13 Times Kelly Clarkson's Live Singing Was Out of This World
Kelly Clarkson started off as America's powerhouse sweetheart on American Idol in 2002 and soon became one of the reigning queens of contemporary pop music. She's taken on different roles over her career — a coach on The Voice, philanthropist, and talk show host. But one thing remains constant: she can hit and hold any note on the planet masterfully and with a whole lotta emotion. Listen to her live, and she'll sound even better than she does on her album with extra riffs and ad-libs! While it was hard to choose, here are Clarkson's very best live performances, from a soulful cover of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" to a tear-inducing version of "Piece by Piece."
