Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway – X Factor UK Montage (VIDEO)

Kelly Clarkson made time during her busy UK tour promoting her new greatest hits album to sing “Breakaway” at the X Factor UK final in Manchester yesterday.

The American Idol winner performed as a video recap of the season played behind her. Aw. You can watch the final and read the recap at this link. Mateja will be back this afternoon to cover the big final!

    That was a nice bit of nostalgia. Kelly looked adorable and sounded great (as usual). She’s come such a long way since then, and still putting out the hits. Very nice.

    Nice enough performance.  Kelly and the background singers were the only ones live in that clip, the band was miming.  One of the giveaways of that is that her guitarist and keys player switched spots.  I suspected two other guys on her crew were playing drums and bass, but I can’t tell for sure with no clear view of them.  Intentional or not, the ending of the song was a nice deviation from the way she usually sings it.

    I get why they used that song, it fits with their video montage and also fits in with her Greatest Hits album, but that song is so boring.  It’s always been one of my least favorite Kelly singles and still baffles me how it became as huge as it did back in ’04 but I guess times were different then and I’m not going to wish it didn’t do what it did.

    Not really a Kelly Clarkson fan, but this is one of my favorite song of all times… Maybe because I am a bit of an Avril Lavigne fan (she wrote the song), but Kelly sang it so well and her voice and the words went straight to my heart… wanting to get out of the current situation and looking for something better in the future… that is what Kelly did with e.g. participating in American Idol and maybe that is why the song resonates with me…

    Man, that looks so much better than the US version.
