Kelly Clarkson has come a long way since her American Idol beginnings. As she ushers in the New Year, the first week of her daytime talk show will feature “New Me in ’23” episodes. The singer basically begins each of her episodes with a song cover, and most recently, she decided to perform one of Katy Perry’s songs.

Every episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” starts off with a song performed by the “American Idol” winner. On the episode airing on January 3, 2023, she picked to sing a stripped-down, acoustic version of Katy Perry’s 2011 single “The One That Got Away.” With just her guitarist Jaco Caraco sitting beside her side, Clarkson performed the song facing the camera on a stage that was almost completely empty.

Kelly’s followers quickly took to social media to show how much they loved the most recent Kellyoke cover.

“Yeeees Queen Kelly 👑 singing queen Katys 👑 iconic song 💙 💙 love them both, thank you for this cover,” one user commented on YouTube.

“Kelly’s voice is so stunning and it makes me cry, giving me goosebumps every single time!!❤️ 🙌🏼 😭” wrote another on Instagram.

Kelly Clarkson’s position at number 194 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time” has upset a lot of her fans recently. According to them, the singer ought to be much higher. They have expressed their concerns on social media, and some are citing this cover of Katy Perry’s song as proof of the singer’s talent.
