On Wednesday’s (March 3) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the multi-talented host tackled the Billboard Hot 100 top five hit from Kings of Leon’s 2008 album Only by the Night. In addition to peaking at No. 4 on the Hot 100, “Use Somebody” also topped the Alternative Airplay and Adult Alternative Airplay charts. Coincidentally, Kings of Leon are back atop the Triple A chart this week with their latest single “The Bandit.”
Clarkson was joined by a full band and a harmonizing backup singer for the rocking cover, with appropriately epic lights flashing all around to the song’s driving beat.
KoL’s latest single, “The Bandit,” is the lead track from When You See Yourself, Kings of Leon’s eighth full-length and first since 2016’s Walls, the band’s first Billboard 200 No. 1 album. The new set is due Friday via RCA Records.
