Kelly Clarkson puts her spin on Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
Well, it happened guys. Just when we thought we were saved from yet another Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” cover (FYI we’ve already been treated to the original cover version, Katy Perry’s cover, fun.’s take, the Team USA Olympic Swimmers’ version, and 80 bajillion more on the internet), Kelly Clarkson goes ahead and does another one. But it’s like, how can we even be mad, you know? It’s KELLY. So yeah, get-out-of-jail-free card on that one but please, let this be the end!
Watch Kelly Clarkson cover Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” after the jump.
As you well know by now, while out on her “Stronger” tour, the Best Video With A Message VMA nominee has been taking cover song requests via Twitter. In recent weeks, Clarkson has covered Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” put her own twist on Britney Spears’ “Everytime,” and slayed the game with her cover of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak.” Surprise surprise, Kelly’s cover of Carly’s smash is also just as bomb. To her audience at the MixTape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Kelly confesses that she actually mentored Carly Rae way back when during her Canadian Idol days, but finds the lyrics to her smash a tad confusing. Kelly jokes: “Who did you miss? Because you didn’t know them. But I don’t know. Maybe that’s one of those love waits around the corner… I don’t know.” We have no clue either, Kel! Also, in non-Carly news, I’m wondering if Kel could hit up a Mariah cover next time? Maybe “Always Be My Baby?”
