Kelly Clarkson Presents New Promo of Her Talk-Show with Cover of Dolly Parton's '9 to 5' Classic
Singing sensation Kelly Clarkson covered "9 to 5" by country superstar Dolly Patron to mark the approach of her show "The Kelly Clarkson Show."
Kelly Clarkson, the American Idol winner, covered Dolly Patron to help her get ready for her first day at work.
In the video, Clarkson is promoting her new syndicated talk show named after herself. The Grammy winner recorded Patron's 1980 classic "9 to 5." She sang the tune on a new music video that dropped on Thursday.
KELLY CLARKSON MARKS THE BEGINING WITH A COVER OF "9 TO 5"
Clarkson dropped yet another catchy cover on Friday. This time, the singer channeled her inner Dolly Patron.
Clarkson painted herself as a working woman in the video and donned a series of occupational costumes such as a mechanic, waitress, construction worker, firefighter, and a police officer in that order.
"Kelly Clarkson Goes ‘9 to ‘5 On The Kelly Clarkson Show. Time to start a new '9 to 5' job on Sept. 9!" Kelly wrote on the post.
CLARKSON FEELS LIKE HER SHOW IS AN EXTENSION OF WHO SHE IS
Clarkson's show hits the air on Monday, and it is a perfect fit for the star. She spoke to "People" last month and said, "I feel like this show is an extension of all the things I love about my career."
"I actually enjoy doing interviews. I'm not normal, because none of my friends in the business like it, but I love talking. So, surprise!"
Every episode is going to start with a cover song by Clarkson. Since covers are her forte, the singer should feel right at home. "I've been doing that forever," Clarkson told the publication. "We've made the show an extension of what I already do on tour."
THE AUDIENCE IS THE CO-HOST IN THE SHOW
Clarkson revealed that her audience would be playing the role of the co-hosts in the show. "I play off of them. … Everybody's kind of in the same area," she said.
The singer added that she wanted her audience to be placed closer to the stage to make everyone feel more comfortable and make the room warmer in the process.
While the show is expecting a slew of celebrities, a select group of celebrities will make for a memorable episode. American Idol judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson will be appearing on the show.
CLARKSON PUTS HER FOOT DOWN WHEN IT COMES TO HER FAMILY
The American Idol alum spoke to "People" during the late August's cover story and revealed that she wanted her family to come first. She insisted on having time on her talk show to take her kids to school.
With her recent medical scares on live television followed by surgery, the recovering singer has a lot on her plate but is still going strong.
Clarkson is known around the globe for her talent but considers herself to be just like anyone else. "I'm just normal," she said during her appearance on the cover story. "The thing people say most about me is that I don't act like a celebrity."
She went on to reveal that the most important thing for her right now is to be a 'Mom' for her four kids, whom she shares with husband, Brandon Blackstock.
