The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” is an all-time favorite for the University of Southern California Trojan Marching Band to rile students up during sports events. But their latest venue was none other than The Kelly Clarkson Show on Monday (Jan. 20), when Kelly Clarkson led the instrumentalists in a moody-yet-rocking cover with her sweeping vocals.
Clad in a black-and-white polka-dot dress, Clarkson delivered a powerful performance. The lights were dimmed lower than usual, just as her singing started off deeper. The audience’s thunderous clapping matched the tempo of the college band’s, steadily rumbling the stage like it was an arena.
