Kelly Clarkson powered through a cover of Adele‘s “Set Fire to the Rain” on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Tuesday (Feb. 7).
The track earned the British star her third consecutive No. 1 hit off 2011’s 21.
Sometimes I wake up by the door/ That heart you caught must be waiting for you/ Even though we’ve already parted ways/ I can’t stop looking for you/ “I set fire to the rain/ And I threw us into the flames/ When it fell, something died/ ‘Cause I knew it was the last time, the last time,” she belted out while dressed in a black brocade gown, wide belt, and matching tights.
Adele’s lush power pop ballad was her third consecutive Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 from her massive 2011 album 21, which also included chart-toppers “Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You.” Of course, the superstar has added titanic singles “Hello” and the recently Grammy-winning “Easy on me” to tell her list of no.1s.
Later in her talk show, Clarkson interviewed both Alison Brie and Michael Bolton, and gave her audience a preview of her latest gig hosting the NFL Honors with help from football great Michael Irvin.
Other recent Kellyoke selections have ranged from Mark Morrison’s ’90s R&B classic “Return of the Mack” and Camilla Yarbrough’s “Take Yo’ Praise” to the indie rock of Arctic Monkeys’ 2013 single “Do I Wanna Know?” and club-ready banger “Finally” by CeCe Peniston. P!nk was also recently invited to the studio for an hour-long rendition of her “Songs & Stories” segment.

ONLY A VOCALIST LIKE KELLY CLARKSON CAN DO ADELE’S “SET FIRE TO THE RAIN” RIGHT.
The beloved singer and TV host performed a rockier rendition of Adele’s classic on Tuesday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show.
My Band is behind her. Clarkson delivered Adele’s song with strong vibrato while holding the high notes with twangy vocals.
“There’s a side to you that I never knew, never knew/All the things you’d say/They were never true, never true,” she sang. “And the games you used to play/You’d always win, always win.”
