Kelly Clarkson Covers Kings of Leon's 'Use Somebody'

Kelly Clarkson Covers Kings of Leon's 'Use Somebody'

Kelly Clarkson mashes two cover songs together — Alanis Morissette‘s “That I Would Be Good” and Kings of Leon‘s “Use Somebody” — while kicking off her “All I Ever Wanted” tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday (October 2) in Uncasville, Conn.

On Sunday, the 27-year-old American Idol champ will be performing at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. And then on Tuesday, Kelly will play NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Woot!

FYI: Just last week, KoL‘s single “Use Somebody” hit the #1 spot on the Top 40 Radio charts in both airplay and audience. Amazingly, this is happening exactly one year after their album Only By The Night was released.

Absolutely stunning. It’s amazing how she can cover any song and make it her own. I think if she released either song as a single it would be insanely popular. True talent right there. She’s looks gorgeous too.

omg…I love this girl. She never fails to amaze me. What a voice and adorable personality. She is so awesome live. I am seeing her next Saturday in Atlantic City. I saw her in August, and she did amazing covers of Patsy Cline and Rod Stewart. Her talent is endless, and her voice always gives me chills.

she is one of the most talented singers out there right now. she’s got a great voice and eprsonality.

now, kings of leon. they are great. they are really good. but made up. that’s a made up band that was set up to success, they didn’t earn it (earn as in work hard.)

Kelly was amazing last night. Everybody under the sun has covered Use Somebody and she is the only one who made it her own. It’s just as good if not better than the original. She also did a great cover of the White Stripes’ “7 Nation Army”.

Not only does she have a smokin voice, she also sings songs like she has truly experienced the lyrics behind it. Did anyone notice her tearing up towards the end?
