Nothing spells bliss like Kelly Clarkson covering one of Britney Spears' most iconic singles. During a recent Kellyoke segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson performed a sensational rendition of Spears' smash hit "Womanizer," and we are forever changed.
"Womanizer" was the lead single off Spears' 2008 album Circus, which also included the blockbuster singles "Circus" and "If U Seek Amy." The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.
To date, Clarkson has covered over 500 songs across genres on her talk show and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. New York Times contributor Lindsay Zoladz champions Clarkson for disproving the notion that contemporary pop songs are any less respectable than the classics.
"Kellyoke is a utopian place beyond the limiting logic of rockism and crotchety arguments that people stopped writing decent songs after [insert your arbitrary year here]," wrote Zoladz in a NYT article published June 9th. "Kellyoke believes that 'Jolene' can (and should!) coexist with 'High Horse,' 'Edge of Seventeen' with 'Dancing on My Own.'"
Not only are Kellyokes entertaining, they also encourage Clarkson's widespread fanbase to broaden their scope of musical taste.
"In a time of algorithmically controlled taste, Clarkson’s choices have a refreshing eccentricity and enthusiasm, as though she is making an idiosyncratically personal but always musically reverent argument that each of these compositions belongs in the modern pop songbook," Zoladz wrote in her article.
