Kelly Clarkson Honors Reba with “Fancy” at Kennedy Center Honors


Kelly Clarkson was definitely one of the highlights of the performances at the 41st annual Kennedy Center Honors which aired Wednesday (Dec. 26) on CBS. Clarkson sang “Fancy” as a tribute to one of the night’s honoree’s, Reba McEntire and simply crushed it.

The Kennedy Center released a small clip of Clarkson’s performance (watch below), but the whole show is available on CBS All Access. Besides McEntire, the 2018 honorees were Cher, Philip Glass, Wayne Shorter, and the creative team behind Hamilton.

Clarkson is married to McEntire’s stepson, and the American Idol winner started her number by thanking Reba for “being a rad grandma to our kids.”

Clarkson wasn’t the only one to honor Reba, as Lady Antebellum, Brooks & Dunn and Kristin Chenoweth each honored McEntire with a song.
