Kelly Clarkson covered “Torn” in her latest “Kellyoke” segment from The Kelly Clarkson Show on Wednesday (Oct. 21).
Clarkson performed Natalie Imbruglia‘s rendition of the song, which the Australian singer-songwriter released as her debut single in 1997. “Torn” was originally written by Ednaswap bandmates Scott Cutler and Anne Preven with producer Phil Thornalley in 1993, the same year it was first recorded by Danish pop singer Lis Sørensen, before Ednaswap released their original version in 1995.
Imbruglia’s renowned version peaked at No. 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1998 and was nominated for a Grammy that year for best female pop vocal performance.
And Clarkson’s rendition is one for the books.
