Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to a fellow pop powerhouse during the Thursday (April 15) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show when she took on Christina Aguilera‘s “What A Girl Wants.”
Accompanied by her band Y’all and drenched in neon blue lights, Clarkson wasted no time, skipping the intro and jumping into the first verse of Xtina’s 1999 hit.
“I wanna thank you for giving me time to breathe/ Like a rock you waited so patiently/ While I got it together, hmm/ While I figured it out,” Clarkson sang for the virtual studio audience, hitting each note with ease.
Clarkson has been on her Kellyoke grind all week, covering Dido’s “White Flag,” The Chicks’ “Gaslighter” and Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
