Kelly Clarkson debuted a rock cover of Ed Sheeran’s pop hit “Shvers” in the “Kellyoke” segment of her TV show.
Clarkson made a habit of performing a cover version of a song requested by his audience to open The Kelly Clarkson Show. For the March 1 edition of the show, the Grammy winner covered Sheeran’s acoustic guitar track, giving it a rock facelift with driving guitars and flashing red lights.

Clarkson has previously covered “The End Of The World” by Sharon Van Etten, “Where Is My Mind” by Pixies, “Welcome To The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance and “Karma Police” by Radiohead, among others for the segment, most recently delivering a moving cover of George Michael’s ‘Faith’. The cover would also be included on the Jack Antonoff-led project’s 2014 debut album, “Strange Desire.”
Clarkson is also reportedly working on a “haunting” new version of the 1995 single “9 To 5.” Their version of the classic 1980 single is for an upcoming documentary titled Still working 9 to 5.
Sheeran was recently announced as the featured performer on Camila Cabello’s upcoming single “Bam Bam,” which is set to be part of her upcoming album, “Familia.” Sheeran has also announced a series of warm-up shows taking place later this month ahead of her UK and European tour later this year.
The singer described the warm-up shows as “low-key” occasions where he “will try out all the new material”, warning fans to expect mistakes.
