I was so happy Kelly won. I loveher song Stronger.
With just a pianist and a guitarist, Clarkson put her own bittersweet take on Patti Page’s ballad “Tennessee Waltz.” The best selling artist of the ’50s, who passed away in January at 85, received this year’s GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award.
Clarkson also paid tribute to the other Lifetime Achievement recipient, Carole King, with a soulful version of “Natural Woman.” King has won four statues in her career including Song Of The Year for “You’ve Got A Friend” and Album Of The Year for Tapestry in 1972. More than ten years ago, Clarkson actually performed the song as a contestant on American Idol.
