Kelly Clarkson announces Vegas residency, won’t she get burnt out?

Kelly Clarkson just launched her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show in September. CNN reported in late October that Kelly’s show averages about “1.9 million viewers per episode,” which puts her “in fourth place among syndicated daytime talk shows.” Kelly opens each show by singing a cover of a song requested by an audience member in a segment she’s dubbed, “Kellyoke.” Given Clarkson’s career as a singer and the ways that she’s incorporated performing into her talk show, perhaps this news won’t come as a surprise to everyone, but Kelly’s going to be doing a lot more singing next year. She’s announced a Vegas residency:

Kelly Clarkson fans have been waiting for a moment like this: The singer is getting her very own Las Vegas residency.

The original “American Idol” winner made the announcement Friday on her daytime talk show.

“It’s not an April Fools’ joke, but it does debut April 1,” Clarkson said.

The Vegas show, titled “Invincible” after one of Clarkson’s songs, will run to September 2020 at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. A list of dates was posted to Clarkson’s official website.

The announcement comes as Clarkson is almost two months into her talk show.

Kelly gave everyone in her audience a pair of tickets to a show, along with dinner and a hotel stay. This is…nice, I guess? I can’t figure out why she’s doing a residency while she’s filming a talk show, though. It’s starting before the typical summer hiatus, right? I didn’t think daytime talk shows filmed that many shows ahead of time. I doubt that Kelly can do both, so I don’t think she’s going to move her show to Vegas for a few months. Jumping from one to the other means that she’s not going to have much downtime, which I’d think she’d need, but maybe not. I’m glad that Kelly is returning to singing, and obviously, she’s the best judge of knowing what kind of schedule she’s capable of maintaining. I just hope that she doesn’t burn out!

    She might only have weekend performances when the show is filming?

  2. Noely says:

    All I can say about this is that I love her and I wish I could see her live, but her talk show + this new residency means the chance of her coming to Europe in the next years is pretty slim…

    Oh well, I’m just happy to see her thrive!

    EDIT: Woah, I just realized that it’s actually a DAILY show. I somehow thought it was weekly or something. That’s really a lot of work she’s doing there. Can anyone tell me if “ranking fourth among syndicated daytime talk shows” is a good thing? Like, I have no idea how many talk shows are there in the ranking overall?

    • Starkiller says:

      Huh? Why would she come to Europe? She’s not famous outside of the US at all, no ones ever heard of her in Europe.

      • Tia Maria says:

        She is absolutely known in Europe. I’ve seen her show (in the U.K.) at a big venue that Beyonce has also had a show, so definitely known.

      • Noely says:

        I strongly disagree, there was a time where her songs played on the radio a lot, at least here in Germany, and she was definitely known here. She may not be as popular around here as before, but if she decided to do concerts here, there would definitely be an audience.

  3. Millennial says:

    I’m just super impressed by her longevity. She could have been a one album wonder but she’s still got a great career

    • Aliyah says:

      She really does. It’s been what, 18 years since she won American Idol? It just goes to show what a combination of talent, good hits, and not being an ass to work with can do.

    • Rhys says:

      I’m not. It would’ve been surprising if most all of the winners of that show continued being A-list celebrities. Some of them dropped off of the face of Earth. Clarkson and Underwood to me are the only two who took to it like ducks to water.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    To me that sounds like the talk show will not continue? I don’t see how she could do both.

    I’d really love to see her live, I missed her last tour, so I hope she goes again sometime. I’m not that interested in going to Vegas, but I hope the residency is successful for her. She’s one of the best singers ever.

  5. Nicegirl says:

    Ok. Gotta go to Vegas ✨

  6. Emily says:

    Justin Timberlake wishes.

  7. original_kellybean says:

    Well, if you put into terms for “regular” people. We go to work an average 5 days a week, 8 hours a day for 30 or so years…

  8. ME says:

    Ok they really slimmed her face in that Vegas promo pic. Why ???

    • JennyJenny says:

      I just saw that as well. And it’s so wrong ~ we can see what she looks like.
      And she allowed it to happen.

    • Senator Fan says:

      She’s lost a lot of weight recently and looks great. They photoshop everyone not just her on those posters.

  9. Abby says:

    I love her. I love her voice, her humor, her down to earth nature. She is so real and seems to have kept that quality from the very beginning. I think she’s beautiful… but damn I would love to offer just a littttttle bit of help in the style area. These pictures aren’t terrible at all (comparatively speaking) but some of her stuff in the last year has just been freaking awful. They don’t do her beauty justice at all. And no I’m not a stylist but a homeless person off the street would do a better job then whover has been dressing her in recent years.

  10. Senator Fan says:

    Love her and wish I could see her live. I like her show it’s light with a variety of topics. Wish her all the best!
