The “Call Me Maybe” phenomenon just won’t die. And we kind of love it. During the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Kelly Clarkson joined the laundry list of alumni who’ve covered newcomer Carly Rae Jepsen‘s longest running No. 1 hit this year. Before going into her own rendition of the catchy pop tune Clarkson said, “I’m still slightly confused ’cause I’m like, ‘boy you better call me or just leave it alone.’ I don’t get the maybe part.” We swooned for that down-to-earth sassy declaration that there shouldn’t be any maybe when it comes to a boy calling her!
Over no other instrumentation but guitar strings, Clarkson has fun while never losing the pitch of her sound. At the end she confesses again that the song confuses her. “Oh my gosh I love that song, but it kind of confuses me,” she told the crowd. “Does it confuse anybody else? I don’t know. ‘Before you came into my life I missed you so’ — but who do you miss because you don’t know them?” Got to love Clarkson for her candor. Let the Kelly Clarkson covers keep on rolling.
