Yesterday, Kelly Clarkson made a stop at The Ellen Degeneres Show to perform her new single, “Mr. Know It All.” The track is the lead-off single from Kelly’s upcoming album, “Stronger” which is due for release on October 25th. So, it’s no surprise that Clarkson is starting the press tour to promote the debut.

I actually love this track a lot but this performance is a little lackluster for me. Kelly’s vocals sound great but she didn’t seem super engaging. The track is also a pretty easy listen without a lot of flare. So, without anything happening on stage, I feel as though the performance came and went and nothing happened in between. But, you can decide for yourself when you check it out below.

After her performance, Kelly talked about her not so secret crush on Friday Night Lights star and now Emmy winner, Kyle Chandler. She goes on to tell Ellen that he’s the perfect kind of man but they don’t make them like that anymore. She also found out he’s married so she can’t stalk him now. Awkward.

Much to the delight of her fans (ahem…Donovan), the original “Idol” Kelly Clarkson has released the official album artwork for her upcoming album, “Stronger” and she looks absolutely stunning. She went with “Stronger” as the title of the album “mainly because the entire album is very much about empowerment and just strength overall and I love singing songs like that,” said Kelly Clarkson.

The album is set for release this fall on October 24th. Her first single, “Mr. Know It All“, debuted last week and is currently in the top 40 of USA TODAY’s AC and Hot AC charts. I absolutely love the song. It’s written by Ester Dean, Brian Kennedy and Brett James, and was previously described by some people as a fusion of Bruno Mars and P!nk. I can totally see that and it definitely makes me really excited about the rest of the album. If this song, and some of the other track leaks are any indication, the album is going to sound incredible and be very empowering, as her music always is.

While some singers *cough* Nicole Scherzinger *cough* can’t wait to step out on their own and leave the girl group that made them famous, Kelly Clarkson is doing the complete opposite. In a surprising move, Clarkson is joining forces with her two backup singers to create “Already Famous“. She follows in the footsteps of Miranda Lambert, who also recently created a girl group side project.

Joining Clarkson on Already Famous are longtime friends Jill Pickering and Kate Rapier. The trio have already hit the studio and begun to record new music. They premiered a small snippet of one of their songs via Twitter. “I’m Not The Only One” is a ballad that seems to take a more indie-pop route than Kelly’s previously released solo music.

Two More Kelly Clarkson Leaks

In: Donovan, Music

Apparently today is the unofficial Kelly Clarkson leak new songs day. Earlier today, Patrick shared “What Doesn’t Kill You” and now I’m giving you a first listen at two more tracks from her upcoming fifth studio album. Three new songs from the original American Idol all in one day. Today is off to a great start. Clarkson must be livid about all these leaks. In previous instances, Kelly has been very vocal about her unfinished work hitting the internet. When half her last album leaked, the German hacker responsible was sentenced and is currently behind bars. I wonder if the same fate awaits the person uploading all of Kelly’s new tracks. Maybe she’ll be more lenient this time, which brings me to the first track.

The first of the two tracks I have for you today is “I Forgive You“. The beat and arrangement is very Kelly Clarkson, but the lyrics reflect a more grown-up Kelly. Instead of being the angry “Since U Been Gone” or “Never Again” singer, this Kelly chooses the path of forgiveness instead of kicking her man to the curb. Check out a snippet of the lyrics:

“I forgive you, we were just a couple of kids trying to figure out how to live, doin’ it our way. No shame, no blame, cuz the damage is done, and I forgive you.”

Kelly Clarkson’s “What Doesn’t Kill You” Leaks

In: Music, Patrick

Another song has leaked from the original “American Idol,” Kelly Clarkson and it’s another goodie. Recently, I wrote about a leaked song called “Let Me Down” that also delivers and certainly makes me eager to get the whole album (if these two tracks are even on it). The sound and lyrics from this new song, “What Doesn’t Kill You” definitely falls in line with Kelly’s other empowering comeback songs like “Never Again,” and “Since You’ve Been Gone” (although I can’t say it is at the same level as those mega-hits). Here are some of the lyrics:

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stand a little taller, doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone. What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter, footsteps even lighter, doesn’t mean I’m over, cuz you’re gone.”

The version below is a tad slowed down from the original version (which I’ve also heard), but great nonetheless. Enjoy!

About a month ago, a teaser was released for what might be Kelly Clarkson‘s upcoming single, “Let Me Down” and it sounded amazing. Well now that the full song has leaked, you’ll be happy to know that the full version doesn’t disappoint!

Clarkson starts off the song by singing, “I think I might be a fortune teller, I read your face just like a letter. The funny thing about forever, is it comes with a side of never, never…” In the rest of the song, she sings about how she can see right through the person she’s singing about, knowing that they are only going to let her down when it counts – but knowing and doing are two different things. “You’re only gonna make me feels so crazy, but when I think we could be something, you go and let me down, let me down….”

Listen to the track below. It sounds like it has a little bit of a “P!nk” influence, which for Kelly’s powerhouse voice is definitely not a bad thing! This has to be her next single – you’re gonna love it!

You looking for a special performer for an upcoming event? A celebrity perhaps? Well, ever wonder how much former Idol contestants make per gig after they’ve completed the star-making process that is American Idol? Well, a list has been compiled of the top earners from the ten past season, and fees range anywhere from $5,000 all the way up to a whopping $500,000.

As you would probably guess, the top earners include Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, but who else is up there at the top of the list? And, who’s at the bottom? You know, not that it’s a bad thing. There are fifteen people on this list, so at least out of the thousands and thousands of people that have been on this show, this handful of people are making a living from their singing careers. Good for them! Check out the list below!

The wait is almost over! Although the summer is only just beginning, the one good thing about when it ends is that Kelly Clarkson‘s new album will finally be out! The first single will drop in July and the album (which is her fifth studio album) will be be released in September. Clarkson said the album was influenced by artists that include: Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead, and a little bit of country. For now, let the teasing continue…

The 29-year old just released a little snippet of one of the songs called “Let Me Down“. The verdict? It sounds like it’s going to be a hit for sure! In the teaser, Kelly belts out the following lyrics: “You’re only gonna let me down when it counts, you countdown.” Ugh, that voice! She’s one of a kind.
