Kelly Clarkson is no stranger to making other artists’ hits her own — how else could she have won American Idol? But now that the “Dark Side” songbird has a roster of hits of her own, it’s quite a treat to hear her take on someone else’s. Especially when she does it this well. At the Hammond, Indiana stop on her Stronger tour, the Duets star brought out Paramore’s “The Only Exception” with such finesse we could swear Kelly wrote and recorded it herself. Do you prefer this to her cover of Madonna’s “Crazy For You”? Head below for a listen.
