    I loved that so much. I’m wondering, is this amazing lady outside the bubble? I feel like if I asked my next door neighbors they wouldn’t know who she is. But she is such a successful artist and in her own league.  I never really hear much about her in the press. I caught the end of Idol S1 and this girl was undeniably the best and an amazing talent.  

  • iluvai

    Kelly also looked great, I loved her dress. She looked so classy. Just Gorgeous!

  • Damien Roberts

    Was I the only one waiting for/hoping for the note Kelly hit on that song when she sang it on idol?

  • Jenna

    Loved it, simple but beautiful <3

  • mtlfan2

    Kelly is the queen!! :)

  • Jenna

    I was hoping she’d go for it but she’s always said she only did it on Idol because she wanted people to vote for her lol so I wasn’t expecting her to.

  • Deon Oxivar

    no HD video yet? Ugh hate to stuck with this potato quality for now :(

  • Landon Cox

    I’m not sure she can hit a note that high and that clear any more. Her voice has matured in a decade and has gotten a little rougher…thanks Chivas!

  • potatorocks

     The joy Kelly has found in her personal life is the extra spark that makes it impossible to ignore her talent.  She is a shining star.

  • justhoo1

    Kelly looked and sounded wonderful tonight!!

  • Latin2

    wow. I remember season 1 when Kelly Clarkson did “Natural Women”…I WAS BLOWN AWAY, here it is again;


  • Goodvibes27

    Yes I feel Carrie and Kelly are definitely outside the bubble.

  • iluvai

    awesome. I love them.

  • iluvai

    Dear G in Heaven, she sounds like an angel.

  • Latin2

    I remember watching the 2011 AMA awards when Kelly Clarkson did the big band version of “Mr Know-it-all” and half of the audience looked like “duh..who is this?” and IMO was the best of the evening.

    She doesn’t need autotune or any other type of help. She is just great.

  • Latin2

    Yeah, she had the audience all up on their feet by the end of the song.

    <3 <3 <3

  • anonoymous

    Once again a performance that did not disappoint from the fantastic Kelly Clarkson! 

    Idol was well-represented tonight from both Idol winners.

  • breakdown

    American Idol should kiss Kelly’s feet! I don’t think the show would have been nearly as successful if she hadn’t won Season 1.

  • abbysee

    Awesome, as always. Queen Kelly delivers.

  • Van

    Awesome!! Great job Kelly, Aben, and Jason! WOOHOO another grammy for her, well deserved :)

  • MellyPer1692

    Aww Adam commented on Kelly too…he loves her.
    adamlambert: @kelly_clarkson:disqus  damn! SANG get face off!!!! Wow.

    LOL, I’m assuming “get” is an autocorrect of a “her” typo

    She was fantastic!

  • Anny_nanny

    For the first time in my life I wanted to smash the phone on the wall. LOL
    The wonderfull performance of the gorgeous singer. The dress was great, Kelly all glows from the inside – all great, thanks for posting.

  • Namarinad

    WOW what a wonderful performance Kelly
    way to  go, she deserves all the good things coming her way

  • Xentusk

    Congrats Kelly, what a year for her :D

  • 1rollbounce2

    This was amazing!  The Ellen photobomb was soooo funny and if Brandon woulda moved his head over a little, he woulda been in on the action!

    I didn’t expect the whistle note…I fell in love with Kelly on the whistle note but never thought it fit the song exactly, for one.  I think if she rested her voice for a solid month she could still get it…but she’s been singing non stop for the whole year. 

    That’s also why I think she pulled it out early in the competition – and she said as much.  Her voice was getting worn by “walk on by” and definitely it’s raining men.  She played to WIN!

    I like the contrast in our two core Idol’s speeches…LOL Carrie gives us the glory to God thing and Kelly swares & brings up sexy and alcohol!!

  • Jake W.

    Good performance. Crystal did Natural Woman better IMO, but Kelly did a fine job as well.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Kelly Clarkson ?@kelly_clarkson
    @TheEllenShow you and your wife were the best people to watch a show with! Thank you for a fun night and the drink ha!

  • IrisandLilies

    Of the two songs Kelly performed, I thought Natural Woman was the far better performance.  The Tennessee Waltz, to me, is a tender song and unsuited to belting. 
    BTW, Kelly’s acceptance speech was wonderful.  She was funny and exuberant and had great things to say about other performers.  In a way,  her speech reminded me of Meryl Streep’s acceptance speeches, which are always top-notch.

  • cheese1

    Kelly’s acceptance speech was the best of the night (as was her entire circuitous route to the stage). 

    I don’t buy her music except for the odd single, but I always enjoy hearing her sing live. I think she definitely the best voice, male or female, from Idol. 

  • CB40

    It’s incredible in the pop world to win a Grammy award 8 years after winning the first two. To be 30 in this industry and still have everything in front of you and so much more time to put out great music with that amazing voice, well, Kelly really is on top of the world.

  • MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Amazing and perfect. what a gorgeous voice. She remains the reigning Queen.


    Seeing the picture from the Photo Bomb makes me wonder why Kelly wasn’t sitting in the front row with other great nominees. She was nominated for more than 1 award, she deserved to be.

  • waitingforthe1

    I read that Kelly is the first artist to win Pop Vocal Album of the year Grammy twice and in looking at it appears to be true. 

    As much as winning Pop Vocal Performance would’ve been nice or Record of the Year, winning a Grammy for her entire body of work for this era is even more impressive. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Nice that Justin praised Kelly on twitter:

    Blake Shelton ?@blakeshelton
    So Miranda and I have talked about it. And I don’t care what anybody says. ANYBODY.. @kelly_clarksonis THE best singer on earth. Period.Blake Shelton ?@blakeshelton“@SimpleAsAli: @blakeshelton @kelly_clarkson nah man, i think she’s got the entire universe” Agreed..Expand12hJustin Timberlake ?@jtimberlake“@blakeshelton: “@SimpleAsAli: @blakeshelton@kelly_clarkson nah man, i think she’s got the entire universe” Agreed..” Yes!! Crazy voice!

    “I read that Kelly is the first artist to win Pop Vocal Album of the year Grammy twice and in looking at it appears to be true. ”

    Thanks for confirming that. Great accomplishment!

  • standtotheright

    It was a great night for her. As I have said before, Clarksonspaz is awesome.

  • Genuine

     Not really. I liked it better the way she sang it last night. I guess I’m not a big fan of whistle notes, although to do capture the attention.

  • Genuine

     I didn’t think she belted Tennessee Waltz at all. She sang it her way though which was a little different than the style of the 50’s when Patti sang it.

     Grammys 2013: Grades for All 20 Performances!
    by Michael Slezak

    Kelly Clarkson“Tennessee Waltz”/”(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman”Paying
    tribute to Patti Page and Carole King, the original American Idol
    somehow made relevant an old-fashioned country ditty, and then took
    glorious possession of one of the greatest pop-soul ballads ever
    written. Honestly, if she’d flown out of the auditorium like Superman at
    the end of her performance, it wouldn’t have shocked me in the least.
    Girl cannot be human. Grade: A+

  • heartly

    haha  you got your spaz moment and she didn’t disappoint. 

    I’m not even going to pretend and try to give a balanced review. It’s no secret I’m a big fan of her and last night was everything I enjoy so much about Kelly. A little nuts, scatterbrained, un-pc, at times embarassing, a lot awesome, and can not only sing a song great but interpret them as well. She is on such a high lately and it’s been such a joy to watch because it’s spilling over to everything she’s been doing. She actually seems to be genuinely enjoying all the opportunities she’s had this past year+ instead of kinda sorta enjoying them*. There were some dark, lean years there for awhile. lol

    * yes, I am implying that Brandon and all that’s come from that is spilling over to her work in a very positive way. She has a balance she’s never had before.

    I love that she sang these two songs instead of something out of her own catalog. After finally getting to watch almost the whole show, the tribute fit in with the whole thing more than any song of her own would’ve and it showed off what a great singer she is that I think sometimes gets lost with people on all of her pop stuff.

    I read that Kelly is the first artist to win Pop Vocal Album of the year Grammy twice and in looking at it appears to be true. 

    As much as winning Pop Vocal Performance would’ve been nice or Record
    of the Year, winning a Grammy for her entire body of work for this era
    is even more impressive.

    That’s quite an accomplishment and I agree. The album award was the one I really didn’t think she had a chance of getting and I’m glad I was wrong about that.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    This is cool!

    Kelly Clarkson ?@kelly_clarkson
    Don’t worry about it …I’m just hanging out with one of the best singers in the world :) what a cool chick as well!

    Nice tweet from Pink that Kelly appreciated:

    P!nk ?@Pink
    Congrats to Kelly Clarkson for the award and that love able speech. You made me laugh. Can’t wait to hear that song with Miguel. Xo

    Kelly Clarkson ?@kelly_clarkson
    @Pink um …..this just made my night! I love you! I am a horrible public speaker. I want to vomit and cry all at once ha :)

    Also, looks like Miguel was cool with Kelly’s mention of him in her speech (and wanting to duet with him):

    Miguel ?@MiguelUnlimited
    @Kelly_Clarkson say when! You killed tonight, MUCH LOVE

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Thanks for posting that review. Michael has reviewed all 20 performances and given out some tough grades to a few:

  • potatorocks

      I disagree with Slezak. Taylor Swift is not  charming in any way.  She does have a good stylist, however.  I like her clothes.

  • overthetop1

    She was great on Tennessee Waltz.

  • tibitibis

    Congrats to Kelly , i was waiting for her moment on the Grammy’s ….and what moments she gave to the audience yesterday !

  • CB40

    I love the latest round of acknowledgments she’s getting from peers like Pink and Justin, that’s just awesome to see. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Ellen DeGeneres ?@TheEllenShow
    This is what happens when you sit in front of@Kelly_Clarkson.

    Kelly Clarkson ?@kelly_clarkson
    @TheEllenShow PHOTO-BOMB!! :) I blame it on the gin and tonic ….ooh there’s a song in there somewhere!

  • CHER

    I adore Kelly Clarkson- she is so real and such a sweetheart !
    This rendition of Tennessee Waltz just blew me away – I’m dying o hear her record a country album of classics like this – she can literally sing anything , but ehr duet with Jason Aldean woke up a lot of new fans , I hope . Kelly , you are our girl and we love you !

  • windmills

    The great thing about Kelly’s Grammy performance is how it showed beyond any shadow of a doubt how she’s come into her own as a vocalist. She has her own style now, soulful without being imitative of Aretha or Mariah or Whitney, gravelly without being imitative of Janis Joplin, and classic pop in a way that reminds of Judy Garland and Brenda Lee without imitating either. The Patti Page and Carole King songs showed better than any single original song Kelly has out there right now what she can do, and it’s going to be so fascinating seeing Kelly find original material that lets her express her better. The absolute best thing about her being in Nashville is the access it’ll give her to songwriters who have a broader view of pop than CHR and really a broader view of any genre (including country) than what’s on the radio. I can’t wait to see what comes.
