Kelly Clarkson Returns to American Idol
Former American Idol Kelly Clarkson is taking one more trip down memory lane, as TVGuide brings word that she’ll be singing in front of the judges one more time.
Clarkson, who made a visit to Idol last season to give a farewell performance for Simon Cowell, is working on getting all the coverage she can as the release date for her fifth album draws closer, which songwriter Claude Kelly talked about in an interview with MTV.
While she might not be the biggest name that Idol launched, Clarkson will always have the honor of being the first, and longtime fans of the reality competition will probably enjoy seeing her return to where it all began to perform a duet of ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ with Jason Aldean.
Clarkson won’t be the only familiar face returning to the American Idol stage because R&B singer Rihanna will also be returning for another performance, just a little over a year after her first appearance on the show.
Check out Kelly Clarkson’s performance on this Thursday’s American Idol, and don’t forget about last week’s re-cap, just in case you missed the stunning elimination.
