Grace Kelly è il primo singolo estratto dall’album di Mika Life In Cartoon Motion (2007). Sebbene reso disponibile inizialmente solo per il download, ha raggiunto subito la terza posizione delle classifiche inglesi (e la prima di quelle sul download digitale).
La canzone è stata ispirata in seguito ad un’esperienza in studio di registrazione, quando a Mika veniva chiesto di “essere un pò più Craig David”. Nel testo si legge però “so I tried a little Freddie”, a conferma di chi più volte gli ha paragonato la voce a quella di Freddie Mercury.
Solo nel Regno Unito la canzone ha venduto più di 540 mila copie.
