Her voice was as sweet as honey!

Kelly Clarkson gave us a glimpse into her country music side by covering “Honey Bee” by her fellow The Voice Coach Blake Shelton. And her vocals sounded like honey itself.

“I’ve been thinking ‘bout us, you know I ain’t good at this stuff,” she started off the upbeat song with a slight twang in her voice.

She then kicked off the chorus with enthusiasm while her energetic backup singers harmonized behind her. "You'll be my sugar, baby, I'll be your sweet iced tea; you'll be my honeysuckle, I'll be your honey bee,” she crooned before an epic guitar solo began to play.

“I coulda said I love you, coulda wrote you a line or two, baby; all I know to do, is speak right from the heart,” she crooned with passion.

“You'll be my sunny day, I'll be your shade tree, you'll be my honeysuckle, I'll be your honey bee,” she sang while hitting a heavenly vocal flip.

This won’t be the last time we hear Clarkson honoring Blake Shelton, as she's set to return on The Voice as a Coach with the country star for Season 23. Even though it will be Shelton’s last season, in an interview with NBC Insider, Clarkson revealed she has no plans to hold back and is determined to come out on top.

"Will I go any easier on Blake knowing it's his last season? Do you know me at all? No!" Clarkson said while laughing. "Do I hope secretly that he wins his last season? Maybe. But am I going to let him have it? No! I'm going to work for my Artists, and I hope they win!" 

Shelton announced his departure from The Voice in October of 2022. "This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people; you are the best," he said in a statement.
