This video is already going viral. Kelly Clarkson recently performed a live rendition of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” on tour and it’s killer.
I love me some Sam Smith. From the contagious “Money On My Mind” to the “La la” song to his uncanny resemblance to a young Boy George, this guy has a special place in my heart. I first discovered him on his virtually flawless breakout performance on “Saturday Night Live” last spring. Since then the brit has enjoyed a lot of success with his song “Stay With Me” — pretty much the movie trailer anthem of the year.
Despite its uber usage and threat of overplayedness, the song has some staying power (ahem) and this take via Kelly Clarkson’s pipes gives it a new blues-y life. She loves the song and I can’t argue with that.
It just so happens KC is a serial cover slayer. Check out this list of 22 songs she’s covered to pop perfection.
