The latest song to receive the Kelly cover treatment is Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," which the 33-year-old former American Idol performed Saturday during the Toronto stop on her Piece By Piece tour. The combination of a slowed-down tempo and Kelly's signature soulful touch made for breathtaking results.
High notes on fleek! We believe Taylor stated it best with her one-word description of Kelly's version.
Obviously, Kelly wasn't the first celeb to cover Tay's smash hit. Michigan punk rock band I Prevail gave "Blank Space" the edgy rock makeover we didn't know we needed (but ended up falling in love with). Then in February, Imagine Dragons followed up and totally stunned us with their soft rock/mashup rendition of "Blank Space."
Kelly Clarkson covered Blank Space and YES. http://t.co/qwhXSxPOEx— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 26, 2015
All those covers are amazing, but we gotta say, we're still trying to catch our breath from the sheer awesomeness of Kelly's cover. She's set the bar pretty high and so far no one's come close to snatching her title as the queen of cover songs.
