Kelly Clarkson gave concertgoers a piercingly melancholic rendition of Robyn’s electro-pop 2010 hit “Dancing on My Own” during her concert last week.

During her “Minute and a Glass of Wine” segment -- where she drinks wine, talks with attendees and covers popular songs -- of her Meaning of Life Tour stop in her hometown of Dallas, Clarkson introduced the song as Robyn’s but alluded to a cover by English singer Calum Scott in 2016.

“I'm pretty sure this is a cover from Robyn a long time ago, but it's Calum Scott. I love this song. I'm so excited about this song," Clarkson says in the video. "I love getting turned on to new music that I didn't even know existed, and it's awesome. It's like seeing the movie Sixth Sense for the first time. Mind blown.”

Clarkson, who will return this year as the host of the Billboard Music Awards, also covered Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's “Shallow” from A Star Is Born at a previous show.
