What better way to start the day than with an infectious groove of a song to get you moving? Kelly Clarkson did just that when she kicked off her eponymous show Thursday (Jan. 21) with a cover of dance queen Kylie Minogue’s 2001 hit “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” for her Kellyoke segment.
Clarkson stood on the darkened stage — its lighting reminiscent of a hoppin’, dark dance club pulsating with colorful lights — lending the song a powerful feel with her signature strong vocals.
“I just can’t get you out of my head/ Boy, your lovin’ is all I think about/ I just can’t get you out of my head/ Boy, it’s more than I dare to think about/ Every night/ Every day/ Just to be there in your arms/ Won’t you stay?” the Grammy winner sings with powerful yearning.
The Kelly Clarkson Show’s official Twitter account also acknowledged that the song’s an earworm, writing alongside the video, “What’s one #Kellyoke that lives in your head rent-free?” and tagging Minogue.
Minogue’s bop peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2002, and spent 20 weeks on the chart.
Earlier in the week, Clarkson took on Tracy Chapman’s 1995 hit “Give Me One Reason” and gave it a smokin’ bluesy feel. The week before, she took on the New Radicals hit “You Get What You Give” — just days before the band reunited to perform the same song for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration parade.
