Kelly Clarkson delivered a powerful cover as part of the Kellyoke segment on her talk show this week. The Voice coach performed “Gaslighter” by The Chicks.

Kelly Clarkson Covers The Chicks
Today on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the host performed a cover of “Gaslighter,” the title track off the Chicks’ 2020 album. The song addresses someone who’s lied, calling them out for their behavior.
Clarkson was backed up by two singers and her band Y’all. She seemed to really be feeling the song, even giving a wink to the camera at one point. Her voice soared at the song’s finale.
Some fans think Clarkson may have been drawing from her own experience while performing the song. She filed from divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock last year, and the couple’s messy split has made headlines.
Was Clarkson Sending a Message to Her Ex?
“Ooooh she felt the lyrics on this one. Go off, KC!” one fan wrote in the comments of the performance.
Another user commented, “The lyrics seems like a message to someone who shouldn’t be named!”
Someone else wrote, “Oooh she related hard to this one!”
It seems like a lot of fans think Clarkson was sending a message to her ex. The pair have been in some legal battles over the past several months, as Blackstock was also Clarkson’s manager.
It’s not the first time fans have connected Clarkson’s song choice to her real life. Her previous cover of “I’m Movin’ On” by Rascal Flatts also seemed to be filled with real emotion.
