Watch: Kelly Clarkson Nails a Cover of Florence + the Machine's "Shake It Out"

We've already shared our 10 favorite Kelly Clarkson covers with you. But we'd be remiss if we didn't show you this honorable mention: Florence + the Machine's "Shake It Out." It's kind of hard to ruin a song that's already objectively perfect (IMHO), but Kelly always seems to know exactly what to do to make a cover work for her. Watch the video above. Then watch it again and again.

Speaking of Florence + the Machine (segues!), Florence Welch has announced she wants to take a year off before she records her next album: "The record company have put no pressure on me for the next album. They've said I can have as long as I want." Just don't take tooooo long, Flo. We need you around here.
