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” delivering memorable renditions of everything from Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” to Lady Gaga‘s “Stupid Love” — she’s even covered Rihanna‘s saucy “B*tch Better Have My Money” and her iconic “We Found Love.”
Of course, Clarkson has her own selection of beloved original music, and she continues to breathe new life into her own songs, collaborating with Smith on a powerful rendition of “Breakaway” earlier in October. She’s also become a beloved talk show host, and she’s returning to “The Voice” as a judge for its 23rd season alongside Chance the Rapper and Niall Horan.
But out of all her many talents, there’s something so special and unique about a Clarkson cover, which is why we’ve rounded up a selection of just a few of the times Clarkson sang another pop star’s song . . . and totally killed it. Scroll through to listen to them all now.
