Kelly Clarkson is a music and television superstar, but that doesn’t mean that she has no fears when it comes to performing. The host of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and coach on “The Voice” knows of one song in history that she’s too afraid to cover.
Clarkson’s hit talk show features a segment dubbed “Kellyoke,” where the star chooses a song to cover and make her own. The songs she has covered have come from many different genres and artists.
Clarkson opened up during season 20 of “The Voice” about the one song she’d be too scared to ever take on during the show, however.

“Ok but how amazing would @KellyClarkson covering @LuisFonsi’s #Despacito be?” the tweet reads.
