Kelly Clarkson was dubbed the "Queen of covers" for her incredible rendition of another artist's song.
Clarkson is still going strong years after shocking people with her powerful voice on "America's Got Talent."
Back then, she had to sing other people's songs to prove her abilities. Now, she has a long list of originals in her own right.
Still, the star treated fans to her own version of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's hit "Shallow." The song came out with the 2018 movie "A Star Is Born."
Clarkson, 36, chose to sing it at her "Meaning of Life" tour on Friday. Before she began, she praised Lady Gaga.
“This chick is amazing. We’re really different, but at the same time, we’re really similar in the fact that she just loves music, and that’s why she’s doing what she’s doing."
Clarkson then jokingly said, “I hope I don’t suck, and if I do, I hope she doesn’t see it.”
She went on to belt out powerful vocals, stayed in tune, and soothed the ears of her audience. When she reached the high notes, she again showed off her powerful pipes.
Online, the clip went viral. One YouTube upload of it already has 1.7 million views. An inspired Twitter user said that she thinks there's nothing the singer can't do.
In addition to her tour, Clarkson is a co-host of the TV talent show, "The Voice." Recently, she paid tribute to co-host Blake Shelton in Los Angeles.
She sang his hit "Boys 'Round Here," with her own take on the lyrics. Clarkson's lines included: "show them boys how to four-wheel drive" and asking if the boys have been kissed by "red, red, red, red lips."
Last year, the show's season finale saw Clarkson joined by then co-host Jennifer Hudson. The two singers filled the hall as they gave the audience a once in a lifetime performance on December 18.
It happened while the results were being prepared. Clarkson and Hudson sang "O Holy Night" in honor of the Christmas season. The amazing duet captivated the audience, earning a standing ovation at the end.
