With both “Heartbeat Song” and “Invincible” bombing, Kelly Clarkson isn’t having the best era with Piece by Piece. By far, her seventh studio album is her worst-selling to date.

Coupled with the fact, the 33-year-old singer canceled a number of tour dates on doctor’s orders due to her second pregnancy, I wasn’t expecting her to restart promotion on the album. But she has. Clarkson apparently hasn’t completely abandoned it.

Kelly has chosen the title track as the third official single. Wisely, she’s changed the arrangement, giving the song a more upbeat production. The new radio version reminds me a bit of “Catch My Breath,” which I love BTW. Check out the accompanying music video below. Hopefully, this will give this era a second wind. Fingers crossed.

Stages, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in May, features Josh Groban covering classic Broadway songs. One of the highlights on the album is the duet between Kelly Clarkson and Groban. They flawlessly tackled “All I Ask” from the hit musical, Phantom of the Opera.”

“When I was making this record, and we were going to record this song, I knew this duet had to be recorded in a very, very special way and it had to be recorded with a very special singer,” Groban said of Clarkson. “She is one of the most versatile singers that I’ve ever heard.”

For his upcoming PBS special, Stages Live, the two reunite on stage. As expected, their performance is just beyond. It was like watching a vocal master class. I definitely got goosebumps.

Stages Lives begins airing on the network beginning November 28 and will run throughout December. Check out a couple of performances from the special below.

Kelly Clarkson was supposed to hit my neck of the wood last weekend, but the American Idol winner canceled her Canadian and UK dates due to health concerns. The most frustrating thing about that was the fact I was missing my Nick Jonas fill. The Kingdom actor was one of her opening acts. Damn, you Kelly!!!

Though, I’m still a little salty from Clarkson bailing, I have to give her props on her new duet. She sounds sensational on Ben Haenow’s new single “Second Hand Heart.” If you liked Olly Murs and Demi Lovato’s “Up,” you’ll love this is. This folk-tinged track is in the similar vein but much better executed. Plus, you have Kelly, whose powerful pipes are in a league of their own.

For the James Lee-directed clip, we see the X Factor UK winner finding his way back to Kelly using multitude modes of transportation- truck, boat and bike. I’m pretty sure the two never filmed together. They don’t share a single scene together until the end and even then, they’re not in the same shot, minus a back view of a Kelly stand-in. Check out the clip below.

Mentored by Simon Cowell, Ben Haenow outlasted the rest to take home the title of The X Factor Series 11 winner. The 30-year-old Brit is about to unleash his debut album next month and has enlisted another reality singing competition winner for some assistance.

Kelly Clarkson, who recently canceled her Canadian and UK tour dates for medical reasons, lends her powerful vocals for “Second Hand Heart.” The track doesn’t officially get released until October 9, but Haenow shared a couple of snippets via social media.

Based on the short preview, it has potential. Check out previews of “Second Hand Heart” below.

Just the other day, Josh Groban hilariously sang tweets from Donald Trump on Jimmy Kimmel Live! This time around, it’s Kelly Clarkson transforming real life Tinder profiles into musical masterpieces. When set to music, these sentences sound even more ridiculous. Just look at that bio above courtesy of a 32-year-old named Alvin.

The only thing better than this, is if Clarkson sang conversations from Grindr. Just imagine the OG American Idol winner belting out things like ‘double penetration,’ ‘piss play’ and countless other graphic requests. That would’ve be epic. Check out the funny clip below.

Kelly Clarkson Covers Tori Kelly On Tour Kickoff Night

In: Donovan, Music

Kelly Clarkson kicked off her Piece By Piece Tour this past weekend in Pennsylvania. Like her previous one, the 33-year-old singer includes a segment during this tour where she performs a cover requested by her fans. Expect many more of these posts to come as she makes her way through North America.

For her first cover, she picked Tori Kelly’s infectious single “Nobody Love.” Clarkson praised the rising star saying, “I’m a huge fan of this artist.” She added, “Not many people can sing well live and this girl is nailing it.” Preach Kelly!!! I love Tori and ecstatic that Kelly is a fan as well.

When Tori saw the cover, she tweeted her gratitude. “This is so awesome 2 me. thanks @kelly_clarkson for the shoutout & for being such a real artist (she killed my song).” And boy did she ever. Clarkson nailed it.

Check it out below. I can’t wait to hear what she has in store when she hits my neck of the woods. So excited to see her. Surprisingly, I’ve never attended her concert previously.

Heartbeat Song” was the first of Kelly Clarkson’s lead singles not to crack the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. I’m sure some heads were chopped for choosing that track to launch Kelly’s Piece By Piece era. Hopefully, she can turn it around with the official second single.

The 33-year-old chose the Sia-penned ballad “Invincible.” Wise decision. It’s by far the best on her seventh studio album. I’m confident it’ll chart much higher than its predecessor’s peak of No. 21.

For the accompanying visual, Clarkson enlisted Natalie Mroczka to direct. The female-empowering clip shows several vignettes of troubled adolescents interspersed with Kween Kelly in an empty apartment. Eventually, they all come together and execute some fairly simple air fisting choreography.

The highlight for me, though, is Clarkson herself. She looks great in her black ensemble. Check out the clip below.

Heading into the 2015 Billboard Music Awards telecast, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s first performance of “Pretty Girls” was without a doubt the performance everyone was looking most forward to. About two hours in, the duo did themselves proud. It wasn’t at all a trainwreck, and in fact, both ladies looked sensational. Britney, IMHO, hasn’t looked this great and comfortable on stage in years. Well done.

Mariah Carey also made a notable appearance as well. She hit the Billboard stage for the first time in 17 years. Perhaps she’s still recuperating from bronchitis, but Mimi wasn’t at her vocal best. Every note felt so laborious as opposed to the ease she belted out those notes years ago.

Meanwhile, Kelly Clarkson absolutely slayed her vocals during her “Invincible” performance as did Tori Kelly and Nick Jonas on “Nobody Love” and “Jealous” respectively.

Speaking of Jonas, he was in fine form tonight. Dude looked beyond sexy. Charlie Puth and Empire‘s Jussie Smollett also smoldered on stage during their respective performances. Check out all the videos below.
