Kelly Clarkson headed out on the road this weekend with a’cappella stars, Pentatonix on her 2015 summer tour to promote her latest album, Piece by Piece. First stop: Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The singer’s set list was a mixture of beloved hits, and songs from the new album. In addition, nightly fan request covers are back by popular demand. The inaugural cover, chosen by fans via social media, was “Nobody Love” by rising star, Tori Kelly.
There’s an American Idol connection between the two. While Kelly won the very first season of the iconic singing competition, Tori was rejected from the show’s Hollywood Round in season 9. No matter how they got here, both performers are currently enjoying chart success, proving successful careers can be had after Idol, whether you win or lose
Check out the full setlist from tonight’s show. Notably, Kelly mashed up “Take You High” with Prince’s “When Doves Cry,” and also “Uptown Funk” with “Walk Away.” The encore included a cover of “Bang Bang” by Jessie J. Pentatonix joined Kelly on stage for her single “Heartbeat Song.”
Unfortunately, there were curfew problems with the venue, resulting in Kelly cutting a song or two from the encore.
