Kelly Clarkson Covers The Beatles’ “Oh Darling” – Kent WA – (VIDEO)

Watch Kelly Clarkson wail away on the Beatles’ “Oh Darling” in Kent Washington last night.  The pop queen told the audience she just learned the classic tune earlier that day.  Kelly has been singing a new cover every concert, requested by fans on twitter.  This particular selection made her guitar player, a big Beatles’ fan, “so happy.”

“You can’t screw up the Beatles,” said Kelly about her pre-performance nerves, “People get mad at you.”

She did not mess it up. Listen for yourself.

Bonus video: Kelly sings the Goo Goo Dolls “Iris” in Salt Lake City on Tuesday.

    LOVED both of these covers!  Man, Kelly really wailed on “Oh, Darling”.  So great!  Thanks, MJ, for giving these videos their own posts.  :)

    “Oh Darling” was phenomenal!  I have to confess I’m not familiar with this song either but I can’t complain about the performance that’s for sure.  Iris is in my top tier of favorites and Kelly did a great job with it.  Love them both!

    Thanks a bunch mj!

    Does anyone know where in Kent she performed?  No biggie, but I’m curious.  Thanks.

    Am a fan of small doses of Kelly, but she did herself proud on these two songs – especially, “Oh! Darling.”  Better than anything on her album.

    wow, oh darling sonds amazing!

  • heartly

     I’m not from the area but I guess it’s a newer, a little over 3 yrs old, arena just outside of Seattle.

      Not even in their wildest dream will they be half as successful as her or Carrie.

    That made no sense. And Kelly has more talent in her pinky than Scotty and Lauren has combined. Kelly is one of the best in the business and that’s why she has come so far. Thanks for sharing this! :)

    I never heard of it.  :)  But oh my goodness, wow, Kelly sounds awesome.  Well more than awesome.  I feel like Steven Tyler shaking my head back and forth with the euphoria face that he has on Idol.  lol….

    That’s pretty much spine tingling.    Yep….

    I was at the concert last night; Kelly was her usual amazing self & so funny.  She did every song I’d hoped she would, including an acoustic Einstein off her current album (& my favorite), so that was a nice surprise.  

    The ShoWare is a newish facility, probably less than 5 years old, in Kent, which is about half hour or so east of Seattle.

    I would love to have a cd of all of these covers.  Unbelievable covers – I may have to listen to Oh Darlin about a zillion times.  Kelly is just so fantastic.  I so appreciate these videos.

    Two of my favorite songs here.  Kelly did fantastic on Oh Darling, but she butchered Iris.  I love Kelly but that was so terrible compared to the original.

  • Anonymous

    man, i had to wake up and come listen to Oh Darlin again!  and again! and….

    yeah, it’s just that GREAT!  Would be nice to have a recorded version of that just the way she did it here.  But I love  watching her get into it too – so maybe this is the perfect one.

    This song was perfect for Kelly to show her vocal talents, and of course, she did :)

    I might be too much of a Beatles fan. I was disappointed with ‘Oh, Darling’. She did good for just learning the song, though. I’d like to hear it again once she’d have a chance to polish it up more.
