Kelly Clarkson Effortlessly Nails Her Cover of Tove Lo’s ‘Habits (Stay High)’ In Concertby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
Kelly Clarkson‘s out on her Piece By Piece Tour, which means that nearly every day, we’re blessed with a brand new, ridiculously impressive cover. (Have you checked out our rundown of her 11 best covers on the road yet?)
This year, she’s already amazed fans in concerts (and, a day after each show, the Internet as a whole) with her renditions of songs like Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” and Rihanna’s “Stay” — and even Elvis’ classic “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” And last night in Detroit, the Stronger singer tackled none other than Swede-pop superstar Tove Lo and her 2014 runaway smash, “Habits (Stay High).”
“This is one of my favorite artists…here’s the thing about Tove Lo, it’s not real family, so I had to pick the most family one out of ’em,” she joked before launching into the track during the fan dedication section.
And, as with all Kelly Clarkson covers of already amazing pop songs, the Idol alum took the track and made it even more amazing with her effortlessly melodic, powerhouse vocal skills. Such a killer rendition! Watch above.
But here’s the real question: Will Tove Lo return the gesture anytime soon? A Tove version of “Behind These Hazel Eyes” — or better yet, “Sober” — certainly seems quite necessary.
