  • -You guys, we are joined now by a Grammy Award winner,

  • a coach on "The Voice," and the host

  • of "The Kelly Clarkson Show."

  • One of my favorite people in the world.

  • Kelly Clarkson, everybody. How are you, Kelly?

  • -I'm great today. Don't ask me on any other day.

  • But, yes, good today. [ Laughs ]

  • -You are in the corner of a cabin, yes?

  • -I am. An unfinished one at that.

  • Yep. -Yeah.

  • It's funny all the things that we wanted to finish.

  • We realized it would have been better

  • if we finished them before this all happened.

  • -Yeah, well, we actually started

  • a lot of construction on our ranch,

  • 'cause it's a new ranch for us.

  • So we actually have no home on it yet.

  • So we started it 'cause we thought,

  • "Well, we'll be in L.A. working until, you know, mid-June."

  • And so we thought we'd have the time.

  • So we were, obviously, wrong. [ Laughs ]

  • -Yes. Well, I think a lot of us have been wrong

  • about a lot of things going into this.

  • But I do want to ask, how are you filling time?

  • Have -- Has Kelly Clarkson made any bread?

  • -Here's -- Right?! What is with -- Here's my thing.

  • I'm going to be real with you. I kind of get frustrated --

  • I was on the phone with someone yesterday,

  • and they were telling me how bored they were.

  • And I was like, "I don't have time to talk to you

  • about how bored you are because I've been more busy

  • in my entire life in this pandemic."

  • -Yeah.

  • -Like, all the jobs I'm still doing -- making a record.

  • I just recorded another single

  • that we're going to release yesterday.

  • Like, it's, like -- It's constantly --

  • Every day we're doing something.

  • Plus I get to cook and clean

  • and manage the emotional intelligence of toddlers.

  • So that's been really fun. -Yeah.

  • I feel both feel incredibly lucky through this pandemic

  • to be with my family and to still be able to do the show,

  • but it is nonstop when you don't have a crew around.

  • I also just value the expertise of my crew.

  • And now are you doing -- You're doing "The Voice" remotely.

  • How has that been for you so far?

  • -Uh, well -- [ Laughs ]

  • If people only knew, like,

  • especially even the last show what went into it

  • and how it almost didn't happen.

  • There was just so much chaos going on Tuesday

  • for the live show that it was hysterical.

  • But, like, minutes before, everything finally --

  • we finally got it together.

  • But the best part, though,

  • is I think all of us filming each --

  • You know, we're filming ourselves in like --

  • Like, Tuesday, I had -- I didn't realize it,

  • 'cause I'm such a little tiny box

  • on the little screen they sent us.

  • But I had, like, a Bat Signal of a light,

  • like, just coming on my chest.

  • I didn't realize it.

  • And my family and friends were very quick to text me

  • that I looked like an idiot. -Yes. You know, just --

  • This is a new talk show for you, "The Kelly Clarkson Show."

  • I was lucky enough to be a guest on it.

  • It felt like you were finding your rhythm.

  • And then you obviously have to find a whole new rhythm.

  • How has that been, continuing to do the show?

  • -You know what? You pointed something out.

  • Like, I've always -- Like, since being on "Idol,"

  • I have highly respected crews. Because I --

  • Especially that show. It was the first season.

  • You really got to see how everything went down.

  • And we -- Everything was kind of coming together,

  • and nobody really knew what they were doing.

  • But you really got to know, like, how hard people work

  • and how important every little job is.

  • But, like, now you understand it on a completely different level.

  • Because literally my husband and I are a lighting team.

  • We're a directing team.

  • We're shooting packages for the number-one show on television.

  • [ Laughs ] Like, what? Like, "The Voice."

  • Like, we're shooting all these packages.

  • And I'm like -- I mean, we're --

  • I'm sweating in my pits constantly.

  • Like, I'm just -- 'Cause I'm freaked out

  • 'cause we don't know what we're doing.

  • And I guess that's entertaining in some sense.

  • So people are probably enjoying that.

  • But it's really stressful

  • 'cause we just don't know what we're doing.

  • Like, I'm -- I didn't know what I was doing before.

  • Like, I just started hosting. You know?

  • And now I'm doing all the jobs. -Yeah.

  • -So, you know, it's been chaos even singing from here, too,

  • and, like, getting that done.

  • But "The Voice" is hilarious, though,

  • because Blake and I are so remote.

  • We have, like, 5- to 6-second delays.

  • So everything -- It's, like --

  • You can't watch the screen 'cause people's mouths move.

  • It looks like a "King Kong" film.

  • Like, it's crazy.

  • -Do you -- I mean, obviously,

  • a good-natured ribbing is one of the lifebloods of "The Voice."

  • Is that harder to do with a 6-second delay?

  • And less satisfying without being in person?

  • -I know. You can't really go

  • for any great jabs or do anything.

  • There's no -- It's hard to do the camaraderie.

  • You know, that kind of vibe that we usually have, energy-wise,

  • like, when you're all together.

  • And, you know, with the delay,

  • we're all talking over each other.

  • It's kind of chaos. So, you know, it's --

  • Now, we find ways to do it, but it's a lot harder.

  • But challenge accepted, universe.

  • I've got -- I'm going to still give Blake crap, so..

  • -[ Laughs ] And have you, with your show --

  • You know, one of the challenges for me, because, you know,

  • interviewing people was a skill

  • that I learned by doing a talk show,

  • by having a talk show. -Yeah.

  • -And now Zoom interviews are a whole other thing.

  • Do you feel as though you're getting better at them

  • the longer you go?

  • -Yeah, I mean, I think the thing that's actually --

  • I mean, bright-side buddy, silver lining is,

  • I'm always, like --

  • Timing has never really been my thing metaphorically speaking,

  • as well, like, any part of my life.

  • And so it's kind of -- With the delay and like --

  • You know, sometimes I'm sure you've had this happen

  • where everybody gets blocked up,

  • and they just pause while you're talking to them.

  • -Right. -So it's -- The timing

  • has actually kind of helped me stop

  • and, like, wait until I know they're finished.

  • And then, you know, so that's kind of been really helpful

  • for me because I'm such a chatty conversationalist.

  • Like, I'm such a "Oh, me too!" I'm like Elaine from "Seinfeld."

  • So it's -- You know, it's like --

  • That's a hard thing for me in person

  • 'cause I'm such a conversationalist.

  • So -- And I love to relate and connect.

  • So -- But this has kind of forced me to pause with timing.

  • -It's been interesting. There are times where I've been

  • talking to someone, and they have frozen.

  • And, of course, they don't know they're frozen.

  • So what I try to do is freeze

  • so that they will stop thinking that I'm frozen.

  • You are totally free to use that.

  • -I'm going to totally steal it. -Feel free to use that.

  • And I have some more questions for Kelly Clarkson.

  • We'll be right back after this.

-You guys, we are joined now by a Grammy Award winner,
