Kelly Clarkson, an avid fan of Alanis Morissette, recently welcomed the iconic artist to The Kelly Clarkson Show for a performance that left fans in awe. The pair joined forces to sing one of Morissette’s most memorable hits, “You Oughta Know,” in a magical musical moment.
During Morissette’s appearance on the show, the two artists delved into the emotional depth of the alt-rock classic. Clarkson, who is no stranger to passionate performances herself, drew a parallel between “You Oughta Know” and her own hit, “Since U Been Gone,” noting that both songs elicit a powerful response from audiences. She shared her experience, saying, “I feel like this song is like my ‘Since U Been Gone.’ Like everywhere I go, they want to hear this song. The entire audience went crazy on tour. I mean, you saw everyone unleash every bad relationship they’ve ever been through and channeled it.”
Clarkson was curious to know if Morissette’s connection to “You Oughta Know” had evolved over the years since its release. Morissette revealed that she still loves performing the song and shared a charming anecdote about her landlord’s evolving musical taste. She recounted, “I do. I remember just having a vision of my landlord before Jagged Little Pill came out. [She] was lovely enough.
We had a great interaction. And after ‘You Oughta Know’ was released, I came by to pick up some stuff, and she ran into me and said, ‘I just have to tell you that I didn’t like your music when it first came out, but then I got divorced, and now I love you.'”
The highlight of the show, undoubtedly, was the duet. Clarkson and Morissette delivered a stripped-down rendition of “You Oughta Know,” with Clarkson harmonizing flawlessly on the high parts during the chorus. The audience erupted in cheers, and even a star-struck Clarkson dropped to her knees in disbelief when the song concluded. She excitedly exclaimed, “Oh my god! That just happened!”
This electrifying performance will surely go down in the history of The Kelly Clarkson Show as an unforgettable moment of two music powerhouses uniting to create something truly epic.
