In a knock-down, drag-out, musical battle royale between Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, who would win?

The answer, obviously, is Kelly Clarkson.

Okay, so maybe Kelly’s wedding reception-ready single “Tie It Up” isn’t going to generate sales as huge as “Roar” or “Applause.” But all the same, the song is bouncy, twangy, and earwormy enough to guarantee a place of honor at plenty of upcoming marriage celebrations. And its cute new video, which splices footage of wedding singer Kelly — flashing her own gorgeous engagement ring — with clips of normal people’s nuptials, is pure feel-good fun. (Yes, a few gay couples get featured; yes, in a perfect world, this wouldn’t be unusual enough to earn a special mention.)

One complaint: Despite the song’s name, Clarkson never appears in that skirt made of ties that she rocked in From Justin to Kelly. Major missed opportunity, girl.
