In best news ever: Kelly Clarkson is getting a daytime talk show
Kelly Clarkson has been one of our favorite artists since she first graced our TV screens on American Idol way back in 2002. And in the best news of the day, Clarkson has announced she’s getting her very own daytime talk show.
So. Much. Yes.
She stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on September 18th and nonchalantly dropped the news, saying the show is slated to air on NBC in the fall of 2019, ahead of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (this is in addition to touring in January and judging The Voice).
“This is a big announcement because this has not been announced yet,” Fallon replied.
“Well, it’s been leaked!” Clarkson said, before adding, “I know, I’m very excited.”
She continued, "I didn't think I'd ever do it. But we shot the pilot. I love talking; it's like my favorite pastime. It's hard for me to shut up, though. You have to listen to people who come on your show, and I just keep talking. That's the only thing I've got to work on: listening."
She also revealed her show will (naturally) have some musical elements.
"We sing every day on the show and do this fan request thing," she said. "It's fun. In the pilot, I got people to sing with me and do little skits. It's very musical; it would be weird if it wasn't."

We think Clarkson will make a fabulous addition to the daytime talk show lineup, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store. Congratulations, girl! We’ll be patiently counting down the days until the premiere.
