Kelly Clarkson Belts Another U2 Classic With ‘Mysterious Ways’ Kellyoke Cover

Kelly Clarkson has delivered another U2 cover to her studio audience on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

After performing “Pride (In the Name of Love)” on her show for MLK Day, on Friday (Jan. 26) Clarkson sang a slightly shortened version of U2’s “Mysterious Ways.”

Standing at her mic, Clarkson looked straight at the camera as she belted the chorus: “It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright/ She moves in mysterious ways/ It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright/ Lift my days, light up my nights, oh.”

The singer and talk show host wore a fitted, denim, flare-leg jumpsuit — which she called “a grown-up onesie” — for the episode, which featured guests including Jamie Oliver and Brittany Mahomes.

Clarkson, who told People she’s been walking a lot in New York City and has been following her doctor’s advice when it comes to diet, earlier this month joked about her wardrobe evolution amid her recent weight loss journey. “Dude, this is tight,” she said of a black, curve-hugging jumpsuit she wore at a Las Vegas show. “Like, I lost weight and they’re like, ‘Let’s get you into this tight s–t.’”

“Mysterious Ways” is on U2’s Achtung Baby album, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1991.

“Mysterious Ways” and “Pride (In the Name of Love)” aren’t the first U2 songs Clarkson has performed on The Kelly Clarkson Show. She also brought U2 tunes to her popular Kellyoke segment in 2021 (“Beautiful Day”) and 2020 (“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”).
