Kelly Clarkson covered Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” Saturday evening—and even got Swift’s stamp of approval.

In a fan-recorded video of the performance, Clarkson introduces “Shake It Off” as “one of [her] favorite songs out right now.” She goes on to infuse the pop song with some soul, and finishes with a note on Tay: “Seriously, everybody gives Taylor Swift a hard time, but she can write a hook,” Clarkson says. “I’m just sayin’.”

Swift returned the compliment with a tweet: “Watching Kelly Clarkson SLAY ‘Shake It Off’ is an excellent way to celebrate 26 HOURS TIL 1989!!!!!!” 1989 is out now.
