VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson Sneak Preview: “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)”

It’s finally here! We’re only 11 hours or so away until the online premiere of VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson, the full five-song set of which will arrive tonight at 7 p.m. ET. We’ve already shared sneak previews of Kelly’s emotionally-charged rendition of “Dark Side” and her killer cover of Carrie Underwood’s “I Know You Won’t”, but since we can barely contain our excitement about this amazing set, we thought we’d whet your appetite this morning with another exclusive reveal.

To that end, please enjoy Kelly’s take on “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger),” the second single off her new LP, Stronger. Even with “Mr. Know It All” sitting pretty at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, “What Doesn’t Kill You” is experiencing a great deal of chart success itself; it cracked the Top 20 on this week’s chart. Kelly has described this driving, upbeat empowerment anthem as “one of my favorite songs on the record, purely because it makes me want to work out … and I don’t like working out!” Well, whether she likes (or admits) to working out or not, we can confirm that Kelly looked stunning in the red bandage dress she wore to her Unplugged taping.

Be sure to come on back to VH1.com this evening at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT when we reveal the full VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson set. And don’t forget to set your DVRs to record VH1 at 11 p.m. ET/PT tomorrow night to see this truly amazing Unplugged performance in glorious high-definition.

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.

Music Seen: Kelly Clarkson Looks Ravishing In Red At VH1 Unplugged (PHOTOS)

Kelly Clarkson VH1 Music Seen

VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson makes its highly anticipated premiere exclusively on VH1.com this Thursday night, November 17, at 7 p.m. ET. We’ve already told you how stunning Kelly looked when this show taped back in late October, and if you caught her cover of Carrie Underwood’s “I Know You Won’t” when we premiered it last week, you have an idea yourself. However, VH1 photographer Colin Gray just sent us a bunch of the photos that he was able to take that afternoon and we couldn’t resist sharing his insanely awesome work with you (as well as a quick video of Kelly explaining why she didn’t perform barefoot, like she usually does, while taping VH1 Unplugged). Enjoy!

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 Isn’t Going To Be Dating Any More Musicians Anytime Soon, Thankyouverymuch

Kelly Clarkson‘s video for “Mr. Know It All” is currently sitting atop the VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown, and on this past weekend’s show, she sat down with our buddy Jim Shearer to not only discuss her new record, but also her current relationship status. Jim mentioned that the guys from Gym Class Heroes were crushing on Kelly, but she quickly shot the matchmaking suggestion down. “I try not to date musicians,” she told our fearless host. “It’s all I’ve dated. Every guy I’ve dated is a musician. Obviously, it’s not working.”

Well, from our vantage point, Single Kelly is sitting pretty. As we mentioned, “Mr. Know It All” is currently blowing up on our Top 20 Countdown AND on the Billboard charts. Additionally, her VH1 Unplugged performance is getting ever closer! VH1 Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson will premiere exclusively on VH1.com at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 17, and you’ll be able to catch the special on your television the next night, Friday, November 18, at 11 p.m.

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.)
