Kelly Clarkson celebrates Halloween with 'I Put a Spell on You' performance in Hocus Pocus costume
Kelly Clarkson is here to put a spell on you.
On Thursday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the host kicked off her Halloween celebrations with a rendition of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You” while dressed as Winifred Sanderson (Bette Midler) from Hocus Pocus — complete with orange wig and bright red lips. The spell-binding performance saw the host accompanied by two back-up singers in costume as Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker’s character) and Mary (Kathy Najimy) as the audience — all of whom were also in costume — cheered and dancers dressed as bellhops pranced around the stage.
In a segment of the talk show dubbed Kellyoke, it’s become tradition for Clarkson to open the episode with a musical number, covering many of the biggest stars out there. Last week the singer belted out a rendition of Whitney Houston’s iconic “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and the star has previously covered hits such as Martina McBride‘s “Independence Day,” Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time,” and Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”
