When in Detroit, do as locals do! At least, that’s how Kelly Clarkson handled her recent show in the Motor City last week when she covered Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”

Kelly borrowed a hooded sweatshirt from a friend backstage and told the audience her next song was going to be an audience request. She then went to town on the Detroit-bred rapper’s famous beats, dancing around the stage and reciting every lyric from memory.

Not to diverge completely from the Kelly we all know and love, she made sure to throw a few of her signature high notes in the mix as well.

So did Kelly hold her own as a rapper? We definitely think she did the popular track justice!
