Watch out, Ellen DeGeneres! Kelly Clarkson is throwing her hat into the daytime talk show host ring, and from the looks of the trailer for her new show, she’s got a few extra tricks up her sleeve to outshine the competition.
In the first trailer for The Kelly Clarkson Show — which leaked online on Wednesday, January 23, and has since been taken down — the “Stronger” singer, 36, shows off her vocal talents for her audience as she kicks off her show with a cover of Cardi B’s “I Like It.”
The three-minute, 14-second clip also finds the Grammy nominee performing all the expected talk show duties, including interviewing celebrity guests such as Chrissy Metz, Terry Crews, Chloë Grace Moretz and Josh Groban, in addition to investigating real world issues, such as L.A.’s homeless population.
“One of the reasons why I was so excited to have this show, y’all, is that I’d have the opportunity to shine a light on some organizations and people that get overlooked all the time,” she says in the trailer.
The American Idol alum is also interested in stories from everyday people. “I’d love to see all kinds of guests on the show,” Clarkson says. “All different kinds of walks of life, backgrounds, celebrities [and] non-celebrities.”
“I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” the show host said in a statement at the time. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
“The appeal of Kelly is that she’s an open book,” the source explained. “Who she is on TV is who she is off screen.”
The Kelly Clarkson Show will debut on NBC in fall 2019.
