Kelly Clarkson wholeheartedly performed a song that expresses regret for mistakenly trusting a boy who's “never gonna be a man.” Clarkson, accompanied by music director Jason Halbert, covered “Peter Pan,” which award-winning country artist Kelsea Ballerini released in 2015 on her 12-track album, The First Time. Clarkson sang:

“You're just a lost boy, with your head up in the clouds/ You're just a lost boy, never keep your feet on the ground/ Always gonna fly away, just because you know you can/ You're never gonna learn there's no such place as a Neverland/ You don't understand/ You'll never grow up/ You're never gonna be a man/ Peter Pan”

Clarkson performed the song during the “Kellyoke” segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show on Wednesday (May 11). It marks the most recent time Clarkson has covered one of Ballerini’s songs, after sharing her rendition of “half of my hometown” last month, a song Ballerini said is “the most emotional, grounding, and full circle video I’ve gotten to make.” The iconic American Idol alum and talkshow host as also covered legendary country artists like Brooks & Dunn, Dolly Parton, Randy Travis and more.
