If you love that American Idol, Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson appears to be going country, you will love watching these performance videos of who she invited to her L.A. Nokia Theatre stop this week as part of her 2012 Stronger Tour. After picking up an ACM Award on Sunday night, Clarkson returns her gratitude by welcoming Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire and Michelle Branch (formerly of The Wreckers.) to sing a few of our favorite duets! Watch performances below!
Upon receiving the 2012 ACM Award with Jason Aldean for Single of the Year, “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” (which also won ACM Vocal Event of the Year) Kelly graciously stated:
“Thank y’all so much for welcoming me from the Pop world.”
Kelly welcomes Blake Shelton to sing Jason Aldean’s “Don’t You Wanna Stay” in a playful performance of the award winning love song, both seemingly having more fun as they tried to keep straight faces!
She introduces Blake to the crowd saying “I love him. He is so freaking awesome. I love his music. I love his cursing. I love how he messes with people all the time, that makes me like him more.”
Next up, Kelly joins Reba to perform her chart-topping, multiple award winning hit in Pop and Country, “Because of You” bringing a huge roar from the crowd!
In another great collaboration, Kelly invites Grammy nominated Michelle Branch to sing country chart topper “Leave The Pieces” the lead single off of The Wreckers 2006 debut album Stand Still, Look Pretty.
