In advance of Kelly’s upcoming Christmas special, ‘Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale,’ a clip of her performing her hit song, ‘Under The Tree’ has been released, and it’s got us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Read on to watch it!
We didn’t think it was possible, but Kelly Clarkson has actually made a modern Christmas song on the level as Mariah Carey‘s genius hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” with her song, “Underneath the Tree.” Think we’re exaggerating? Then you haven’t seen Kelly perform the song, like in this preview clip from her upcoming special, “Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale.”
Kelly Clarkson Performs ‘Under The Tree’
In the video, Kelly takes the stage with a huge backing band, and cranks out her hit Christmas song while snow falls and Christmas lights glisten.
Kelly herself looks totally in the holiday spirit, in a gorgeous cream gown with red lace embellishments.
It’s not easy to make a Christmas song good enough to be permitted into the pantheon of holiday songs, but we think Kelly’s done it with her huge, soaring voice and the song’s upbeat, classic feel.
