Clarkson switched things up a bit during a concert in Perth, Australia when she decided to cover a song by a male country singer. That’s because Clarkson felt it was only fitting to pay tribute to an Australian singer, and of course Keith Urban came to mind.
That night, Clarkson covered Urban’s emotional crossover hit “Tonight I Wanna Cry,” which he co-wrote along with songwriter and producer Monty Powell. Clarkson fully committed herself to the character of the song, and the emotion poured through in every word she sang.
When the camera zoomed in closer on Clarkson’s face, it actually looked like she was fighting back tears. We’re sure by the time her performance was over that there wasn’t a single dry eye in the room.
