Kelly Clarkson Shuts Down Troll Trashing Dissing Indy 500 Singer

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson and Chevel Shepherd, who won season 15 of The Voice, both performed at the 2019 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

Shepherd delivered a rendition of “God Bless America” while Clarkson belted out the National Anthem.

Clarkson, who coached Shepherd to victory on Season 15 of The Voice, soon stepped in to defend the teen singer. The American Idol winner responded to a viewer who incorrectly billed Clarkson as singing the song, defending Shepherd in the process.

Several viewers felt it necessary to take to social media to express their dislike. One described the song as the “Absolute WORST version of God Bless America I’ve ever heard,” which they tweeted at Clarkson.

“I didn’t actually sing that song today but the 16 yr old girl that did, nailed it,” the former American Idol winner, 37, clapped back. “Also, think about the fact that U signed in online & took the time 2 drag a 16 yr old girl.”

“Really think about it because Ur showing the worst side of U & I have faith that you’re cooler than this,” she added. The tweet garnered more than 21,000 people “liking” Kelly’s response.
