“You’ve Been Kelly’d” Kelly Clarkson Nails Bowling For Soup Cover… And The Original Singer Agrees!

Kelly Clarkson has the ability to absolutely crush every song she sings. This time, Kelly Clarkson covered Bowling for Soup’s hit, “1985.” I couldn’t be more obsessed — and neither could the OG singer, Jaret Reddick!

Jaret shared his reaction to Kelly’s cover on TikTok. He’s clearly impressed. She’s singing the song expressively and with an ease that only she can do.

“This is amazing. I’ve met Kelly several times and she’s always so sweet. And man, can she sing!” said the Bowling for Soup star about Kelly Clarkson.

Can you imagine witnessing this vocal powerhouse cover your song?

Fans found lots of fun ways to send some love about this cover.

“You’ve been Kelly’d. I think there’s a support group at this point,” commented one viewer.

“Um yeah that’s kinda awesome,” commented musician Edwin McCain.

Finally, one fan suggested the song’s ownership may have shifted.

“My condolences. This is Kelly’s song now.”

We definitely weren’t expecting a Kelly Clarkson/Bowling for Soup mashup, but we’re so glad it happened. I mean, it just fits her voice perfectly (but what doesn’t?).
