Kelly Clarkson Live: Watch Her ‘Ellen’ Performance [Video]

The original “American Idol” winner will return to perform on next Thursday’s results show

Kelly Clarkson's performance of a medley of her songs on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" highlighted a memorable week on television, and we have the video to prove it.

Clarkson, who will also perform on "American Idol" next Thursday night (along with Rihanna), tore through her hits "Miss Independent," "Walk Away" and "Since U Been Gone" on a stage in Florida. The large crowd on hand — and that includes Ellen, who was broadcasting live from Universal Orlando — ate the trio of songs up as if they were the delicious contents of a Whitman's Sampler.

Clarkson was the very first winner of "American Idol" back in 2002. Her fifth studio album is set to be released in September.
