Kelly Clarkson was the first (and arguably) the biggest of all ‘American Idol‘ contestants in the show’s now-storied history. The singer, who beat Justin Guarini to take the inaugural ‘Idol’ crown, will head back to her old stomping grounds next Thursday, April  14, but she won’t be doing it on her own! Clarkson will be joined by country star Jason Aldean for duet of their country ballad ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay.’

‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ is a smash hit in the country world, which only serves to prove that Clarkson is a versatile artist who can hopscotch across genres with relative ease. The pop singer is also exemplifying this with the release of her new album this September.

On her Facebook page, Clarkson describes her new music and drops names like Prince, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin as sources of inspiration on the soulful upcoming album. Clarkson rarely disappoints, so we’re looking forward to hearing what direction she went in this time.

While we have to wait five months for Clarkson’s next platter to arrive, her Thursday night performance on ‘Idol’ is a welcome  dose of Clarkson in our lives. The singer also tantalized our eardrums with a live performance on ‘Ellen’ last week, where she sang a medley of her greatest hits.

Watch her performance of ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ with Jason Aldean at the CMAs in November for an idea of what you’re in for this Thursday.
