Clarkson recalled Gaga sending a handwritten letter saying it was an honor to perform in the same show as her years ago when she started out in the industry.

But she prepared to sing the tune written by the ‘nicest human being ever’ she confessed an insecurity about altering the tune.

Clarkson said: ‘So we’re gonna do our version of it because obviously, I don’t have a Bradley Cooper here, so I’m just holding it down. I hope I don’t suck, and if I do, I hope she doesn’t see it!’ 

A fan posted on Twitter that after comparing the two versions: 'I love Kelly's version better'

She revealed she’s hoping it takes home more gongs, ahead of the Oscars next weekend where it’s nominated for Best Original Song.

‘Anyway, I’ve been rooting for her for a while. This song, I just, I love it. It’s from that movie that she’s nominated for a billion awards for and I hope she wins,’ Clarkson continued. ‘I thought she and Bradley Cooper did such an awesome job with this song.’

However Cooper admitted on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday that after watching himself perform in character as Jackson Maine during Gaga’s Enigma gig recently he looked like ‘this idiot from Philadelphia’.

Instead he’ll sing it as himself at the 2019 Academy Awards.
