That's it. That's all you need to know. You can watch it in the video above. 

Let's be honest: Every song Clarkson sings — whether her own track or a fellow artist's — is delivered with such poignant emotion. But somehow, her take on "Beautiful Things" hits different. Everything from Clarkson's cautious tone during the verses to the larger-than-life range she shows off during the iconic chorus is enough to give anyone goosebumps. 

Everything to know about "Beautiful Things" by Benson Boone

Immediately upon its release, "Beautiful Things" became a worldwide hit at the beginning of 2024. Released as the lead single off Boone's debut album, Fireworks & Rollerblades, "Beautiful Things" rocketed up the charts, reaching number-two on Billboard's Hot 100 and topping lists in the U.K. and other countries.

Almost overnight, Boone had a hit on his hands. Today, the song is still as popular as ever, with countless artists and musicians covering it often. The American TikTok star-turned-worldwide-sensation has garnered rave reviews for "Beautiful Things," as fans applaud the song's lyrics for being honest while still being raw. 

In April, Boone declared, "I think vulnerability is a strength," and credited that same vulnerability for writing such an iconic song.

Even fans of The Voice know how fantastic "Beautiful Things" is — it most recently was performed by Season 25 finalist Bryan Olesen. (Unsurprisingly, the talented vocalist absolutely crushed it.)
