Press: Kelly Clarkson Returns For The Voice Season 16? Looks That way..

The caption to this article reads: John Legend Joins ‘The Voice’ Season 16 as Coach.

I’m happy John is joining. He was on Duets with Kelly years ago and has performed with her. The best of the article says this: Season 16 will launch this spring. He joins returning coaches Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton, and host Carson Daly. Does this confirm Kelly’s return next season? I sure hope so.

Press: Kelly Clarkson Fans Want Her to Headline Super Bowl Halftime Show After U.S. Open Performance

Kelly Clarkson for Super Bowl 53!

The 36-year-old The Voice judge delivered a captivating performance at the U.S. Open on Monday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, New York, where she sang a few of her biggest hits including, “Since You Been Gone,” “Miss Independent” and “Stronger,” belting out powerful notes with each song.

Following the opening ceremony performance, some of Clarkson’s fans expressed their desire to see her headline the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show.

“I feel like @Kelly_Clarkson just submitted her audition for the Super Bowl,” one fan tweeted.

“Omg @Kelly_Clarkson performing at the #USOpen50 opening ceremony. The most fitting anthem queen for the 50 yr anniversary. Also this opening is 1000x better than the Super Bowl halftime show- @nfl take note!!!! BOOK THIS QUEEN!!!!” another user wrote.

Another Twitter account holder tweeted, “Whoever is in charge of the super bowl halftime show may I introduce to you @kelly_clarkson. Way to go Kelly!”

“Why haven’t we had a Kelly Clarkson Super Bowl halftime show yet,” one fan said.

For the performance, mother of two Clarkson dazzled in a silver tasselled dress, which she paired with a black belt. She styled her signature blonde tresses in loose waves.

Clarkson has not yet addressed whether or not she would be interested in performing at the Super Bowl, but she did rave over her U.S. Open performance on social media.

“There’s nothing like opening for @SerenaWilliams at the @USOpen! — Team KC,” Clarkson tweeted.

After Clarkson’s performance, Serena Williams hit the court in a one-shoulder pleated tulle skirt designed by Virgil Abloh for Off-White.

Press/Video: Inside Kelly Clarkson’s Talk Show

Kelly Clarkson is already getting to work on her daytime talk show. ET has learned that the 36-year-old singer filmed her pilot episode at NBC Universal Studios in Los Angeles on Friday. According to an observer, the stage for Clarkson’s show is dressed to look like the inside of a barn, with string lights decorating the set and wooden beams with gold records on the walls. The show’s band was set up in the corner.

Clarkson started off the taping with a Cardi B cover and, per the observer, she will be doing her own rendition of a popular song at the top of every show. During the test run, The Voice judge explained that she “wanted to make a show that addresses real people with real issues.”

Her first celebrity guests included Chloe Grace Moretz, Josh Groban and Terry Crews, as well as a group of quilting ladies from North Carolina, a homeless shelter employee and a couple who was having trouble in the bedroom. The talk show featured games, singing segments and interviews that ranged from silly to sentimental, with the observer noting, “She’s definitely still Kelly.” There was also a separate guest live audience, who were watching from a salon in Chicago and commented throughout the whole show.

It wasn’t all work and no play for Clarkson, the observer notes, as her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and their two children — 4-year-old daughter River and 2-year-old son Remington — were there supporting her.

A source told ET earlier this week that the American Idol alum was working on a daytime talk show for NBCUniversal Television Distribution that would be slated for fall 2019. The show is part of Clarkson’s overall deal with NBC, which also includes her return as a coach for season 15 of The Voice.

Clarkson has always embraced all the new paths her career has taken, telling ET last year that, in the entertainment industry, “you’re either not working at all or you’re working every day and every hour.”

“You just want to make sure you’re happy and you love what you’re doing,” the “Since You Been Gone” singer expressed. “I love my life.”

Press: Kelly Clarkson Defends Her Gay Fans in Inspiring Tweet: ‘Love Shared Between Two People Should Be Praised’

Ever since winning the very first season of American Idol, pop singer Kelly Clarkson has been an outspoken ally to the LGBTQ community. Whether she was supporting contestants during her stint as a judge on The Voice, including a gay couple in her “Tie It Up” video or just acknowledging her queer fans, Clarkson has always made it a point to be there for the LGBTQ community.

Part of being a supportive ally means standing up for marginalized communities when they are being attacked, and Clarkson certainly didn’t shy away from that task on Monday (August 20). A commenter responded to the singer’s support of two of her fans’ same-sex wedding, using homophobic slurs and calling homosexuality “a sin any way you cut it.”

Instead of ignoring the comment, Clarkson decided to make an example out of the tweet, retweeting and commenting on the post herself. “I almost didn’t respond 2 this because hate doesn’t deserve a spotlight but u know what, truth does,” she wrote. “The truth is that God is Love, & Love shared between two people should be praised not condemned in my personal opinion. I love u 2 although we see the world/love differently.”

Fans immediately praised Clarkson not only for standing up for two of her queer fans, but for handling the situation properly without putting anyone else down. The fan who was being attacked thanked the “Breakaway” singer, saying, “I saw that comment and was going to say something, but it wouldn’t have been as nice as you just put it,” she wrote. “Thank you for standing up for ‘us’ and more importantly, for what you believe in.”
