The first season American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson was in Manila Philippine for a one night show at Araneta Coliseum. She arrived last Friday (April 30,2010) fresh from her show at Jakarta, Indonesia. Since winning the American Idol in 2002 Kelly Clarkson never been to the Philippines for a show until last May 01, 2010 for her "All I Ever Wanted Word Tour" at the Big Dome.

The show was opened by our very own Miguel Escueta a few minutes past 8 P.M.. He performed 4 songs from his album "I Am M.E.). After a few minutes around 9pm Kelly Clarkson hits the Manila stage with her full band and a DJ. Her first song was "All I Ever Wanted" followed by Miss Independent and more hits after from all her studio albums that really amaze the Filipino audience. On this concert she also covered some song from Kings of Leon "Use Somebody" to"Can't You Out Of My Head" by Kylie Minogue. She also did some cover song from The White Stripes, The Black Keys and Allanis Morissette. Ms. Clarkson also had an acoustic set that shows how great her voice and range is. This proves and shows why she is the orginal Americn Idol winner. This acoustic set features songs like "Gone" "Addicted" "Low" and Just Missed The Train".

Kelly Clarkson interacts well with crowd last night. She even thanks a fan for a cake that she send for her bday that is a few days before coming to Manila. She told the audience how the cake she got reminds her of her hometown city Texas, USA.

She ended the show with an encore of songs of "Already Gone", Seven Army Nation" and "My Life Would Suck Without You" and on this last song Vernon Go propose a wedding to her girlfriend Happee Sy with a short presentation at big screens at the side of the stage that cuts live screening of the concert on the side. Kelly Clarkson even asked Happee Sy if she answer "Yes" to the proposal.

Ms. Clarkson will be heading to Seoul, Korea after her show here in Manila to continue her world tour. It was a great night all in all and we bet that all the people who watch the concert of Kelly Clarkson will still have a hangover and a (LSS) last song syndrom from the show.

P.S. Many of people thought that this concert is over priced but take a look of the other side of it was all worth it, every single pesos that fans paid. Its not everynight you get a Kelly Clarkson perform infront of you.

We will post some photos here soon from the concert. Also you can send some photos you took from the concert and we will choose some of the best pictures and be featured on our site.
