Jennifer Lopez Fangirls Hard on Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Waiting For Tonight’ Cover
Jennifer Lopez wasn’t ashamed to be a fan of Kelly Clarkson’s sultry cover of “Waiting for Tonight.” Lopez reveals she’s been a longtime fan of Clarkson since the two worked together on american idol season 15.
Lopez’s reaction to Clarkson covering her song
The Kelly Clarkson Show gets a lot of attention for his musical series Kellyoke, where Clarkson performs covers of his favorite songs. One of the more recent covers featured Jennifer Lopez’s song “Waiting for Tonight.”
The original version of the song was released by girl group 3rd Party and has an energetic dance club vibe. Lopez released the song as part of his 1999 album, 6. When Clarkson announced that she would be performing a sultry cover of the single, she turned the track into a beautiful slow ballad.
Lopez tweeted a snippet of the song while expressing how much she loved Clarkson’s rendition of the track. She’s admittedly been a Clarkson fan for years since Clarkson became a guest judge on american idol before.
Lopez at the time, as well as judge Keith Urban, felt fondly of Clarkson’s performance of her song “Piece by Piece.” Urban and Lopez couldn’t stop the tears from falling over the emotional performance, even Clarkson herself got emotional. Lopez agreed it was one of the best of all time american idol moments.
“I was so into her performance and watching her and feeling so much for her, I didn’t even realize Keith Urban was falling apart next to me!” said Lopez.
It’s been a while since Lopez and Clarkson got together, so it was amazing to see them interact on social media. Maybe the next Lopez will release a cover of “Piece by Piece.”
Janet Jackson is also a fan of Kelly Clarkson
Another song that went viral on social media was Clarkson’s 2021 cover of Janet Jackson’s “Escapade.” Jackson liked the cover so much that she made a virtual appearance to show Clarkson her support.
Jackson thanked the host, saying “I think you’re an absolutely wonderful singer.” She went on to say that she would love to hear Clarkson cover more of her songs.
Mariah Carey is another megastar who has praised Clarkson for her covers. Carey called Clarkson’s cover of her 1990 song “Vanishing” a beautiful rendition and to keep the amazing covers coming.
The Kelly Clarkson Show airs weekdays and can be streamed by downloading the Peacock app.
