It’s been confirmed, much to the chagrin of many fans: Beyonce lip-synched the national anthem at yesterday’s Presidential Inauguration.
And while this is common procedure for many singers during live events, the same rep who outed Beyonce has come out and made it clear:
Kelly Clarkson performed live during her time on stage. There was no back-up track assistance involved with this amazing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” rendition:Kelly Clarkson “My Country Tis of Thee”

So much for Miss Independent.
Kelly Clarkson made an exciting announcement tonight on Twitter, writing of boyfriend Brandon Blackstock:
“I’M ENGAGED!!!!!” I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.”
Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager, has been dating the original American Idol for about a year. He’s the son of Clarkson’s manager, Narvel Blackstock, who is married to Reba McEntire.
This development may make it difficult for Clarkson to write any more angry woman anthems, but whatever. She’s gettingMore >
Kelly Clarkson took a different tact than usual during a concert in Independence, Missouri yesterday.
But the artist had a very good reason: It was 10 years and one day ago when she took home the first-ever American Idol title. Wow. That makes us feel old, and also appreciative of Clarkson.
Watch her relive that moment via her show-winning single now:More >
Kelly Clarkson hit up two more cities during her latest tour this weekend, covering a recent hit song at each stop.
And as the first-ever American Idol has been taking fan requests everywhere she goes, THG has been posting them for readers to enjoy. Because she’s simply that awesome.
Most recently, Clarkson traveled back over a decade and treated us to a version of TLC’s “No Scrubs.” The performance proceeded Kelly traveling back just a few seconds and doing up Carly Rae Jepsen’s summer smash.
On Saturday in Mansfield, MA, meanwhile, it was time for some Kings of Leon. Watch Clarkson coverMore >
It might not get any more awesome than Kelly Clarkson.
The original American Idol is touring the country at the moment, taking fan requests at each stop and then covering classic tracks. She recently knocked Anna Nalick’s “Breathe” out of the impressive park and prior to that she went with a Britney Spears single.
But outside of Detroit last night, Clarkson put on her coolest performance yet, donning a grey hoodie and making like Eminem.
Watch her version of “Lose Yourself” now, compare it to when Taylor Swift also covered this rap smash and then decide: Who did it better?More >

… and after the jump, .fun’s “We Are Young” …

We are crazy for Kelly Clarkson.
On Saturday night – the evening before this American Idol champion belted out the national anthem and Madonna performed at halftime of Super Bowl XVLI – Clarkson took to the stage in Louisiana and also took a few fan requests.
Among them? “Crazy for You” by the Material Girl herself, a track that Kelly adorably told the crowd reminded her of a date at the skating track with some dude named Michael Webb. Note to Michael Webb: we hope you regret letting this one go.

While Christina Aguilera had the floor during Etta James’ funeral on Saturday, and used it to belt out a version of “At Last,” former American Idol champion Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to the late, great artist in her own way last week, as well.
“This isn’t ‘At Last’ because everyone really covers that and so I wanted to do my favorite, actually,” Kelly told a crown in New York City. “My favorite song is ‘I’d Rather Go Blind.’ So, this is for Etta!”
On Saturday night, meanwhile, during a performance in Pennsylvania, Clarkson also announcedMore >
Demi Lovato and Kelly Clarkson took to the stage as a pair last night at Z100′s annual Jingle Ball concert in Madison Square Garden and delivered a heartfelt musical message to fans:
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!
Could Demi match the first-ever American Idol note-for-note? Of course not. But who out there can?!? Sit back and let these two artist serenade you with a holiday classic now:

Appearing on The View yesterday to hype her new album, the original American Idol cited her hometown of Burleson, Texas and explained:
“I’m from a small town so, like, everyone’s married with children or about to have children. So it’s a little hard when you go home and people are like – and that’s why people think I’m gay – because they’re like ‘Why aren’t you married?’ And I’m like, ‘it doesn’t happen for everyone right off theMore >
Kelly Clarkson is promoting the heck out of her upcoming album.
But the original American Idol isn’t posing for magazine covers or giving an unusual number of interviews. Instead, she’s actually giving fans a few free listens from “Stronger,” which comes out on October 24.
First, there was “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger).” Then, “You Love Me.” Now, let’s all sit back and listen to Clarkson croon on “Dark Side.” Everybody’s got a dark side, do you love me? Can you love mine? she asks below…
Kelly Clarkson takes it to an ex-boyfriend in her latest single.
The inaugural American Idol champion has given fans their first listen to “You Love Me,” a sample off her upcoming album, “Stronger.” It hits stores on October 24 and this is another strong track about woman-empowerment.
“You didn’t let me down, you didn’t tear me apart, you just opened my eyes while breaking my heart,” Clarkson croons on the song. Listen now and then go back and do the same for the first single off the CD:
Kelly Clarkson is not gay. She would like people to know that.
But the first-ever American Idol is coming out with a new album on October 24. It’s titled “Stronger,” a name taken from one of the singles featured on the CD and just released online this week by Clarkson.
“Hey ya’ll – I heard that some versions of ‘What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)’ started showing up online,” Clarkson blogged yesterday. “I want you to hear the real thing! Check it out!”

Kelly Clarkson may be a miss who thinks of herself as independent.
And she may not hook up and she may be singing about a guy who is a “know it all” these days. But the singer wants to make one thing clear: she’s straight.
“People keep saying I’m gay, and I’m not,” the original American Idol tells E! News. “I’m pretty sure I’ve never made out with a girl. It’s just not helping me because I’m straight. No boy wants to hit on me because I make mean songs about them, and they think I’m gay.”
