Falsetto on Unchained Melody. When she went "Oh I Need Your Love..." she hit A5.

The only other song she used falsetto was on Bewitched, Bothered, & Bewildered, in which she hit D#5/Eb5.


I remember UM. I loved that performance!

Oh, and I found some more, so excluding seasons 2-4, here are the standings per season
Season 1
- Highest Note Hit with Falsetto/Head voice
Kelly Clarkson : F#6/Gb6
- Highest Note Hit without Falsetto/Head voice
Kelly Clarkson : G5

Season 5
- Highest Note Hit with Falsetto/Head voice
Kellie Pickler and Mandisa Hundley : A5
- Highest Note Hit without Falsetto/Head voice
Mandisa Hundley : A5

Season 6
- Highest Note Hit with Falsetto/Head voice
Jordin Sparks : G#5/Ab5
- Highest Note Hit without Falsetto/Head voice
Jordin Sparks : F#5/Gb5

Season 7
- Highest Note Hit with Falsetto/Head voice
Syesha Mercado : D#6/Eb6
- Highest Note Hit without Falsetto/Head voice
Syesha Mercado : A5

I can't find more. But seasons 2-4 have some promising vocalists like Vonzell, Fantasia, etc. who've hit some good notes in their prime.


I wonder what song it was that Kelly hit the highest note w/out falsetto was

She does have great technique. Her blend of chest/head voice is awesome.

For season 2's highest notes ever hit, I'm nominating all of Corey Clark's performances. I think that has got to be a record for the highest notes ever hit by a male. And for season 5, you might want to take a listen to Sway Penala's performance of Reasons, and a few of Ace's performances as well

Yeah, the highest note was that pitchy F#6 that Kelly busted out in "Natural Woman"...in false voice. Her highest in full voice (mixed chest/head) is A5. Sounded pretty forced, though.

Carrie never went this high on the show, but her highest in full voice (pure chest) is F#5/G5. But because she lacks training and uses and overwhelming amount of chest resonation to hit that note, I'm assuming that she could easily go higher with correct placement and support.

BTW, virtually anyone can reach high falsetto notes in the 6th octave...it's not hitting them that makes them impressive (People can "hit" them just by screaming...Carrie's done it, Jessica Simpson's done it, Katy Perry's done it, GUYS ON THIS SITE HAVE DONE IT!) it's being able to sing in and control them, a la Mariah and Minnie.

Jordin's highest in full voice (mixed chest/head) is G#5.

Carly's I believe is G5 in full voice (mixed chest/head)

Vonzell's was F#5/G5 in a head-dominant mixture.

Jennifer Hudson's is B5 (chest/head mix)!!!!

So, the highest CONNECTED note goes to Jennifer Hudson. Falsetto doesn't count.

Indeed, Underwood's tremendous belting sustained high notes that would make even more seasoned female vocalists blush soar out of her effortlessly reminds of no one so much as Ann Wilson, who surely would have stood in gape-mouthed awe at the robust wailing Underwood brought to Guns N' Roses "Paradise City" here. (That cover will kill when she helps close Stagecoach in May. Only in his dreams does Axl Rose sing it so well these days.)

Kelly's F#6 wasn't pitchy, it wasn't meant to be a solid note. She meant to scoop up to it like that. Listen to her studio version of Natural Woman, where she sings it in full voice instead of in her whistle range. She scoops up to it there too.
Also, Kelly has hit A5s multiple times, not sounding forced at all. Notice how when she hits it on Nickelodeon U-Pick live, her facial expression barely changes from what you can see. She has hit A5s in concert a few times as well, and she even hit a B5 in full voice once, although it wasn't great. Jennifer's was much better, but Kelly still hit it.
