Kelly Clarkson isn’t just an American Idol, she’s also Demi Lovato’s idol. The 29-year-old “Stronger’ singer, who is currently on tour, performed Demi’s hit from Unbroken, “Skyscraper.”
Clarkson has allowed fans to pick a song for her to cover while she’s on her Stronger Tour. According to PopCrush she sang Cee Lo, Coldplay and Etta James so far on her tour, and when she hit the stage in Universal Studios Orlando, she belted out Demi’s “beautiful” tune.
Kelly said that fans on every stop of her tour have been requesting that she cover “Skyscraper.”
“I think this song has been requested every show,” she said. “Anybody like Demi Lovato? She’s a Texas girl. We sang together. She’s a sweetheart.”
“Anyway, she sang my song before, so I thought it would be cool to sing one of my favorites of hers,” she added.
Kelly said she never sang the song in front of a crowd, but she did not disappoint. She gave a powerhouse acoustic performance that would definitely put a big smile on Demi’s face.
“I love that song,” she said after singing it.” I think Demi is such a fabulous vocalist. …I’m just a big fan.”
