Kelly Clarkson is recalling her emotional baggage back when she was young. The syndicated talk show host recently touched hearts with a soulful rendition of “Used to Be Young” by Miley Cyrus.

Kelly Clarkson Performs Stirring Cover of Miley Cyrus’s 2023 Hit “Used to Be Young”

During Wednesday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the pop singer took the chance to do a cover of Cyrus’s famous hit for the Kellyoke segment. Truly, like any other rendition she performed on the show, Clarkson did not disappoint. The “Breakaway” singer flaunted her compelling vocals, emotionally reflecting on the ballad’s lyrics.

“I know I used to be crazy / I know I used to be fun / You say I used to be wild / I say I used to be young,” she sang.

As expected, numerous fans were fascinated by Clarkson’s voice. They took to the comment section to praise her voice and the emotions she conveyed to the audience.


“Kelly can sing anything with such feelings and emotions. She’s amazing in talented beyond measure. She brings the words to life. Loved her since American Idol. God gave her so many gifts!!! She’s beyond blessed,” a fan wrote.

“Kelly can sing everything and make it sound like her own song,” another fan wrote.

Meanwhile, one person commented that Clarkson’s country twang is what made her voice gold. Another user stated that the pop singer indeed has the “best vocals,” giving them “goosebumps” everytime.

“Used to Be Young” served as an emotional aspect of her latest album Endless Summer Vacation. According to the Hannah Montana star, the song is a piece she “could perfect forever.”

She Describes Usual Non-Working Days with Her Kids in New York

After her relocation from Los Angeles to New York, Clarkson and her kids are gladly adjusting to their new life. Now, their typical days consist of walking around the city.

“We go walk the dogs a few times at the park. We’ll go for ice cream because my daughter will wear me down. We’ll go make slime and we go to the museum,” she said.

Aside from making memories with her kids, Clarkson thanks their outdoor activities for making her lose weight.

“Walking in the city is quite the workout,” she said. “And I’m really into infrared saunas right now. And I just got a cold plunge because everybody wore me down.”

Regarding her diet, she said she’s eating a “healthy mix.” She primarily accounts her weight loss to her doctor who she listens to now — something she didn’t do years back.

“And 90 percent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!” she said.
