Kelly Clarkson covers Cardigan’s “Lovefool”
Kelly Clarkson also showed off her soft side during the week of love. She previously announced that she’s celebrating singles awareness week leading up to Valentine’s Day. She previously performed Cardigan’s 1996 hit song Lovefool on Tuesday, February 9.
For her version, Kelly stood at the microphone with her trademark purple lights shining down on her and her band. She stuck to the original version before she heads into the song. But she didn’t let her powerhouse vocals overpower the song. Instead, she made it all her own.
Of course, Kelly’s fans were in love with her cover of the song from the Swedish band.

As fans know, Kelly is in the midst of her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. But it’s not the first time that she’s sung a sad song. She previously covered Another Sad Love Song by Toni Braxton. She also revisited the ’90s last month when she covered Soul Asylum’s Runaway Train.
