Watch: Kelly Clarkson Covers Taylor Swift’s “Shake If Off”
Just days after taking a crack at Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me,” the American Idol alum took the stage at Buffalo, N.Y., to pay homage to New York City’s newest Global Welcome Ambassador, Taylor Swift, with a gospel version of the songstress’ “Shake It Off.”
So, what does she make of the cover?
Just hours after video of the song surfaced online, Swift gushed about Clarkson’s version on her Twitter, writing:

Flattered, Clarkson replied:
On behalf of the hundreds of teenage girls who downloaded 1989: “Preach.”
