Kelly Clarkson belts emotional cover of Wynonna Judd's heartbreak tune I Saw The Light as divorce drags on

KELLY Clarkson poured all of her emotions into a cover of Wynonna Judd’s '90s country classic, I Saw the Light, in the latest edition of her Kellyoke series.

The mother of two made fans “misty” with tears as they felt her heartbreak in the song amid her divorce from husband of seven years Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly – who shares daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington, 4, with Brandon – filed for divorce back in June, battling over terms of the split, as well as the fallout from it, in the months since.

Despite going through a personal hardship, the 38-year-old singer has continued to work, bringing all of her pain into the covers she sings on her talk show.

Bare-faced, Kelly crooned Wynonna’s I Saw the Light on Tuesday, often having to close her eyes as she belted out the emotional song.

When she opened them back up, the floral shirt-wearing songstress looked to be fighting back tears with a bit of glossiness in them.


After feeling the power of the classic song and being lifted by singing it, Kelly ended her cover by giving the original artist a shout-out, saying with a smile: “Wynonna Judd! Get it!”

Fans made sure to prop the mother of two up in the comments, sending her lots of love and support as she goes through this hard time in her life.

One wrote: “Love your show, personality and your voice is just magical to listen to. There is nothing that ive heard you sing right back to idol that I havent enjoyed. ❤ keep it real”

Another said: “I can't decide which I adore more, Kelly's singing, or her totally amped up comments about the songs at the end. I love her passion and enthusiasm.”


Others commented, “Oh my Kelly, you made me misty” and “Thank you for brining moments of joy in a very frightening time.”

Recently, the starlet has also sung covers of These Boots are Made for Walkin’, I Don’t Love You, You Lied, and Exhale.

Not everyone has been kind to Kelly lately, though, and she had to slam a troll who blamed her “work ethic” for the demise of her marriage after she filled in for Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent.

The singer tweeted on Thursday: "Wow. Shaming a woman who has a great work ethic, is a great mom, and who steps up and fills in when a friends asks for a favor because that’s actually what 'good old country girls' do…. this can’t be who you are deep down. I have more faith in your heart. Aim higher please."

The American Idol alum announced her divorce from husband Brandon in June after seven years of marriage.

The Sun previously confirmed that the courts had approved a privately compensated judge, Judge Scott M. Gordon, for Kelly and Brandon's divorce proceedings until December 2021.

Kelly also asked for joint physical and legal custody of their children, and Brandon appeared to agree with her request.
