Ariana Grande joined Season 21 of The Voice. Since then, she’s become best friends with Kelly Clarkson. The two have even been singing together as of recently. Country Music Alley previously reported that Kelly has been gushing over the pint-sized star.
She is in awe of Ariana’s talent. Of course, that doesn’t mean that Kelly isn’t talented herself. Fans look forward to seeing the coach cover songs on her daytime talk show. Kelly took the stage recently with Ariana and it was EPIC. The two performed their rendition of Aretha Franklin’s classic hit “RESPECT.”
Check out the incredible performance
On Tuesday, September 21, Kelly Clarkson shared a clip via her Instagram account. She shared the stage with the “Thank You Next” on a recent episode of The Voice. For their special performance, Kelly looked ultra-glam in her head-to-toe black look.
She wore a belted black blazer dress with matching tights and ankle boots. The “Behind These Hazel Eyes” singer accessorized her look with a metallic long-sleeve shirt and gold jewelry. Kelly wore her long blonde hair down with a middle part. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande wore a hot pink ensemble, which consisted of a tank top and bell-bottoms. She paired her look with elbow-length gloves, layered necklaces, and a light pink cowgirl hat.
The two performed their rendition of the 1967 song. It was originally recorded by Otis Redding in 1965. When Aretha took the song, she rearranged it and made it her own. Kelly and Ariana did the same when they covered it this week.
“R-E-S-P-E-C-T! 💁🏼♀️💁🏻♀️Just a little bit 🤏🏻 Loved singing this one with you girl! @ArianaGrande 🎤🎶 #TheVoice #VoicePremiere,” Kelly wrote in the caption.
The Kelly Clarkson Show shared their support by commenting, “Somebody pinch us 🤩✨,” while NBC added, “QUEENS. 👏🔥” Fans of both singers also took to the post to share their thoughts. Most of them are in love with this electrifying performance.
