It doesn’t look like Kelly Clarkson is slowing down any time soon, as she adds one more job to her already loaded resume.
The 37-year-old singer-songwriter, who returned as a coach on season 16 of NBC’s award-winning hit series The Voice earlier this year, is packing her bags and heading to Las Vegas.
Kelly made the exciting announcement on her daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, on Friday.
During the “Kellyoke” segment on her show, she sang some of her own songs as a group of showgirls in feathered head dresses entered the stage with her.
She told the audience that she doesn’t normally like doing her own songs during Kellyoke because it makes her “feel like a tool,” but she said she decided to do it today for a very special reason.
That’s when she dropped some serious news.
Saying that she loves “the gambling, the shows, the all-you-can-eat buffet and crab legs” of Sin City, she announced, “I’ve scored my very own residency in Las Vegas!”
If there was ever a studio audience that I wish I was sitting in, it was the one attending this particular show. Because on top of making the announcement, Kelly also gave two free tickets to every audience member. Their accomodations in Vegas are also included, thanks to Planet Hollywood!
Kelly will be headlining her show, with the bold title Kelly Clarkson: Invincible, at the Zappos Theater inside of Planet Hollywood in Vegas. It’s the same stage that has been graced by other stars such as Shania Twain, Christina Aguilera, and fellow Voice coach Gwen Stefani.
The show is set to debut on April 1st, 2020. As of now, there are already 16 dates booked, running through September 20th.
A press release states that the show will “immerse fans in a one-of-a-kind up-close music experience that rocks through her nearly two-decade long catalog of award-winning smash hits.”
Kelly has already been keeping herself busy stocking a green room with bottled water and booking guests on her new daytime talk show, which first aired on September 9th, 2019. Audiences clearly love her, with roughly 1.9 million viewers per episode.
It will be interesting to see how the pop star balances hosting her talk show with headlining a Vegas residency at the same time.
