Her powerful take on the track, from Abel Tesfaye’s 2018 EP ‘My Dear Melancholy’, is just one of a number of covers she has performed on The Kelly Clarkson Show recently. You can view her take on the song below.
Elsewhere, The Weeknd was recently hit with a plagiarism lawsuit over ‘Call Out My Name’ by producers Suniel Fox and Henry Strange.
Fox and Strange claim that ‘Call Out My Name’, which has over 700million views on YouTube, lifted elements from their 2015 track ‘Vibeking’, writing in their filing that the songs “contain quantitatively and qualitatively similar material in their respective lead guitar and vocal hooks, including melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic elements distinctive to ‘Vibeking.’”
In the wake of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show going off air after almost two decades, NBC also revealed earlier this year that Clarkson’s TV programme would be taking the daytime slot.
“By 2022, The Kelly Clarkson Show will be the star of our daytime entertainment schedules and an asset to our early afternoon newscasts,” Valari Staab, president of NBCUniversal Local, said back in May.
