On Monday (April 17), Clarkson took on a bit of a lesser-known artist Tom Odell. Known for his emotive piano songs, Odell’s work fit perfectly in Clarkson’s large skillset. Check out the swelling, emotional song below. This is one of the hall of fame Kellyoke offerings from Clarkson, to be sure.

If viewers thought she couldn’t top Monday, Clarkson brought out a performance of her own music, her new single, “Mine.” The song has a Twin Peaks bass line but a Coldplay-like acoustic guitar and choir performance. It’s a lovely, rich composition from the artist who went through a rather public divorce. The new songs are her creative processing of that, Clarkson has said.

On Wednesday, Clarkson took on another operatic, dramatic number, “Faithfully” by Journey, featuring guest keys player, the young adorable Jude Keyz.

The train kept rolling this Clarkson’s daytime talk show, as she opened Thursday’s show with a cover of the classic good mood song “La Bamba” by Ritchie Valens. Singing in Spanish, the song was as fun as you think it is.

To conclude the week, Clarkson covered Coldplay’s song, “Magic.” Check out that dreamy number below.
