Kelly Chooses an Idol Duet Partner

Kelly Clarkson was the newest music superstar to join The Voice as a coach when Season 14 kicked off last week. Obviously, Clarkson is more than qualified to help find the next big thing in music, considering the fact that she was the inaugural winner of American Idol, she's sold more than 25 million albums, and she's won three Grammys, just to name a few of her major accomplishments. 

Of course, Clarkson's songs have come to form a special place in our hearts and our lives. Whether we're belting out "Since U Been Gone," feeling empowered thanks to "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," or dancing to "Love So Soft," one of her latest hits, Clarkson's music just gets us.

But she also has quite the knack for making other people's music completely her own, too. If you've ever seen Clarkson perform live, you know that she loves to cover her favorite artists, and every time she does, we kind of love it even more than the original. 

Do yourself a favor and get acquainted with Clarkson's best cover songs, below. And trust us, it was so difficult to narrow it down.

1. (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman - Originally Performed by Aretha Franklin

Clarkson's breakout moment on American Idol was sweet and soulful, just like The Queen of Soul's version.

2. Give Me One Reason - Originally Performed by Tracy Chapman

We never need a reason to revisit this cover. It is always worth a listen.

3. Bitch Better Have My Money - Originally Performed by Rihanna

Clarkson brings her own unique brand of fierceness to this tune already dripping with sass.

4. It's Quiet Uptown from Hamilton: An American Musical

Clarkson makes us cry with this song on The Hamilton Mixtape as much as the musical's version does.

5. Chandelier - Originally Performed by Sia

Face-melting vocals? Check. Sia wig? Check. Goosebumps? Yup, they're there, too. Oh, and Clarkson does it all a cappella. Consider us amazed.

You can catch more of Clarkson's musical brilliance on The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC. See how Clarkson and her fellow coaches on The Voice really think this season is going so far, below.
