Kelly Clarkson is feeling inspired and impressed after hearing Billy Porter’s gospel cover of her hit song “Stronger.” The American Idol alumna, who regularly delights her audience and the internet with her singing skills, was blown away by Porter’s rendition of the song. In a recent episode of the NBC game show That’s My Jam, Porter covered “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” paired with the gospel, and the performance was nothing short of amazing.
Porter, who is an Emmy, Tony, and Grammy winner, was competing against Sarah Hyland and Darren Criss on the show. His partner for the game was none other than the legendary singer Dame Patti LaBelle. Before he even started, Criss and Hyland protested, “That’s not fair.” Criss joked, “I’m just gonna leave,” and Hyland pulled up a chair with a matter-of-fact “I’mma sit.”
Porter’s rendition of “Stronger” was nothing short of spectacular. He tackled the song with the confidence and skill of a seasoned performer, and when Patti LaBelle joined in on backup vocals, the performance reached another level of excellence. The audience, as well as Criss, Hyland, and host Jimmy Fallon, were blown away by Porter’s performance. However, no one was more impressed than Clarkson herself.
“That is the greatest cover that I have ever heard of any song I’ve ever performed,” Clarkson gushed on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “First of all you suck, Billy Porter. Because now I never want to sing it like I sing it again. I want to do the church version!”
Clarkson was so impressed with Porter’s performance that she invited him to perform a duet with her on “Stronger.” She extended “a personal invite” to Porter for “any time you want to sing that song like that with me.” She added, “Or I’ll just stand on the side of the stage and let you have it.”
