Kelly Clarkson covered Olivia Rodrigo‘s single “Vampire” for “Kellyoke” during the Halloween episode of the “The Kelly Clarkson Show” on Tuesday (October 31).
“The way you sold me for parts as you sunk your teeth into me/Bloodsucker, dream crusher/ Bleeding me dry, like a damn vampire,” Clarkson, dressed as a blood-sucking vampire, sang with a man fully-clad in black, accompanying on piano. Her face was painted to look ghostly pale and drops of painted blood dripped from her smoky eyes.
“I love Halloween so much,” Clarkson said after singing the hit song. “We are all different versions of vampires,” she added. “I am a Rock and Roll Vampire. That’s what I’m claiming, ’cause we just went with it!”
“I just sat down at the piano one day and played these chords that felt kind of gothic to me,” Rodrigo told Rolling Stone in June about the song’s inspiration. “I think there’s a lot of vampire lore to be played with like ‘You only come out at night’ and stuff like that. There’s a lot of fun songwriting fodder in there.”
She added, “I think it reflects the journey that I was going through and the anger that gets pent up in an experience like the one that the song’s about.”
