Kelly Clarkson went Gaga during a concert in Houston on Friday night.

Lady Gaga, that is!

The singer took her incredible act to her home state of Texas over the weekend and continued to honor fan requests, as she's done so all summer long at stops in Illinois ("Cry Me a River") and Virgina ("No Scrubs").

This time, the evening's cover focused on the music world's most eccentric Twitter user, with Clarkson risking the wrath of 25 million Little Monsters. Did she deserve their admiration or their ire following a version of "You and I?" Decide for yourself now:

Kelly Clarkson is in a happy, committed relationship with Brandon Blackstock.

But the original American Idol and one of the most talented vocalists out there was still able to channel one of the greatest breakup anthems of all-time during a concert stop in Tinley Park, Illinois on Saturday, taking yet another fan request and doing a great honor to Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River."

This is simply the latest cover for Clarkson this summer, who also took on Mariah Carey late last week and has sang her own versions of tracks by such heavyweights as TLC, Gotye and even Eminem over the past few weeks.

Watch, listen and marvel now:

Our love affair with Kelly Clarkson knows no bounds.

As the American Idol champion continues to take fan requests across the nation, we've been chronicling her journey of covers by posting Clarkson's takes on Kings of Leon, Florence + the Machine and many others.

The latest performance took place last night in Canandaigua, New York and involved Kelly honoring one of her idols, Mariah Carey. Who will always be Clarkson's baby? Brandon Blackstock, she hopes.

Kelly Clarkson hit up two more cities during her latest tour this weekend, covering a recent hit song at each stop.

And as the first-ever American Idol has been taking fan requests everywhere she goes, THG has been posting them for readers to enjoy. Because she's simply that awesome.

Most recently, Clarkson traveled back over a decade and treated us to a version of TLC's "No Scrubs." The performance proceeded Kelly traveling back just a few seconds and doing up Carly Rae Jepsen's summer smash.

On Saturday in Mansfield, MA, meanwhile, it was time for some Kings of Leon. Watch Clarkson cover "Cold Desert" in the following video:

It might not get any more awesome than Kelly Clarkson.

The original American Idol is touring the country at the moment, taking fan requests at each stop and then covering classic tracks. She recently knocked Anna Nalick's "Breathe" out of the impressive park and prior to that she went with a Britney Spears single.

But outside of Detroit last night, Clarkson put on her coolest performance yet, donning a grey hoodie and making like Eminem.

Watch her version of "Lose Yourself" now, compare it to when Taylor Swift also covered this rap smash and then decide: Who did it better?

She's the American Idol champion! Again!

Based on new figures that came out on July 4, Kelly Clarkson is responsible for the top-selling single of anyone ever associated with the Fox smash, as Billboard reports "Stronger" has sold 3,510,000 copies.

Take that, Carrie Underwood!

Okay, we actually adore Carrie Underwood, but it's that artist's mark that Clarkson broke. The previous best-selling single had been "Before He Cheats," which moves 3,509,000 copies in 2006.

Overall, Underwood remains in the lead as the most popular Idol ever, however. She has moved 13,205,000 total albums as of yesterday, while Kelly is closing in with 11,664,000.

Which of these talented artists is your favorite?

Kelly Clarkson singing Coldplay? Like Usher singing Foster the People, it's a cover we can't say we saw coming, but one you'll find is memorably good.

On it, she took on the Coldplay and Rihanna hit "Princess of China" in stripped down, acoustic rendition featuring just guitar, mandolin and vocals.

Watch below as she nails both Rihanna's part and Chris Martin's:
