Kelly Clarkson took to social media to assure her loyal fans that her performance at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was a hundred percent live! This comes after Rita Ora was slammed for lip synching and defended herself by claiming that everyone at the parade also did.
‘Umm, I don’t know if y’all know this, but that was live! Brynn Cartelli, thank you—singing in this cold weather with me. I just wanted y’all to know, you probably all thought that sounded so good from Brynn Cartelli, but that was live, as well. So Brynn Cartelli’s just rocking those runs this morning,’ Clarkson wrote.

She went on to wish her followers a very happy Thanksgiving.
Even though it was below 20 degrees in New York, the singer did not let the very cold weather drag her down or ruin her great mood.
In fact, one could say she brought the ‘Heat’ by performing her song!
Soon enough, social media users started praising the artist for not lip synching.
‘No one else is singing live for the Macy’s parade except Kelly Clarkson, actual queen. / Sounds like she insisted to sing live instead of usual lip-syncing at #MacysDayParade. Sounds awesome of course @kellyclarkson,’ two impressed fans wrote online.
This is the exact opposite of what happened to Rita Ora, who was called out for lip-synching.
The singer defended herself by replying to a hater who criticized her, explaining that everyone at the parade lip-synched.
Even John Legend showed her support, but it turns out that not everyone lip-synched after all!
To be fair, the parade experienced some technical difficulties that negatively impacted the performances, but still, Rita was singled out.
Regardless, Kelly Clarkson deserves some props for performing live.
