Tegan And Sara React To Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Closer’ Cover: ‘We’re Clearly Flipping Out’

You likely haven’t seen a Tegan and Sara cover “closer” to perfection than this one by Kelly Clarkson.

Clarkson and “The Kelly Clarkson Show” band kicked off Thursday’s episode with a cover of the Canadian sisters’ “Closer”. The upbeat, rhythmic cover is the perfect complement to a much-needed cup of coffee.

Tegan and Sara were wowed by the cover.

“As long time MASSIVE fans of Kelly, we’re clearly flipping out over her cover of ‘Closer’,” the duo said. “It’s always a surreal experience to hear an artist of her calibre belting out something you wrote in your closet and never imagined coming out of anyone’s lungs but your own.”

“She added her own twist and flare and absolutely killed it,” Tegan and Sara admitted. “Honestly, she sings it better than we do. And we’re fine with that.”
