Kelly Clarkson is letting her rock and roll side shine. For the Wednesday (Jan. 11) installment of her fan-favorite Kellyoke segment, the Grammy-winning singer tried her hand at a Blink-182 cover and went for the band’s classic track “All the Small Things.”
Accompanied by her band Y’all, the “Since U Been Gone” singer donned clothing fit for the occasion, appearing onstage in an oversize gray dress and grunge-inspired flannel shirt for her rendition of the track.
“All the small things/ True care, truth brings/ I’ll take one lift/ Your ride, best trip/ Always, I know/ You’ll be at my show/ Watching, waiting/ Commiserating/ Say it ain’t so, I will not go/ Turn the lights off, carry me home,” Clarkson sang, powering through a shortened version of the track with her signature full-bodied tone and vocal runs.
“All the Small Things” was released on Sept. 28, 1999, as the second single from Blink-182’s third album, Enema of the State. The track served as a crossover hit for the band, peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 2000. The track additionally reached the summit of Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart and is widely considered to be one of the pop-punk group’s signature songs.
Clarkson’s cover comes at a fitting time — Blink-182 recently restored its original lineup consisting of Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus and is gearing up to go on a world tour starting in March; the first dates of the tour will take place in Latin America with stops in Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Mexico City and more.
