Thank you for that mahhhvelous introduction! Kelly Clarkson got into the Halloween spirit on the Thursday (Oct. 31) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show with an epic cover of “I Put A Spell On You” from Disney’s Hocus Pocus.
For her latest Kellyoke number, the talk show host channeled Bette Midler‘s witchy Winifred Sanderson to deliver a slow-burning, bluesy take on the song originally by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, complete with the character’s giant red hair, green-and-purple robes and trademark heart-shaped lipstick.
Flanked by back-up singers dressed as her fellow Sanderson sisters and a coterie of dancing zombie bellhops, Clarkson brought the house down with her sultry, powerhouse vocals on the classic number.
During the episode, Clarkson remained in costume to interview actress Kate Flannery, Lindsey Stirling and chat with a team of ghost hunters about America’s most haunted abandoned buildings.
