Miley Cyrus Gets Help From Madonna At Her Unplugged “Hoedown”

Miley Cyrus has been pushing buttons and making headlines in the past year with her edgy new look, so it makes sense that she’d want to team up with the original singer provocateur: Madonna! According to a new interview with MTV, Lady Madge is lent a hand at the Twerk Queen’s Unplugged taping yesterday, setting tongues wagging with some good ol’ fashion grinding and…well, tongue wagging.

Learn To Love Kelly Clarkson’s “Dark Side” As She Performs On VH1 Unplugged

Everyone’s got a dark side, even Kelly Clarkson, and she’s asking if you can love hers. So, can you? We know we can, especially after watching this exclusive sneak peek video of Kelly singing “Dark Side” on VH1 Unplugged, which will debut on VH1.com tomorrow night (Thursday, November 17) at 7 p.m., followed by the on-air premiere at 11 p.m. on Friday. In fact, this is what we love best about Kelly — that she’s just a regular girl. Acknowledging the pitfalls of her personality, Kelly invites us all to be imperfect without letting us (or herself) be any less perfectly loveable.

Along with Kelly’s moving performance of “Dark Side,” Unplugged will feature Kelly’s cover of fellow Idol Carrie Underwood’s “I Know You Won’t” and yes, that gorgeous red dress Kelly wore on the day. If all this is starting to make you impatient, you can watch more sneak previews of Kelly talking about her ominous dreams and forgetting lyrics, as well as gushing over Mumford & Sons and Adele.

Kelly Clarkson Unplugged: On Forgetting Lyrics And Ominous Dreams

We’re gearing up for the airing of VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson, debuting exclusively on VH1.com at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 17, which will be followed up the next night with the show’s on-air premiere (11 p.m. on 11/18 on VH1). For now, we’re swooning over snippets of Kelly dressed like a vixen in red and just being her goofy self in front of the camera. We’ve already seen her gushing about her contemporaries, refusing to date musicians and covering Carrie Underwood, and now we’ve got her chatting about forgetting lyrics and her ominous pre-concert dreams.

The ever adorable, completely relatable Kelly reveals that she’s often left stumped by the lyrics to her own songs, and is renowned for forgetting them when on stage. With a cheeky grin on her face the singer admits, “I’m not going to lie. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new song or an old song, I will screw up the lyrics.” Kelly’s forgetfulness is endearing, and as she points out, at least she’s not lip synching: “That means I’m singing live, so that says something.” In the second sneak peek clip (below), Kelly talks about ominous dreams she has before shows of falling down on stage. She tells how following a dream of falling, she almost fell on stage at UK’s X Factor because she “was trying to be all sexy in heels.” Awwwww, Kelly, we really love your honesty!

Kelly Clarkson Covers A Fellow American Idol, Carrie Underwood, For VH1 Unplugged

We’re just one week and oh, say, six hours away from the premiere of VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson! Her five-song Unplugged set will debut exclusively on VH1.com at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 17, but we absolutely, positively couldn’t wait that long to share the above clip with you.

As part of her set, Kelly decided to cover “I Know You Won’t,” which was originally recorded by another American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood, on her 2007 LP Carnival Ride . Carrie’s version is gorgeous, no doubt, but whereas her version is languid to the point of being passive, Kelly infuses her take—which, we should add, is brought to you by our friends at Starburst—with her trademark combination of dignity, strength, and a touch of heartbreak. Try to listen to the whole thing and not get goosebumps, we dare you.

Kelly Clarkson Gushes About Her Love For Adele And Mumford & Sons

VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson is set to make its online premiere exclusively on VH1.com at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 17. Her five-song performance, the final setlist of which is still under wraps, was totally phenomenal, and it was all we could do to keep ourselves composed when we sat down with her after the show for a few minutes.

One of the things we asked her about were her favorite VH1 Unplugged performances, and the two names that immediately came to Kelly Clarkson‘s mind were Mumford & Sons and Adele. Which one of these two artists does Kelly hope that “she’s never on the same awards show” with, and which one’s music does she describe as unusually sexy? There’s only one way to find out! (And that’s by clicking play on the video above, natch.)
