Clarkson has a talent for selecting covers that fit her style perfectly, and her rendition of “Shallow” is no exception. At the concert, she expressed her admiration for Gaga’s work on the song with Bradley Cooper, stating, “I thought she and Bradley Cooper did an awesome job. We’re gonna do our version of it ’cause obviously, I don’t have a Bradley Cooper here. So I’m just holding it down.”

Clarkson also shared her respect for Gaga, recalling a past encounter where Gaga, after opening for Clarkson at an event, sent her a handwritten note of thanks. Clarkson praised Gaga as “the nicest lady ever,” highlighting their mutual love for music despite their different styles.

Despite the departure from Gaga’s usual dance-pop anthems, “Shallow” has become one of her most iconic tracks. It stands as her top song on Spotify with 2.2 billion streams, significantly outperforming her second most popular track, “Poker Face.”
