Kelly Clarkson sings she's been a 'bad, bad girl' in sexy cover of Fiona Apple's tune Criminal after divorce

KELLY Clarkson sang she's been a "bad, bad girl" in a sexy cover of Fiona Apple's tune Criminal.

The performance follows her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

During Monday's episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the 38-year-old host showed off her impressive vocal range while singing the 1996 song.

She emotionally belted out the lyrics: "Don’t you tell me to deny it.

"I've done wrong and I wanna suffer for my sins.

"I've come to you 'cause I need guidance to be true.

"And I just don't know where I can begin."

She continued to sing about the "need to be redeemed to the one I've sinned against because he's all I ever knew of love."

Kelly has made a habit of performing emotional break up songs since announcing her split from Brandon.

The Voice judge recently sang an emotional cover of I Can't Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt as she continues to deal with the split.

The couple tied the knot in 2018 before calling it quits in June.

Kelly filed for divorce and cited “irreconcilable differences," while she also requested joint custody of their two children, daughter River Rose, six, and son, Remington, four.

Kelly has touched on her split publicly a few times and told Willie Geist on Sunday TODAY: "I mean, it's no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster … personally, it's been a little hard the last couple months.

"I've been talking to friends that have been through divorce. I don't know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved."

She told Hoda Kotb in an additional interview: "You can ask anyone that's gone through divorce, I don't think anyone expects it.

"You see yourself growing old with someone and then life has a different path, and it's so hard on everyone.

“You know me, I'm really open… I try to be open and share because we all go through things so we can help each other not feel alone.”

While talking to Jamie Lee Curtis on Monday's episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the host admitted her life has "changed very much" since calling off her marriage.

She also spoke about her struggles with anxiety in another episode.

Kelly attributed songwriting as they way she deals with her anxiety, explaining: "I literally don't know how anyone goes through anything horrible or big in their life without having an outlet, like I have with writing.

"I was talking to Gwen [Stefani] the other day on The Voice. We're both writing for our next albums and it's like, even if no one hears it, it's so therapeutic and it's so good for you. That's your outlet."
