On the Wednesday (Feb. 8) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the American Idol alum tapped into her rock roots to give Whitesnake‘s 1987 Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “Here I Go Again” a spin for her opening Kellyoke segment.

Wearing a black floral gown, black cardigan and thin velvet choker and accompanied by her band Y’all, the powerhouse vocalist put her spin on the track, belted the song’s lyrics and added vibrato at the most appropriate parts.

Backed by her band, the powerhouse singer belted out the English rock group’s single, which topped the Billboard Hot 100, for Kellyoke’s opening segment.

“Though I keep searching for an answer/ I never seem to find what I’m looking for/ Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on/ ‘Cause I know what it means/ To walk along the lonely street of dreams,” Clarkson belted.

David Coverdale originally recorded “Here I Go Again” for Whitesnake’s album, Saints and Sinners in 1982.

Five years later, he cut a poppier version of it for Whitesnake’s self-titled album, and made the decision to feature his then-girlfriend Tawny Kitaen

Earlier this week, Clarkson was joined by Pink for a segment of “Songs and Stories,” where the two musicians paired up to sing some of Pink’s biggest hits

“Here I Go Again” was released as the third single from Whitesnake’s self-titled seventh studio album.
