People love their music gossip and hearing about who hates who and tweeted what about whom, but far more often the truth is that most real musicians have nothing but love  and admiration for each other. So it comes as no surprise that one of the realest and most talented singers currently out there, one Miss Kelly Clarkson, is a big fan of another great singer, Sam Smith. To show her love of Sam’s music she busted out a performance of his smash hit “Stay With Me” live in concert this weekend and it is just about as amazing and soulful as you would expect it to be.

Introducing the number, she said “It’s bluesy and it’s awesome. I love this song.” Her tremendous vocal power is on full display, even as she dials it back to match the mood of one of the most classic soul songs to emerge in recent years. Check out her killer performance below and prepare for the song to blow you away all over again.

With so much attention on his latest hits, we went through his entire writing and production catalog to pick out his 15 best hits. These songs range from country to pop, happy to sad and everything in between.
