When one talkshow host meets another.
On Monday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, new talkshow host Kelly Clarkson stops by to talk business as she is the lead into DeGeneres’ show.
Clarkson reveals that recording an album, being mother to two kids and being a judge on “The Voice” was more than enough for her so when the offer to host her own show came through, she turned it down.
It wasn’t until her husband and manager Brandon Blackstock convinced her otherwise. “You got to matter until you don’t people,” she joked.
But ultimately it came down to him making her realize all the good she could do with her show by bringing people from different walks of life together.
The “American Idol” alum also spoke about how an audience member will pick a song for her to sing and she has to quickly learn the cover admitting some have gone great (Jonas Brothers) and others not (Eminem).
Of course, Clarkson wasn’t going to get off easy, DeGeneres put her to the test in “Hot Hands” to see how many celebs that she could recognize and what she would ask them.
She knew most of the celebs but got stuck on the Duchess of Sussex. “Meghan Markle” DeGeneres whispered to which Clarkson pointed out that “she doesn’t look like a Meghan” and said she would ask her why that is.
Random fact- Meghan’s real name is Rachel Meghan Markle but went by her middle name when she started acting. So now you know.
