What a time to be Kelly Clarkson.
Videos by American Songwriter
In a week that saw Clarkson surprised by pop-punk rocker Machine Gun Kelly (Machine Gun Kelly Clarkson, anyone?), the singer and co-host of American Song Contest and coach of The Voice gave her fans four separate stellar cover performances in her regular “Kellyoke” series.
Clarkson (whose birthday is Sunday, April 24— MGK’s was Friday, April 22, hence the surprise visit from her fellow Taurus—began the week on her popular daytime television show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, with a rendition of the song “I Ran (So Far Away)” by A Flock Of Seagulls.
Check out that earworm of a song below.
As the week progressed, Clarkson offered a number of other standout performances, including a cover of “Get Down On It” by Kool & The Gang. She also performed a cover of “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It For The World” by Ronnie Milsap and “Edge of Seventeen” by Stevie Nicks.
Check out those songs below (Clarkson covering Nicks is just a match made in musical heaven.)
