Kelly Clarkson Channels Judy Garland During Captivating ‘Over the Rainbow’ Cover: Watch

Kelly Clarkson paid homage to a classic during The Kelly Clarkson Show.

For the episode’s Kellyoke segment on Friday (April 5), the 41-year-old pop star and TV personality performed an awe-inspiring rendition of Judy Garland‘s “Over the Rainbow.”

Donning a long-sleeved black dress, Clarkson captivated her audience with a passionate delivery of the ballad from The Wizard of Oz, originally performed by Garland in the 1939 film.

“Away above the chimney tops/ That’s where you’ll find me,” the Grammy winner belted out while backed on guitar by Jaco Caraco.

The beautiful performance ended with a flash of rainbow-colored lights in the background as the crowd cheered approvingly.

“Please put this on the next Kellyoke album so I can dance to it at my wedding,” one fan wrote in the comments section on YouTube.

Another added, “HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!!! Ok, Judy Garland is the Standard and no one will ever beat her, but (for me) this is the BEST VERSION of the many, many, many, many, many covers we all have heard!!! OF COURSE IT HAD TO BE KC!!!!”

“I think Judy would be proud of this. Knowing her legacy still lives on in this rendition made me smile,” a third user wrote.

“Over the Rainbow” holds special meaning for Clarkson. During an appearance on Today in 2017, she revealed that she often sings the 20th-century standard to her children, River Rose, 9, and Remington “Remy” Alexander, 7. The singer shares the kids with her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock.

“She’ll always cut me off and go, ‘Birds, mommy, birds.’ She always wants me to get to the bird part,” Clarkson said during the interview.
