You are forgiven for thinking that this was an actual duet between Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson.

The song is “Shallow” from the movie A Star Is Born. A movie where Gaga herself starred in opposite Bradley Cooper. It was written by Gaga with Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson.

The song was produced by Gaga with Benjamin Rice.

The now iconic power ballad is heard three times in the film. The lyrics speak of each character’s outlook and life in each other’s eyes.

Gaga wrote it from her character Ally’s view. Cooper’s character then catches on, trading words and melodies with his co-star giving birth to the duet that’s spawned so many cover versions.

Now everyone knows that Gaga is a vocal giant.

Kelly Clarkson is one of the most versatile singers out there. She’s one to make jaws drop and necks turn once she opens her mouth.

This mash up between two videos of both stars singing the same song just works really well.

Put together by YouTuber Blighght, the blending and harmonies fall wonderfully into place with both female singers delivering an impressive showing of vocal prowess.

Now of course Gaga’s is the original but Kelly, like always, does it so effortlessly.

“For a moment there, I thought that Kelly and Lady Gaga were performing this together simultaneously. Then I realized that you had merged two different performances together. Really nice job! These two can sing!” says a viewer.

Not everyone knows this but Gaga was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.

She’s a huge star, often controversial for her fashion sense and comments. But all that goes away when she sings. For real.

In fact, as quirky and catchy as her hit songs are, it’s in power ballads that Gaga gets to display her unbelievably powerful voice. It’s got an edge to it, almost like Stevie Nicks, while retaining her soft, pop tone.

Kelly Clarkson won the first season of American Idol.

She’s definitely been around the music industry, impressing record execs, fellow artists, and fans all over the world with her stunning range and control.

Gaga’s dark, almost guttural tone at lower notes all the way up to her alto to soprano style certainly works for the song. Kelly is herself a soprano, able to go as high as she want without straining.

If you watch The Kelly Clarkson Show, then you know how she often sings covers of different songs.

It’s unreal to think that those were songs by other artists since Kelly is so good, it actually sounds like her own work.

And her fans know it.

“Kelly is the most versatile singer of all the powerhouse females of her generation…also love how she can go from goofy funny in person,to totally locked in on stage.” says another viewer.
