She's done it again!

Kicking off Friday's episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the American Idol winner paid tribute to Phil Collins ahead of his 70th birthday with a powerful cover of his hit ballad 'I Wish It Would Rain Down.'

Surrounded by simulated raindrops, the 38-year-old singer stayed faithful to the 1989 song and nailed all those high notes as per usual.
