Kelly Clarkson has her own talk show premiering on September 9 and joked that she only got the job because they ran out of people to fill the slot, per Music News.
“I have a show! They ran out of everyone else to ask, but it’s fine… I hope I don’t suck!” she said jokingly when showing her fans around the studio on an Instagram live.
When showing fans around the set, she pointed at the neon purple sign of the talk show name, The Kelly Clarkson Show, which she thought was exciting.
“We’re about to come out on my stage, it’s gonna be so fun! Oh my god, I’m excited!” the “Never Again” songstress expressed.
“No one asked me to do this, I’m just excited… look how cool it is!” she continued.
According to Entertainment Tonight, they will film three episodes per week in front of a 200 capacity crowd. Each episode will kick off with Kelly singing a song chosen by the audience members.
“I’m, like, really excited about it, but I’m slightly terrified that people have that much confidence in me,” the “My Life Would Suck Without You” chart-topper admitted.
“I’m like, ‘God, I hope I don’t let people down! But no, I’m pretty stoked about it…. It’s going to be fun and also it’s very serious.”
Clarkson is no stranger to the world of TV. In 2002, she won the first season of American Idol and hasn’t looked back since.
