I gave up on Idol in the final season. But no one should ever doubt the show’s lasting impact on the cultural landscape. And if there’s one thing we know Nigel is good at, it’s reminding people of that fact.
Case in point: bringing back Kelly Clarkson, and having her sing this heartbreaker of a number. Clarkson is 8 months pregnant, and unsurprisingly has trouble getting through the number without losing it. But it’s ok, because we will all do the same.
For those interested, the show’s iTunes savvy (better late than never) means a studio version is available for purchase. A remix of the whole album is also coming soon, for those of us hardcore Kellystans.
