“I love this song!” said Kelly, “I know you probably heard it a bunch…bear with me. I love it!” No problem Kelly. SING ON.

It’s so awesome that the American Idol winner is finally back after her maternity leave. The singer has been teasing a male mystery guest for a song from her upcoming album, due out next year. I wouldn’t be the least bit mad if it was Sam Smith. I would LOVE a duet from those two. Wouldn’t you?

  1. Nice! I would LOVE a duet between Sam Smith and Kelly. I realize that so much of Sam Smith’s appeal for me is his lovely, haunting voice and compelling phrasing and singing style. I think that those qualities are so integral to how popular he has become.

  2. Perhaps Kelly was offering up a hint. We will have to wait and see. The a both terrific vocalist. That would be a “major chord” duet.

  3. so good to see Kelly back on stage, can’t wait for her Christmas special and new album!

  4. Sam Smith would definitely be 1 of my top choices for Kelly’s mystery male duet partner, along with Miguel and Pharrell Williams. I’m imagining some really dark dysfunctional relationship duet (because I’m having trouble imagining what would be “out of the box” for Kelly – she’s done personal dark on My December via Irvine but I’m thinking this could be a story song).

    Lovely cover here. I’ve always loved Kelly best on her soulful songs.

  5. So, Sam Smith, yeah? I like him. A lot. I like his album. A lot. This song? Lovely, deserves to be a hit. This cover? Not bad. This being the millionth cover of this lovely song? Help me…please…No more :(

  6. Yeees! Slay Queen Kelly! Hearing this only makes me want a duet between them even more gah.

  7. I love Kelly, but one of my pet peeves is singers who talk over the song intro. It’s part of the music and sets the atmosphere. Don’t disrespect it. Say what you want to say and then shutta you mouth! If the intro isn’t worth a listen, don’t have one.
