    Was Kelly Clarkson wearing THE Jane Austen ring during her performance today????

  • cgreene

    @Karen: No, it’s a replica. Since the actual Jane Austen ring can only stay in England Kelly’s fiance made a replica of it. :)

    Kelly was incredible as always!

    She was amazing. SO emotional. And simple. she is a great singer. the best thing to come out of American Idol in my opinion.

    Kelly is a very talented singer.

  • Elsa

    Say what you will for her, but she’s a great singer.

  • groundcontrol

    Meh . . . I’m at a loss as to how anyone can call her a great singer. She is pleasantly capable at best.
    But she looks cute and I like her hair and I give her props for being able to sing in front of such a large audience and do her job.

  • LaCroix

    I just love the passion & melody in her voice.. beautiful!

  • cgreene

    @Karen: Thanks and yeah she said in a interview that he had a replica of it made for her for Christmas since she couldn’t keep the real one. :) He put diamonds on the band of it which isn’t like that on the real one.

    I just watched both Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce’s inauguration performance videos. Someone out West told me they had watched the live broadcast and said that as Kelly progressed in the song (My Country tis of Thee), that her sound increased in volume and power & that her voice just echoed off of the walls of surrounding buildings in a majestic way. That certainly was very moving, the video didn’t quite capture that fully. Having said that, why pit Kelly against Beyonce. I thought Beyonce’s National Anthem – “the Star Spangled Banner” was beautifully done. Both did a wonderful job. I was curious about the look on Michele Obama’s face during the Beyonce video. I wonder what was on her mind. A lot of attention had been paid in the media to her new hair style, do you think she felt upstaged by Beyonce’s beautiful full bodied hair? I dunno. What do you guys think?

  • Crica

    I love her voice, but she voted for Roomney what is she doing there?

  • kekhrie

    Oh my gosh, they’re the cutest couple ever! And kelly sang her ass off! So congrats all around! :)

  • shitandfame

    @Crica: She didn’t.

    When Kelly Clarkson was finished with her majestic performance, many people were on the ground looking for their socks. She DID blow the socks off that song. Never, ever heard that song sung so well.

  • jr2013

    I cried when I heard it. It was so beautiful. It just grew in volume with each verse. Absolutely wonderful.

  • Amber

    The Marine Band was the most amazing sound I’ve ever heard. Clarkson brought tears to my eyes, Beyonce’ sounded wonderful too.

  • Anne M.

  • Will

    @Crica: She did actually vote for Obama.

  • Nick B

    Beyonce and Kelly both brought me to tears. What beautiful performances in every way imaginable. What a treat to have them publicly honor this special day with us. Thank you both! And thanks to the wise folks who invited these incredible talents to sing for us, all Americans. This was a real American celebration for the ages.

  • dre

    @Crica: kelly wrote on her twitter she voted for obama.

  • sass

    @Crica: Kelly did not vote for Romney. Kelly voted for Obama both times. Maybe you are mixing things up with Ron Paul. She liked him for small government, but he was not an option in the final election.

    Kelly Clarkson was, you were phenomenal….followed you in a book…and noticed you sang three verses…the third one is the first time I’ve heard sung and the fact that you kept building it up with the Marine orchestra….was, on TV, in New Jersey….magnificent… should have seen the men on the podium checking her out!!!!
    KOO DOOS!!!
