The singer Since U Been Gone beamed as she emerged in front of 60,000 screaming fans to introduce the legendary musician.
Carole and Kelly have collaborated on Where You Lead, a track from 1971's key King's album, Tapestry.
The song, which Kelly defined as his "personal predilection", earned a second life after the singer / songwriter rewrote the text to reflect a mother-daughter relationship and interpreted it as a duet with her daughter Louise Goffin.
The revised piece gained a new success as a musical theme for Gilmore Girls, and it was that version that Kelly and Carole sang together.

Guests recalled the 2002 singing competition, while Simon seemed concerned about the possibility of working again with Paul and Randy.
