Kelly Clarkson Plays ‘Would Your Rather’ Ranking Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey

Kelly Clarkson had to make some hard decisions in a new video from her talk show. The Voice coach was forced to choose between her favorite recording artists from the ’90s in a game of “Who Would You Rather.”

Clarkson’s rationale for which artists she would choose was just as hilarious as we’ve come to expect from her. But the toughest decision came when she was asked to pick either Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey — two of her biggest idols.

Kelly Clarkson Chooses Between ’90s Artists

Clarkson started the game off with the perfect response. When asked whether she would take MC Hammer or Sir Mix-a-Lot home to meet her mom, she responded by saying that she has “a lot of booty in my family,” so Sir Mix-a-Lot would feel right at home.

The singer was also tasked with choosing between TLC’s wardrobe and No Doubt’s wardrobe. Even though Clarkson has coached on The Voice with No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani, she went with TLC, explaining that she prefers baggier clothes.

As far as who she would trust to keep a secret, Clarkson chose Brandy over Monica. She shared that she recently watched Brandy’s Cinderella with her daughter River.

Would Clarkson Rather Sing With Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey?

The biggest decision of the game came when Clarkson was asked who she would rather perform with at the Super Bowl Halftime Show — Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey. She said it would be “pretty miraculous” to sing with Houston, who passed away in 2012.

But since Carey was the only choice that’s currently possible, Clarkson chose her. That didn’t stop her from waxing poetic about both women, however. She said they were “two of the reasons why I’m a singer.” Clarkson went on to rave about their song “When You Believe” from The Prince of Egypt, saying, “I believed.”

“Everybody used to pit them against each other, too,” Clarkson recalled. “And let’s be real, they’re very different.”

She gave Carey credit as a songwriter, and shared her love of Houston’s movie The Bodyguard, saying she “could watch that every month.” And we could listen to Clarkson talk about her favorite artists every month — or even more.
