Last week, we wondered: where has Kelly Clarkson been all summer and when is she coming back?
While it seems like the big-voiced, prominent singer has taken some time off to regroup, recalibrate, and enjoy life on her Montana farm, it seems like she has something else up her sleeve.
Clarkson, according to reports, is taking his hugely popular Kellyoke series on the road in search of America’s next great voice. His tour bus will serve as a sound stage for fans and talented singers looking to start new careers. It’s a kind of mobile american idol Where The voice— the two shows Clarkson has a long history with.
Clarkson is set to make stops on her bus in major markets like New York, Los Angels, Dallas and Chicago, while watching auditions on TikTok via the hashtag #KellyokeSearch. The mission? To find the best singers to duet with her on her popular daytime TV talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Says Clarkson in a recent video, which you can see below, “This summer we’re taking The Kelly Clarkson Show on the road to find some of the greatest voices across America. Come sing a virtual duet with me on one of my songs.
Clarkson’s show has just been renewed for a fourth season.
Earlier this year, Clarkson released a new EP of her Kellyoke performances, including renditions of songs by Billie Eilish and Linda Ronstadt.
Find out what’s next for Clarkson, who was also the host of another new singing competition, American song contestearlier this year with famed rapper Snoop Dogg, as she begins her new search.
