The Kelly Clarkson Show has returned for its fifth season, which also means the American Idol alum’s fan-favorite Kellyoke segment is back. On Wednesday (Oct. 25), Clarkson took Coldplay‘s “Always in My Head” for a spin.
Backed by her band Y’all, the three-time Grammy winner passionately sang the track, injecting peaceful, soaring high notes in her rendition. “My body moves/ Goes where I will/ But though I try my heart stays still/ It never moves/ Just won’t be led/ And so my mouth waters, to be fed/ And you’re always in my head/ You’re always in my head/ You’re always in my head,” she languidly sang.

“Always in My Head” serves as the first track on Coldplay’s 2014 album, Ghost Stories. While the track — written by the band and produced by Paul Epworth, Dan Green and Rik Simpson — failed to chart on any of the Billboard singles tallies, the album topped the Billboard 200 and stayed on the all-genre chart for 43 weeks. Ghost Stories additionally marked Coldplay’s fourth album to go No. 1, after 2011’s Mylo Xyloto, 2008’s Viva La Vida or Death And All is Friends, and 2005’s X&Y.
As for what’s in store for the rest of Clarkson’s current season, showrunner Alex Duda told Entertainment Weekly, “Kellyoke fans can expect to see Kelly and her band perform impromptu duets with our 30 Rock neighbors and talent from Broadway, plus more ‘Songs & Stories’ episodes with artists such as Pink, Garth Brooks, and Chris Martin. We’ll also do our signature ‘Good Neighbor’ segment, highlighting everyday people doing extraordinary things in their communities.”
