From the start of her ‘American Idol‘ days, Kelly Clarkson has proven to be good with covers — both when it comes to performing them and when it comes to other artists covering her (who can forget Ted Leo’s version of ‘Since U Been Gone‘?). Now we can add another one to the list: Kelly’s version of the Demi Lovato hit ‘Skyscraper.’

Kelly, who’s been performing hits by Etta James, Coldplay, Cee Lo and others on her current tour, unveiled her take on ‘Skyscraper’ during her stop at Universal Studios Orlando. Although the track was released less than a year ago, Kelly joined a growing list of artists who have publicly performed covers, including Jordin Sparks and ‘X Factor‘ contestant Drew.

It’s easy to see what keeps drawing people to Demi’s ‘Skyscraper’ — a song with deeply personal meaning to Lovato, it cracked the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100, was certified gold for sales of 500,000, and won a slew of honors, including a Teen Choice Award for Choice Summer Song. The leadoff single for Demi’s Top Five ‘Unbroken’ album, it’s already become her signature song, but that isn’t taking anything away from Kelly’s version. Listen to both versions below, and let us know in the comments which one you prefer!
