John Legend & Kelly Clarkson’s Modernized ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Duet Has ‘The Voice’ Fans Divided

Recording artist John Legend (L) and host Kelly Clarkson speak onstage during the 2018 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 20, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Last year, Frank Loesser’s 1944 hit holiday classic tune, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” became the subject of controversy among the “Me Too” movement. To combat the original tune’s alleged date-rape undertones, John Legend recorded a modernized version with the help of Kelly Clarkson, which was released last month, and the two performed the song on Tuesday evening’s episode of The Voice. Fans of the singing competition were divided over the updated hit, according to Decider.

During Tuesday evening’s Top 10 results episode, Legend took to a piano on-stage wearing a festive green and red plaid suit, while Clarkson took a seat on a red couch in a sequined blue dress. The melody of Legend’s tune remained the same, as well as the female role’s original lyrics, but a few of the male role’s lyrics were altered to change the overall story.
