When we first saw Duets judge Kelly Clarkson with her new blonde hair, the voting consensus was strongly in favor of her natural brown locks. But at last night’s MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, she rocked the stage and sold us on her hot new ‘do.

Kelly — who treated the MMVA audience to her latest single, “Dark Side,” and her mega-hit anthem “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” — wore her golden hair down during the concert, while showing off her killer figure in a sexy fitted dress.

We’re really into Kelly’s new look — are you? Watch her performance in the video below, and weigh in with your thoughts in the comments!
