Even though Kelly Clarkson is a bonafide talk show host now, that hasn’t stopped the Popstar from commanding the stage in song every so often.
For all the best from Kelly Clarkson and her contemporaries, check out Audacy's Kelly Clarkson Radio.
During the Kelly Clarkson Show, each episode begins with a segment called “Kellyoke,” giving the artist the chance to sing her heart out to shortened versions of various songs that span all genres.
Typically, Clarkson sings cultural classics like hits from Janet Jackson, Coldplay, and more. However, on the most recent episode of the talk show, that aired on September 27, Kelly took a synthpop turn for the early 1990s.
The singer showed off her vocal chops, covering Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence.” This is the band’s biggest hit and in 1990, the track reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song where Dave Gahan keeps a low even tone originally got a slightly soulful makeover from Clarkson and her band, however, she was able to capture the song’s far away feeling.
On September 28, Clarkson took a Pop punk route during her “Kellyoke” segment, cover Lit’s “My Own Worst Enemy.”
