Kelly Clarkson is finally going to be on your television screens every day during her own show The Kelly Clarkson Show!
First-week guests included Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Jay Leno and Ellen DeGeneres. Clarkson will also lean on her American Idol roots later this month, bringing in judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson, original host Ryan Seacrest (but not Brian Dunkleman) and season one runner-up Justin Guarini.
Check out some of the highlights from the week:
The first guest was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who replaced co-star Kevin Hart who was healing from his recent car accident. During the interview Clarkson brought up The Rock’s and Hart’s collaborative movie Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle and its upcoming sequel Jumanji: The Next Level, The Rock’s wedding in Hawaii, and his birthday celebration on set.
Then Clarkson welcomed the one and only, Ellen DeGeneres. As always, Ellen didn’t come empty handed. Ellen brought Clarkson a large picture of herself with a pug, completely surprising her. They sat down to chat about her HUGE surprise for the audience – which ended being a 65 inch TLC Roku TV. It was nothing short of an incredible surprise!
Jennifer Garner and Kelly Clarkson candidly speak about their similar interests and humor. Garner has a variety of chickens, which Clarkson kept begging to have one named after her. They mentioned the first time they met at Hollywood Game Night and they both got ferociously competitive with each other.
Jay Leno, the first television host to interview Kelly Clarkson stopped by for his turn at the interviewee sofa. They discussed the first time they met, his long career in television and his biggest memory of the late John F. Kennedy Jr. Plus, he shares a really funny moment when Prince William and Kate Middleton ended up on his driveway. Watch the preview below!
Chance the Rapper and Jillian Bell joined Kelly Clarkson for a few games including “The Last Chance Game,” where they had to answer questions honestly about the last time they did something. Later, Chance sat down to speak about his relationship with his wife, being a show on Netflix’s new hip-hop talent show Rhythm + Flow, and why he’s still an independent artist.
