AceShowbiz - Kelly Clarkson's latest cover performance might be her best one yet. The "American Idol" season one winner successfully drove fans wild when she took the stage over the weekend to belt out Lady GaGa and Bradley Cooper's hit duet "Shallow" from "A Star Is Born".
Introducing her performance at her "Meaning of Life" tour show in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Kelly gushed over GaGa, "This chick is amazing. We're really different, but at the same time we're similar in the fact that she just loves music and that's why she's doing what she's doing." The "Because of You" singer also called her fellow singer "the nicest human being ever" and wished her to win at the 2019 Academy Awards.
Kelly then proceeded to sing it, flawlessly hitting every note with her signature power-rasp voice. Even though she performed the duet solo, "The Voice" coach still managed to slay her rendition effortlessly. Both fans of the singer and "A Star Is Born" were naturally in awe with her performance, with some hoping for her to release a studio version of the cover.
"The song is vocal suicide. Kelly Clarkson pulled off BOTH parts by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. Brava!!! KC needs to release a studio version STAT!" one fan commented, as another dubbed it "a holy experience" and "a masterpiece." One person gushed, "What I most like about Kelly is that she never cover a song exactly like the original. She always puts her special talent in the cover."
"Shallow" was an instant hit following its release last year, topping music charts in several countries and winning a number of accolades, including Grammys and Golden Globes. The song is nominated for Best Original Song at the 2019 Academy Awards, while GaGa is up for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of Ally in "A Star Is Born".
