Kelly’s Head Voice Notes, Effortlessly Sustained, Recall Whitney And Captivate With Old-School Charm

The collaboration between Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson on “Shallow” is an unexpected yet delightful surprise. Originally a powerhouse hit from Gaga and Bradley Cooper, the addition of Clarkson’s vocals elevates the song to extraordinary harmony and depth.

A talented YouTuber, Blighght, masterfully combined live renditions from Gaga and Clarkson, creating a mashup that’s convincingly authentic. It wasn’t until I read the video description that I realized it was a clever edit, given how effortlessly their voices meld together in this track. This unique rendition has garnered over 4.6 million views on YouTube, as showcased here:

The mashup kicks off with Clarkson’s rendition, delivering the opening verse with a subtle and heartfelt touch. Gaga follows suit, maintaining the mellow mood while accompanying herself on the piano. The dynamic shifts as they alternate in the pre-chorus with powerful vocals, culminating in a harmonious chorus that’s nothing short of mesmerizing.

The synergy of Gaga and Clarkson’s vocal prowess on this track is a real auditory delight, with Blighght’s arrangement making it seem as though they were destined to perform this song together. It’s clear that a live collaboration between the two would be phenomenal, given the undeniable vocal chemistry they share. Below is the full performance of Clarkson’s cover of “Shallow,” performed live in Green Bay, Wisconsin:

Clarkson has a gift for choosing covers that resonate with her style, and her rendition of “Shallow” is no exception, captivating her audience in Green Bay. She expressed her admiration for the original Gaga-Cooper performance and humorously noted the absence of a Bradley Cooper equivalent in her performance. Clarkson highlighted the similarities and differences between herself and Gaga, particularly their shared passion for music, and recounted a warm memory of Gaga’s graciousness early in her career.

Despite the contrast between the country-pop essence of “Shallow” and Gaga’s dance-pop repertoire, the song stands as one of Gaga’s most iconic tracks, leading her Spotify streams with over 2.2 billion listens, significantly outpacing her other hits like “Poker Face.”
