Kelly Clarkson covers Mariah Carey’s “Vanishing,” and Mariah approves

Just because The Kelly Clarkson Show is on hold doesn’t mean we’ll have to do without Kellyoke.

Kelly took to Instagram Thursday and gave fans a cover of Mariah Carey’s 1990 song “Vanishing” from the bathroom of the Montana cabin where she’s staying in self-quarantine with her family.

She chose the song after gushing over it on The Voice this week and proving she was a superfan by knowing exactly what number track it was on Mariah’s 1990 self-titled debut album.

“This is for Mariah because I know she saw that Voice episode, where I was like, ‘Track 5 I know that song!"” Kelly says in her video.

After seeing the episode, Mariah gave Kelly a shoutout on Twitter.

“Kelly, I’ll take your track 5 and raise you a track 3 on Meaning of Life!” she tweeted, referencing the song  “Heat” from Kelly’s 2017 album.

Mariah later commented on Kelly’s Instagram cover of the song, writing, “Beautiful rendition!!! I know you’re usually working 30 hours a day 8 days a week so this must be quite an adjustment for you (as it is for us all!) Keep the videos coming!!”

Mariah ended the message with her own request: “Do ‘Whenever You Call’ next.”
