Kelly Clarkson Stunning Cover Of 80s Hit ‘Kids In America’

Kelly Clarkson Stunning Cover Of 80s Hit ‘Kids In America’

Singer and television talk show host Kelly Clarkson picked up the microphone and showed off her stunning pipes as she sang a hit from the 1980s, “Kids in America.”

Kelly Clarkson is a massively talented individual. During her career, she has sold millions of records, sold out stadiums across the country, and even was the original winner of a little show called American Idol. In addition to being on top of the music world for over a decade, Kelly hosts her own daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show

Anyone familiar with Kelly’s show knows that she brings people from all walks of life on her program to talk and highlight some of the good happening in the world. Not only does she use her platform for good, but she’ll often treat her studio audience to musical performances.

In a clip posted on YouTube, Kelly grabbed the microphone and took the stage to sing an utterly delightful cover of “Kids in America,” a tune from 1981, first performed by Kim Wilde.

“We’re the kids in America
We’re the kids in America
Everybody live for the music-go-round”

Kelly, once again, shows that she still has it. While she does not change the sound or the song’s lyrics, her simply singing the song makes it her own. Her voice is so unique and distinct. There isn’t anyone who sounds quite like her in music today. 

Some may even argue that Kelly’s “Kids in America” cover is superior to the original. Whether that’s true or not depends solely on one’s opinion. But I would tend to believe that Kelly’s performance gives the original version a run for its money, even if it may not be better. It’s still very close. 

Kelly can do it all!
