Kelly Clarkson Delivers Fiery Cover Of Elvis’ ‘Burning Love’

Kelly Clarkson covered Elvis Presley‘s 1972 hit “Burning Love” on Thursday, April 22, for the “Kellyoke” segment on her talk show “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

The singer, dressed in a black, paid tribute to the rock legend on her show accompanied by her Y’all band members, all in white suits.

“Your kisses lift me higher/ Like a sweet song of a choir/ You light my morning sky/ With burning love,” Clarkson sang, giving her own signature twist to the rock n’ roll song.

“Burning Love” was written by Dennis Linde. The song, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, became Elvis’ biggest hit single in the U.S. since “Suspicious Minds” in 1969 and his last Top 10 hit.

Clarkson had previously covered Elvis’ 1961 No. 2 hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and his 1958 No. 1 hit “Heartbreak Hotel” on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
