Kelly slays her cover of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”
By now, you’re totally used to us bursting with pride and envy over Kelly Clarkson’s sick voice, hot body, and gorgeous blonde hair. You are not, however, used to us gushing over Kelly Clarkson and her insanely amazing… Eminem covers? Yep, never woulda seen that one coming.
Watch Kelly Clarkson cover Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” after the jump.
As you might remember, while out on her “Stronger” tour, the Best Video With A Message VMA nominee has been taking cover song requests via Twitter. In recent weeks, Clarkson has put her own spin on Britney Spears’ “Everytime,” and changed our lives with her cover of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak.” Now we’re full-on obsessed with her version of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.” Yes, we said EMINEM, and we agree: SHE’S THE BEST. As she threw on a hoodie to get in character, Kelly confessed: “I’m being very brave with this fan request.” Shortly after, Kelly whipped Eminem’s verses into lush melodies putting her own pop/R&B spin on the otherwise aggressive and passionate tune. Sure, we would have killed to see Kelly go in on Eminem’s verses full-on rapper style, but she gets about 100,000 extra points for even attempting to touch this ahem, Oscar-winning song. Props on props on props!
