Remember how much fun we had watching every single one of Kelly Clarkson’s covers from her Stronger tour?

Well, now that ABC’s singing competition Duets has (mercifully) wrapped, the original American Idol is back on the road for a summer tour with The Fray, and when she’s not recording theme songs for the Dallas Cowboys, she’s serving up more nightly fan-requested covers. Guess what? They’re as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as ever.

Over the last three weeks, Clarkson has brought her powerhouse pipes to songs like “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry, “We Are Young” by Fun., and “Not Over You” by Gavin DeGraw. On Friday, she even donned a zip-up hoodie and rapped “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.

Basically, you need to see these 14 performances, and because we care about you faithful readers so much, we’ve compiled them all below. Enjoy!
