Kelly Clarkson is paying tribute to an icon from the ’90’s.
The singer lent her vocals to a show-stopping performance of Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic” on the “Kellyoke” segment of “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.
Clarkson gave the song a more dramatic spin as she sang the beginning of the song like a ballad, accompanied only by her music director Jason Halbert on the piano.
As she hit the second chorus, however, the percussion and guitar joined in and the performance went hard with a rock vibe.
The 40-year-old belted out the lyrics, singing, “It’s like rain on your wedding day/It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid/It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take/And who would’ve thought? It figures.”
“Ironic” came off of Morissette’s 1995 album Jagged Little Pill and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart at no. 4 in 1996. It stayed on the charts for 32 weeks in a row. It won Album of the Year at the 1996 Grammys, making Morissette the youngest recipient at that time at 21.
