Kelly Clarkson wowed her talk show audiences Thursday afternoon as she took the stage performing a popular Radiohead single. On the October 28 episode of the Kelly Clarkson Show, the star of The Voice tackles a song that many wouldn’t think could translate into the type of music she is known to sing. She expertly turned the hit into a smooth ballad as only Clarkson can deliver with her signature sounds.
Clarkson’s voice is stunning, always. But, Radiohead’s sound, an eclectic mix of jazz and electronica seems far, far away from the type of song Clarkson would typically perform.
However, her performance was not only stunning. It brought an entirely new feel to the already moving piece.
In the jaw-dropping performance, Clarkson transforms Radiohead’s Karma Police into an emotive and powerful ballad.
The Voice judges performance is powerful as she sings, adding her own larger-than-life voice to the already haunting Radiohead song. She fills the stage with a cover that will likely remain unforgettable.
This performance is part of Kelly Clarkson’s regular daily talk show segment, Kellyoke. In this segment, the Miss Independent singer performs a cover performance of a famous song.
So far, the singer has performed songs made famous by music icons such as Tina Turner, Depeche Mode, and Coldplay, among others.
