Kelly Clarkson Nails Wynonna Judd’s ‘No One Else on Earth’ [Watch]
Kelly Clarkson has been on a roll lately with her impressive covers of everything from "Uptown Funk" to “Bye, Bye, Bye,” but at her Seattle show on Wednesday (Aug. 12), the powerhouse singer took it back to her roots with Wynonna Judd’s “No One Else on Earth."
“I’ve known this song since I was ten, so hopefully I don’t screw it up,” Clarkson quips before starting the classic.
She had no reason to worry, however, as the soulful artist’s vocals soared on the tune, in keeping with her pitch-perfect reputation. The band swelled along with her voice in the verses before bursting into an upbeat, powerful chorus, and if their cheers are any indication, the audience loved every second.
As with the rest of the covers at each show thus far, the song was fan-requested, and Clarkson says she was so excited to perform this one. “We haven’t had, I don’t think, a country one yet,” she comments to the band and audience. "I love it, too, because she’s bluesy country, which is my favorite.”
Clarkson has been on the Piece by Piece tour around the country, which continues through the end of October. She’s been leaving behind unforgettable moments in every city, it seems, charming audiences not just with unique covers but down-to-earth fan interactions, including stopping singing her hit “Breakaway" entirely simply to hold a fan’s adorable baby. Her latest single “Invincible” is gaining momentum in radio and climbing the charts after the success of “Heartbeat Song."
