The singer, 41, shared a video on Instagram Saturday of herself surprising a woman singing on the sidewalk in Las Vegas, as she joined in for an impromptu performance.

The Kelly Clarkson Show host was in town ahead of her appearance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival that same day.

“I was on my way to soundcheck for @iHeartRadio tonight in Vegas and was tipping this incredible woman killing some Tina Turner,” Clarkson explained in her caption. “And then she asked me to sing and had no clue who I was.”

“And then it hit her, and it made my day!” she continued. “She gives the best hugs and sings her tail off! See ya tonight Vegas ❤️ #iHeartFestival2023.”

In the clip, the American Idol winner sang Tina Turner’s hit song “What’s Love Got to Do With It" while the woman danced and clapped beside her.

As the video progressed, the woman then stopped at one point and pointed at Clarkson, as she realized who was singing.

She let out a scream and threw her arms up to hug Clarkson as a gathering crowd cheered.
