Kelly Clarkson conquered Halloween as she paid tribute to Bette Midler in a fabulous way.


Kelly Clarkson took Halloween to the next level on her show “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” and we absolutely love it!

As reported by PopCulture, the Grammy Award winner channeled her inner Better Midler as she opened her show with a cover version of Midler’s “I Put a Spell on You.” Midler made the song famous in the scary cult classic “Hocus Pocus.”

As seen in a video shared on Twitter, Clarkson brought her A-game in Bette’s character Winifred Sanderson’s iconic purple gown matched with a green embroidered cloak.

Her hair, however, was the highlight as “The Voice” coach rocked a dramatic, gigantic, bright red hair and matching red lipstick. Clarkson was not alone as she had her two backup singers dressed in matching witch outfits.


Kelly’s voice shone brightly as she hit all the possible notes while performing for her audience. Instead of going for Midler’s version of the hit song, Clarkson mesmerizes fans with the original mid-‘50s time by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.

While giving her rendition of her song, Clarkson walked among the cheering crowd and ended with a bang staring intensely at the camera.


It was indeed quite a performance as the video was retweeted more than 300 times and was liked more than a thousand times.

Bette was, no doubt, marveled by the performance as she praised Kelly writing:

“#KellyClarksonShow! Kelly, as Winnie! Fantastic!!”


An enthralled fan gushed:

“This is absolutely crazy. I don’t exaggerate when I say the best singer in the public eye.”


Another praised:

“Our Queen of Halloween is rocking this song!! I can only imagine what Christmas is gonna bring us!!”


As seen on IMDb, “Hocus Pocus” tells the story of a youngster who moved to Salem and struggled to fit in before bringing to life a trio of witches.

The 1993 comedy fantasy won the Saturn Award for Best Costumes and a Young Artist Awards for Best Youth Actress Leading Role in a Motion Picture Comedy.
