Kelly Clarkson has gone and done it again.
This weekend’s cover of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” has fans reduced to beautiful disasters over how she can apparently master a cover in any genre. It’s no surprise considering how quickly Clarkson proved herself a vocal dynamo on the first season of American Idol, absolutely shattering the show’s glorified-karaoke format.
EW has previously gone on record and urged Clarkson to record a covers-only album, but I’ll take that plea one step further and suggest the specific tracks she’s previously performed during the beloved fan-request portion of her tours. Now that we’ve heard how stunning she sounds on low-quality YouTube videos, I’m confident that Kelly fanatics would throw down good money to experience these covers with a little production value.
The tracks I’ve chosen below aren’t necessarily her 17 best covers—because, let’s face it, every track is pretty much tied at No. 1—they’re most representative of her mind-blowing range as a performer and the friends she can (must!) enlist from her career.
