Kelly Clarkson Covers ‘Purple Rain’ By Prince – Outstanding! (VIDEO)

Kelly Clarkson continued her tour with a stop in St. Paul, Minnesota on Tuesday night. During the show, she decided to shoutout a hometown legend, which sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Kelly covered “Purple Rain” by Prince, giving it a slightly more uptempo arrangement, while also retaining its ballad, slow jam-esque vibe. She delivers it with equal parts subtlety and vocal power, making for a real show-stopper. This was yet another outstanding vocal performance from Kelly.

Naturally, Kelly has been really delivering on this tour, offering a different cover song for each city. Over the course of the “Piece By Piece” Tour, she has covered…

“If It Makes You Happy” by Sheryl Crow in Illinois
“Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus in Indiana
“Habits” by Tove Lo in Detroit
“Blank Space” by Taylor Swift in Toronto
“Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC in Buffalo
“Stay” by Rihanna in Pittsburgh
“Jealous” by Nick Jonas at Radio City Music Hall in New York City

So yeah…Kelly has been one hell of a busy gal. But I would argue that her performances haven’t suffered for it one bit.
