The Billboard Awards have taken place, and you know what that means: live performances!! Without a doubt one of my favourites of the night belonged to Kelly Clarkson, who sang the amazing Darkside which is taken from her latest album Stronger.
Looking elegant (and noticeably thinner) in a simple red dress, Kelly Clarkson channelled the performance style of Mariah Carey and delivered the song entirely static, behind the microphone. It was no less a spirited rendition of the rock/pop track for it.
I was worried on the middle eight that she was going to dodge the big notes, as she kept changing up the higher notes in the melody for lower ones, but I needn't have as Kelly Clarkson delivered when it mattered, hitting the top belted notes effortlessly.
Definitely one of this generations best singers.
