We need it now! There have been rumors about a Kelly Clarkson talk show for a while, but it’s finally happening. The first trailer for The Kelly Clarkson Show just leaked online, and we’re pretty much ready to binge watch every single episode. The only problem is that the series isn’t kicking off until fall 2019 — but you can still get your first hint of what it’ll be like. Through glimpses of interviews with stars like Chloë Grace Moretz, Terry Crews, and This Is Us star Chrissy Metz, the singer is showing us just how “100% real she is.”
But she’s not just all about interviewing celebs and giving us the “juicy” gossip she manages to get from them — like Chrissy’s super secret romance. She’ll also be performing, whether that means singing her own songs or covering hit tunes like Cardi B‘s “I Like It” (which, by the way, she totally kills). And she’s counting on all of her past experiences with shows like The Voice and American Idol to help her be a total expert. “I don’t find hosting to be super different from being a coach on The Voice,” she explains. “It’s talking to people and it’s being comfortable in your skin, which I’m super good at. Almost too good at. I should probably not be as comfortable,” she laughs.
She’s also using her platform to make a difference, working with rescue mission organizations. “Kelly Clarkson is 100% real,” says Alex Duda, one of the show’s executive producers. “Real is in her DNA. Connection is part of who she is … She is truly America’s celebrity in a way nobody else is.” And the star herself is ready to break down exactly what her new series is going to be.
“What viewers can expect from The Kelly Clarkson Show is basically me being authentically me,” the “Stronger” singer explains. “I love people, I love connecting with them. I love talking. That’s my favorite part of life.”
