Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” could be the best thing we’ve heard all day.
The “American Idol” alum debuted her edgy cover of Gaga’s hit during Tuesday’s episode of her new talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, and wowed the crowd.
Every episode of Clarkson’s new show will kick off with a “Kellyoke” segment, which has the host singing different songs. We first heard Dolly Parton’s “9 To 5” during her debut episode before “Bad Romance” during episode two. Wednesday’s episode will feature an entirely different track sung by Clarkson.
Kelly’s stripped-back version transforms the pop hit into what feels like a rock-and-roll classic.
The short clip has Clarkson dancing, and singing, through her audience before giving a cardboard cut-out of Meryl Streep a little tap.
