Kelly Clarkson Reminds Us Why She Won ‘American Idol’ on Her New Talk Show
The Kelly Clarkson Show premiered this week to critical acclaim and strong ratings! And if you haven’t watched yet, it is an hour of fun of laughter with The Voice coach and original American Idol winner. Plus, as expected, there is plenty of singing!
Let’s take a look at the first week of The Kelly Clarkson Show, all the talent show ties, and how she reminded us why she won American Idol all those years ago.
Kelly Clarkson Singing “Kellyoke”
In case you needed a reminder why Kelly Clarkson is THE American Idol, she gave us just that this week. Her “Kellyoke” segment has her cover a new song each day on the show. It started in epic fashion with Kelly singing Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5.” She kicks it off with a fun montage then moves into the audience to finish the song. Oh and did we mention Steve Carrell announced her entrance? The whole thing is reminiscent of the Ellen show and just so fun. You can’t help but dance and sing along! What a way to start a show.
Throughout the week, she continued these “Kellyoke” covers. Kelly sang “Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers, “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga, “Think” by Aretha Franklin, and “Chandelier” by Sia. And every single one was epic and pitch perfect. Seriously, how does she do it?! She has proven time and time again why she won the competition.
Upcoming American Idol Reunion
Speaking of her big win, this week it was announced that Kelly will be hosting an American Idol reunion of sorts on her show on Wednesday, September 18th. Original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson will be guests along with host Ryan Seacrest and her runner-up, Justin Guarini.
John Legend on The Kelly Clarkson Show
Fellow Voice coach John Legend also stopped by to talk to Kelly. They talked about John’s family and their crazy travel schedule, including visiting Thailand where some of Chrissy’s relatives are from. John also brags about being a #GoodInstagramHusband and how he and Chrissy met at his music video shoot.
You can tell Kelly and John have a great dynamic between each other though. This gets me so excited for the next season of The Voice! In another clip, they review John’s wine collection. I love seeing the two of them together! And if you want to see the big red chair in action before the new season, Kelly did an awesome blind dating segment with The Voice chair.
Kelly Visits the ‘AGT’ Set
In one of my favorite segments of the week, Kelly Clarkson went around the Universal lot where her show tapes to give out Bundt cakes. She is the “new neighbor” after all! After surprising some random people, Kelly visits Howie Mandel and Terry Crews on the America’s Got Talent set. Their dressing room is decked out with Kelly Clarkson photos all over the walls! She also stops by to see Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union. There’s a whole lotta talent show love going on here!
And there will be more where that came from! In addition to the American Idol reunion happening next week, Kelly will also welcome former Voice coach Christina Aguilera to her show! The Kelly Clarkson Show airs weekdays across the nation. Check your local listings.
