When it comes to singers, most would agree that first-time American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson ranks among the best. But Clarkson’s status as a bona fide vocal diva doesn’t stop her from geeking out over some of her equally talented contemporaries. During an interview with Jenny McCarthy on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109), Clarkson dished about why she thinks Beyoncé was “badass” after lipsyncing at President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

“When they said that Beyonce lipsynced at the inauguration, I was like, ‘No way!’,” Clarkson said. “And then I was like, ‘Hold on. Why are we bashing this? That is actually incredibly talented.’”

During a conversation about Kelly’s new music and her vocal prowess, McCarthy asked the mother of two if she’s ever had to lipsync due to illness. While Clarkson said lipsyncing isn’t something that she does, her reasoning might surprise you. Take a look below.
