Watch Kelly Clarkson cover Kings of Leon, White Stripes live in NYC

Posted on

Patsy Cline, Kings of Leon and Alanis Morissette? Kelly Clarkson can take them all on– and she did last night for a packed house at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

In addition to a soaring stomp through the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army,” the Black Keys’ “Lies,” and Cline’s classic “Walking After Midnight,” Clarkson also segued Alanis’s “That I Would Be Good” into KoL’s “Use Somebody.” Watch it below:

Kings fans, if you’re keeping track, that’s a whole lot of famous-person tributes to “Use.” So who does it best — Paramore? Nickelback? Tyler Hilton? Bat for Lashes? Pixie Lott? Or a special KoL exception for Sugarland’s “Sex on Fire”?

And if you want to see what else you missed last night, YouTube has a nearly complete run-down of last night’s set, including Kelly classics “Since U Been Gone,” “Breakaway,” “Never Again,” and “I Do Not Hook Up” here.
