Kelly Clarkson fans certainly “Get Lucky” with her Kellyoke covers, and Wednesday’s (May 19) song choice was a Daft Punk classic, featuring Pharrell and Nile Rodgers.
Clarkson stepped out in a Beetlejuice-esque black-and-white stripped dress while streaks of technicolor light dazzled all around her and the stage. She kicked the former Voice coach’s vocals a notch higher when she sang the chorus, “She’s up all night ’til the sun/ I’m up all night to get some/ She’s up all night for good fun/ I’m up all night to get lucky.”
“Get Lucky” was the lead single from Daft Punk’s fourth and final studio album, Random Access Memories in 2013. The song peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and hit No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Dance Club Songs and Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. “Get Lucky” earned a Grammy Award for record of the year and best pop duo/group performance in 2014, where Daft Punk, Pharrell, Rodgers and Stevie Wonder performed it onstage.
Her Daft Punk cover comes nearly three months to the date when the enigmatic French EDM duo announced their split after 28 years. Daft Punk later had major spikes on Billboard‘s dance/electronic charts (dated March 6), with “Get Lucky” jumping to No. 6 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs tally.
