Kelly Clarkson covered Lizzo's "Juice" on her daytime talk show The Kelly Clarkson Show this week, and the internet still has not recovered. In fact, her energetic take is making people realize just how badly they want a Lizzo-Clarkson collaboration some time in the near future. Who can make this happen?
For the uninitiated, Clarkson's NBC show, which began airing on September 9, includes an incredible segment called Kellyoke. In it, the very first American Idol winner shows off what she does best: singing for live audiences. The segment is already a hit for obvious reasons, but this latest take on "Juice" elevates the segment to another level. Maybe that's because the inspirational message of "Juice" was exactly right for the weekly Motivation Monday theme of Clarkson's show.
Over on Twitter, people are floored. A few pointed out that Clarkson has a history of doing covers—and because she got her start on Idol, there have been a lot throughout her time as a performer. (Remember her first audition with Madonna's "Express Yourself"?) Even recently she's made people swoon at concerts, like when she hit every single note while singing "Shallow" at a show in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Anyway, watch her belt "Juice" below:
Some of Clarkson's other covers on Kellyoke include renditions of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man,” Britney Spears's "Till The World Ends," and Prince's "Let's Go Crazy." She also performed "Straight Up," a favorite by her former Idol judge Paula Abdul.
Lizzo hasn't commented on Clarkson's cover yet, but it feels as if anything could happen in terms of a collaboration. Lizzo is having an incredible year that has included teaming up with her hero Missy Elliott as well as artists like Charli XCX and Da Baby. She was also recently spotted in the studio with Justin Timberlake. Meanwhile, Rihanna has made it pretty clear she wants to work with the flute-playing all-star. So let's add Clarkson to the list?
