Kelly Clarkson’s daytime talk show has put her in the place of a talk show queen. While everyone in America loves her earnest humor, performances, and genuine conversations with guests on The Kelly Clarkson Show, she’s the last one to watch it on tv.

Clarkson admits that despite the success of her talk show, she “hates” watching herself on the small screen. The singer was at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards blue carpet when she opened up to Entertainment Tonight about the matter. “I can’t watch it because I hate watching me, but people seem to like it,” she said.

“I saw the very first episode and then I was like, ‘Out,’ because it’s weird watching yourself.”

The singer’s description of how the show is being received among television audiences is an understatement. The Kelly Clarkson Show has become a massive hit and the Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards can attest to it giving the show a nomination for Best Talk Show. It went head to head against Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Desus & Mero, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, and Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Late-night stars Corden and Meyers ended up taking home the title in a tie. But Clarkson keeps winning as her show has been renewed for season 2.

“I love being a part of a team that puts this show together, it’s just a positive thing,” she said about the big news. The Kelly Clarkson show features song covers from the singer and celebrity guests.
