It's safe to say Kelly Clarkson has earned her title as the queen of covers.

The American Idol winner took it back to the '80s on Tuesday in Saint Paul, Minnesota, giving Prince's "Purple Rain" a soulful spin.

"Everyone knows it," she told the crowd. "It's such a classic that I ask you to love me and not judge me because it's such a great classic song from someone from here."



The singer, 33, has dazzled her audiences with her ever-increasing arsenal of covers, including, 'NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye," Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" and Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball." Earlier this month, Taylor Swift even put her stamp of approval on Clarkson's rendition of "Blank Space."

After the "Since U Been Gone" hitmaker finished Prince's number, she admitted to being nervous the entire time.

"I don't think y'all know – I was really about to pee on myself that whole time," she joked. "I was like, 'Oh God, please don't screw it up too much.' "

No need to worry, Kelly! You did more than fine.
