Kelly Clarkson gave her audience “Something to Talk About” during the Kellyoke segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show on Thursday (Jan. 9), covering Bonnie Raitt‘s Billboard Hot 100 No. 5 hit at the start of the episode.
She made a bold entrance for the performance in a black-and-white leopard-print belted dress. “We laugh just a little too loud/ Stand just a little too close/ We stare just a little too long/ Maybe they’re seein’ something we don’t, darling,” she belted out the first verse.
By the beginning of the second verse, the drumbeat and guitar notes, paired with the crowd’s synched clapping, gave Clarkson an extra soulful umph for her performance.
