Kelly Clarkson and Garth Brooks had an impromptu jam session to "Shallow" on her talkshow, The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Prior to the performance, Clarkson spoke about how Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, had recently covered the song themselves. Brooks stated an audience member requested he and his wife sing it, and he felt enticed to do it. His wife had seen the movie, and while he had not, he said the opening chords drew him in, "That's every country song and James Taylor kind of mixed."
"I love it," Clarkson said in return.
Brooks then invited Clarkson to try their hand at performing the song together (2:15):
This is not the first time Clarkson has praised and covered Lady Gaga. Throughout the past decade, Clarkson has been known to sing various Gaga songs at her concerts such as "You and I," "Bad Romance," and now most recently "Shallow."
