Moms (and parents) of America, Kelly Clarkson has your back!
With her latest "Kellyoke" performance, Clarkson went full retro with the anthemic, fist-pumping power of Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," and she had a very specific target audience in mind:
"The perfect anthem for moms who survived parenting in lockdown!" her talk show's Twitter account wrote Tuesday, adding the hashtag #KeepCalmandMomOn. We love that idea of "Keep Calm and Mom On"!

The tune was in full 1980s mode (the song was originally released in 1987 and was a No. 1 hit for the band). Clarkson wore a full-length print dress and breathed a whole new, gutsy life into the shortened version of the tune.
As for that "Keep Calm and Mom On" sentiment, she turned that into the show's theme for the day:
"Keep Calm and Mom On!" a separate tweet read. "Today's show is dedicated to the strong mamas holding it down at home over the past year and a half!"
This was far from the first time she'd dipped back into the 1980s for musical inspiration, though. If you're a fan, be sure to check Clarkson's take on Erasure's "A Little Respect," Madonna's "Borderline" and Soft Cell's "Tainted Love"!
