Kelly Clarkson kicked off her new show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, with plenty of laughs, some big celebrity guests and a sweet surprise!
Before an incredible performance of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5,” Steve Carell walked on stage to introduce Clarkson in the most epic way: mimicking the infamous moment he screamed her name in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
Kicking off the show, Clarkson told her audience, “I love meeting people, I love connecting with people, in case you haven’t noticed. … I actually got in trouble for it in school all the time, but now I’m getting paid for it.”
Her first guest, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, came on stage and handed Clarkson a single sunflower. Clarkson then praised Johnson for being there — though it wasn’t planned.
