To start every episode of her Emmy Award-winning talk show The Kelly Clarkson Show, Kelly Clarkson always does a segment called “Kellyoke,” where she does a cover of popular songs that are requested by her audience members.

She’s covered Katy Perry, Dolly Parton, Nick Jonas, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, and so many more!

Sometimes, when her guests are musically inclined, she performs something fun with them, like when she and Tori Kelly sang the periodic table with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

During her October 15, 2019 episode, the talented Ben Platt was one of her guests. You may know him from the Pitch Perfect movies, or being the Tony Award-winning star of the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hanson, or from his singing career, or his Netflix show The Politician.

The two teamed up to sing a new arrangement of the song “Make You Feel My Love,” which Bob Dylan originally wrote in 1997 for his album Time Out Of Mind. It was actually first released commercially as a single by Billy Joel using the title “To My You Feel My Love.”

The next year, Garth Brooks released a version, using the title “To Make You Feel My Love,” and it appeared on the soundtrack for the film Hope Floats, as well as his Limited Series box set for his album Fresh Horses. Brooks’ version was nominated for Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song at the 41st Grammy Awards.

For Platt and Clarkson’s duet, which was the first-ever Kellyoke duet, the song began and each of the singers sang a verse solo, starting with the Voice coach. They joined together for a powerful third verse in harmony and it gave us chills.

Of the duet, Platt wrote on Instagram, “I sang with @kellyclarkson thanks to @kellyclarksonshow and it was a VERY JOYFUL EXPERIENCE.”

Platt was a guest once again on May 30, 2024 to promote his Broadway residency at the Palace Theater.
