Kelly’s performance was pretty well a stripped-down version. She sang the song beautifully and elegantly, hitting every note in perfect harmony in front of a sparkling red backdrop.

Dolly gave her seal of approval and also said that another artist who famously covered the song, the late Whitney Houston would be “proud” of Kelly’s take on the track. “I know Whitney is shining down on us tonight,” Dolly said, before announcing the Entertainer of the Year winner.
