For anyone who’s exhausted on this Monday (March 15) — between losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time, the 2021 Grammy Awards running late on Sunday night, and the 2021 Oscar nominations being announced first thing in the morning — Kelly Clarkson knew just the thing to get people going to start their week off right.
She got The Kelly Clarkson Show viewers to “Keep Walkin’ On” with her take on Faith Hill and Shelby Lynne‘s 1995 song. The talk show host and her backup singers sped up the song and traded singing duties on the fourth verse when they sang, “What you gonna do, can’t pay the rent/ Yeah, what you gonna do when the money’s spent?/ What you gonna do when you just can’t cope/ Hey, what you gonna do when you’re outta hope?”
The performance was nothing short of dazzling, especially with the high-octane grand finale when Clarkson and her singers belted out the titular line: “Keep walking on.”
“Keep Walkin’ On” was featured on Hill’s sophomore studio album It Matters to Me from 1995, which peaked at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
