Kelly Clarkson spent the summer on tour, covering singles from artists such as Eminem and Adele.

But the singer took to the stage last night at the American Music Awards and turned the focus back on herself, performing an impressive array of tracks from her upcoming Greatest Hits album.

Standing in front of a makeshift American Idol panel, Clarkson kicked things off with "Miss Independent" and then launched into four minutes worth of fun.

Sit back and enjoy it all now:

Give us Kelly Clarkson standing at a microphone, simply singing, and we'd be thrilled. The original American Idol possesses that kind of sheer talent.

But the artist took to the stage at last night's American Music Awards in a shiny, beautiful dress and was flanked by a series of brass instruments, along with back-up dancers that took their cue from the early 20th century musical Newsies.

It was a fun, jazzy rendition of "Mr. Know It All" that still showcased Clarkson's incredible voice. Watch for yourself now:

Other performers at the event includes Justin Bieber (HERE) and Jennifer Lopez (HERE).
