Kelly Clarkson is desperate to silence critics accusing her of "ripping off" Beyonce’s hit Halo - she is reworking the offending song on her live tour.
The Since U Been Gone hitmaker claimed songwriter/producer Ryan Tedder sent her the track that became Halo without telling her he'd already offered it to Beyonce.
Clarkson later came under fire after Sony Music bosses released her version, Already Gone, as a single - despite her desperate pleas to shelve it.
