Kelly Clarkson Gives Taylor Swift’s ‘Delicate’ a Soulful Makeover [Watch]
Kelly Clarkson's latest installment of "Kelly-oke" has her bringing a unique spin to a Taylor Swift hit. The 37-year-old covered "Delicate" during Tuesday's (Nov. 5) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show.
The Voice coach begins the performance by singing in a recording studio, which slowly pans through the glass window to see the talk show host exit the recording booth to appear in front of her studio audience.
What first begins by showing off Clarkson's lower register and more subtle and vulnerable vocals quickly turns into a powerhouse performance, a far cry from the original recording.
Clarkson has been a supporter of the "Lover" singer for years. She recently advised Swift to re-record her first six albums, which her previous record label, Big Machine, owns. You'll recall that Swift's nemesis, Scooter Braun, now owns the record label. Clarkson sent a tweet to Swift sharing her two cents and also admitting that she would purchase her new recordings, herself! Swift admitted in an interview that she will be re-recording her first five albums in November of 2020, when she is legally allowed to do so.
To watch the full cover of Clarkson's "Delicate," tune into The Kelly Clarkson Show on your local television station or online.
Clarkson begins her talk show episodes by covering a song from another artist of any genre. The American Idol alum recently covered her fellow American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood, by performing her song "Before He Cheats." She also celebrated Halloween by performing Bette Midler's Hocus Pocus theme song while in full costume.
