Wanna know the secret to Kelly Clarkson's sensational LIVE performance of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" at the Presidential Inauguration? Two words ... STUFFED MUSHROOMS.

That's right, the night before Kelly rocked the National Mall in front of more than 800,000 people ... she and a few friends carbo-loaded at Buca di Beppo in D.C. -- and as everyone knows by now, it clearly paid off.

We're told Kelly and co. feasted on lasagna, bruschetta, stuffed mushrooms, half-pound meatballs, spaghetti, chicken parmigiana -- and the always delicious colossal brownie sundae ...all for a cool $230.

Our sources say Kelly was super friendly, took time to snap pics with the staff (above) -- and left in extremely good spirits.

And then she did this ...

I like Kelly Clarkson and think her talent is underrated. I also give her props for her live performance but I thought it was disappointing the way she pretty much yelled her way through the song. Wrong octave or something, but that was just not her song. I still like her, though.

I finally got good audio on this performance but I can't believe TMZ (and everyone else) is attempting to make this story a big story. Kelly's vocals were good , shes always been a great singer, but from people's chatter online, I thought the vocals were going to be phenomenal. This was overhyped. Thanks a lot.

She's engaged to Reba McEntire's stepson, A love story almost as sweet as Ryan Secrest and Juliane Hough.

Kelly was awesome. She didn't have to lip sync her song like Beyonce! I really don't care what she ate. She showed class to perform live!
