Kelly Clarkson Covers Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” At The Mixtape Festival
By now we’ve heard way too many covers of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ubiquitous “Call Me Maybe” to be, like, “This is crazy!” about every one. But we’ve been enjoying Kelly Clarkson’s habit of taking fan requests for cover songs, and of course, it was only a matter of time before someone picked this one.
For this gig at the Mixtape Festival in Heshey, Pennsylvania, Kelly admits she actually mentored Carly Rae back in her Canadian Idol days, then takes the opportunity to dissect the “confusing” lyrics: “Who did you miss? Because you didn’t know them. But I don’t know. Maybe that’s one of those love waits around the corner… I don’t know.”
