Kelly Clarkson sings emotional cover of I Can't Make You Love Me during 'difficult' divorce from Brandon Blackstock

KELLY Clarkson sang an emotional cover of I Can't Make You Love Me during her "difficult" divorce from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

The entertainer performed the song made famous by Bonnie Raitt during the October 9th episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show.

The hitmaker wore a black dress imprinted with green and yellow hearts along with an eyepatch as she continues to recover from an eye infection.

Bonnie recorded and released the song for her 1991 album Luck Of The Draw where it became a huge hit.

People were loving the cover as they took to the comments section to react.

One wrote: "Who can stop your tears from rolling down?! I can't!

"The power of emotions in your voice ohhh GOD!!! You make me cry again Kelly."

Another chimed in with: "OMG, her emotion is gut-wrenching. No one compares."

The performance comes as the hitmaker deals with her split after filing for divorce from Brandon in June, citing “irreconcilable differences."

She also requested joint custody of their two children, daughter River Rose, six, and son, Remington, four.

Brandon, 43, also has two kids from a previous marriage.

Even though Kelly, 38, was busy performing a cover, she is also working on another album which she recently said will be a "personal" one.

She told Willie Geist on Sunday TODAY: "This'll probably be the most personal one I've ever released.

"And the whole record is basically every emotion you experience from the beginning of a relationship to the end of what it is now or where it is now, and it's been very therapeutic for me."

She also revealed just how she's been doing after the breakup: "I mean, it's no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster … personally, it's been a little hard the last couple months.

"I've been talking to friends that have been through divorce. I don't know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved."

On top of the divorce, the musician has also been confronted with a lawsuit as Brandon's father's company is suing her for $1.4 million in unpaid commissions.

The American Idol alum has also been dealing with anxiety through this all.

She said on her talk show: "I literally don't know how anyone goes through anything horrible or big in their life without having an outlet, like I have with writing.

"I was talking to Gwen [Stefani] the other day on The Voice. We're both writing for our next albums and it's like, even if no one hears it, it's so therapeutic and it's so good for you. That's your outlet."
