The 41st annual Kennedy Center Honors were broadcast on CBS Wednesday (Dec. 26), and Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to one of the honorees, Reba McEntire, with a performance of her sassy hit, “Fancy.”
In a clip posted by the Kennedy Center, Clarkson nails both the soft and gritty notes of the tune, as McEntire clapped and cheered from the audience.
