Kelly Clarkson’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night confirmed two things: The girl can nail any style of music, and Tinder’s reputation as a hook-up site is still intact.
Accompanied by a pianist and a trio of back-up singers, the three-time Grammy-winner put melodies to five profiles lifted from the popular dating website — where members swipe right if they’re interested, left to move on.
Clarkson gives Pat, 27, a Patsy Montana-esque yodel while he tells potential partners he’s “at the Westin in Fort Lauderdale.” Justine, 25, gets a clap-along gospel soundtrack to her words, “I love my hairless cat, baking cookies & smoking blunts.” And Alvin, 32, is gifted with an upbeat pop melody that takes the grimace out of his profile: “I have a foot fetish and willing to pay for your mani pedi.”
Pregnant with her second child, Clarkson squeezed in the Kimmel appearance during a swing through Southern California on her current Piece by Piece Tour. She’s been crossing the country this summer with a crowd-pleasing mix of new songs, old favorites and cover tunes by the likes of Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift and Rihanna.
