Kelly Clarkson has sparked a strong response from social media users, after debuting a cover of "Chain of Fools" amid her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. The clip is part of the "Kellyoke" portion of The Kelly Clarkson Show, in which the hit singer and TV host delivers her own rendition of classic and popular tunes.
On Tuesday's episode, Clarkson performed the 1967 Aretha Franklin song, which features lines like, "For five long years I thought you were my man, but I found out I'm just a link in your chain." The song goes on to say, "You got me where you want me / I ain't nothin' but your fool / Ya treated me mean / Oh, you treated me cruel." Many are wondering if this particular song choice has anything to do with Clarkson's divorce, and are sharing their thoughts on Twitter. Scroll down to read what fans have to say about the clip.

Her voice is amazing. I’m sorry to hear that she’s going through this break up right now. That’s tough on anyone, especially someone with small children.— Mary Stringfield (@BananaBanana151) June 16, 2020

@kellyclarkson saw you singing chain of fools. You are nobody’s fool, he is.— Jackie Hickey (@tazmama123) June 16, 2020
Always thought Kelly Clarkson would make a great Blues singer. Not many white people can do justice to old-school Blues, but like Bonnie Raitt, Kelly could be one of them. Kelly, give it a try!https://t.co/o3sOSXy8gt

I wasn't too sure when I came across this but, while she's no Aretha, she actually does a great job, and I'm not a KC fan.
I might have to get a copy to go with Aretha's.
