At a recent show in Wisconsin, Kelly Clarkson surprised fans with her cover of “Shallow,” Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s duet from A Star is Born.
Before jumping into the song, Clarkson expressed her admiration for Gaga. “It’s cool just to know that someone that talented is also really nice,” she gushed. “Anyway, I’ve been rooting for her for a while. This song, I just, I love it.”
Although her introduction to the cover was modest (“I hope it doesn’t suck. And if I do, I hope she doesn’t see it!”), Clarkson’s rendition was anything but. Her perfect execution—of both Cooper and Gaga’s parts—was met with screams and applause.
