Kelly Clarkson is getting her own daytime talk show

Death, taxes, and Kelly Clarkson’s face on your TV seem to be the only three certainties in life.

Death, taxes, and Kelly Clarkson’s face on your TV seem to be the only three certainties in life. The singer appears to be in talks with NBC Universal – for whom she already calls home by way of her chair spot on The Voice ­– to join the ranks of Doctors both Phil and Oz as the host of an upcoming syndicated daytime talk-show.

Though details are currently scant in advance of the show’s proposed Fall 2019 debut, her new role as a talk show host is merely the latest hat for Clarkson to wear in a storied career that includes award show MC stints, eight Billboard-topping albums, Grammy noms, and even a short-lived, Razzie-nominated stint as an actress.

Clarkson may be used to coming out on top against stiff competition, grabbing onto our hearts back in 2002 as the first-ever American Idol winner and never letting go, but it appears another showdown may be on the horizon for her, with RuPaul also set to throw his glammed-out gauntlet into the daytime talkshow ring. We’re currently dreading 2019, when we’ll have to face the real Sophie’s Choice of watching either Since U Been Talk or RuPaul’s Gab Race when home sick from work.
