Kelly Clarkson is back with yet another incredible “Kellyoke” performance.

Kicking off yesterday's episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the American Idol winner performed a moving cover of the Righteous Brothers' hit ballad 'Unchained Melody.'

The 38-year-old singer stayed faithful to the hit song and nailed all those high notes as per usual.

• Kelly Clarkson and John Legend wow with live performance of 'Baby It's Cold Outside'
• Kelly Clarkson performs stunning cover of Olivia Newton-John's 'Hopelessly Devoted to You'

The song - which was written by Alex North and Hy Zaret in 1955 - has been recorded by Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Barry Manilow, Cyndi Lauper, U2 and dozens of other iconic acts.

But the Righteous Brothers' take on it, produced by the late Phil Spector, endures as the standout recording, thanks largely to its resurgence in popularity after serving as the soundtrack for the memorable pottery scene in the 1990 blockbuster Ghost.
