Katy Perry Quips She Can ‘Never’ Sing Hit Song Again After Kelly Clarkson Belts It Out

After Kelly Clarkson belted out one of Katy Perry’s hit songs “Wide Awake,” the “American Idol” judge quipped that she “can never sing it again.”

During a recent episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” the host treated viewers with her cover of Perry’s popular 2012 song.

The clip of her singing was posted on the show’s social media page and it was clear from everyone’s comments on the post, including Perry’s, that Clarkson nailed it, as reported by Bustle.

“This performance is perfection!” one person wrote on Instagram. “I love the rearrangement.”

Another fan added, “This might be better than the original.”

While a third person wrote, “Once Kelly covers your song, it’s no longer your song. She makes it her own and you never get it back.”

Amid the buzz, Perry herself reacted to the performance. “Ok ,dang I can never sing that again,” she said.

The clip was also posted to X, and received a similar array of compliments.

Released as the last single from her hit album “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection,” Perry’s song peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She later said the inspiration from the song came from “major life changes,” including her divorce from actor Russell Brand, per Bustle.

“It’s kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the last two years,” Perry told MTV. “I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of the maze. There’s good parts, there’s bad parts, and the whole time there’s the younger version of me leading me through.”

Clarkson, who rose to fame by winning the very first season of “American Idol” in 2002, previously covered two other Perry hits during the musical segment of her talk show that airs on NBC. One was the 2013 hit song “Roar” and the other the 2011 song “The One That Got Away.”

In 2020, Clarkson congratulated Perry on her 2020 single “Daisies,” writing on Twitter, which has since been rebranded to X, “Get it [Katy Perry] you look BEAUTIFUL in this video #bytheway.”

Perry replied to Clarkson, “Thank you friend.” She added two emojis, including a smiling face with heart-shaped eyes and a heart.
