“The Voice” coach Kelly Clarkson has an extensive, widely known library of songs. Recently appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the star shared how she reacts when hearing her own music in public.

Telling Jimmy Fallon she likes to “sing along and dance” when one of her songs comes on, she joked she’s “a total tool.”

She even recollected one time when she was at a home improvement store with a friend, Tricia, and heard one of her songs. Wasting no time, she proceeded to sing along and embarrass Tricia.

“I was just having a good day and I feel like you should really lean in to that right now in this point in life if you’re having a good day. And so, I leaned in and I just started dancing and embarrassing my friend Tricia in Lowe’s and just started dancing and singing.”

“I did a full-on got on my knees. I was very into it,” Clarkson admits.

In the same interview, Fallon brought up the fact her song “Since U Been Gone” is Tony Hawk’s favorite tune to get him hyped up. While flattered the skateboarding legend enjoys it so much, she has no idea why her music gets people excited or is used when working out.

“I feel like I always hear people talking about how my music is always on some Peloton playlist or some workout. And I’m like, ‘It does not make me wanna work out. Why doesn’t it have the same effect? It doesn’t make me wanna run, but great for you.'”

Regardless, Clarkson’s music seems to incite passion, even if it’s just herself singing along in a home improvement store.

Live Audiences Will Return To Kelly Clarkson’s TV Show For The First Time Since 2020

Aside from starring on “The Voice,” Kelly Clarkson’s own show has news of its own. For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, “The Kelly Clarkson Show” will have a live audience.

Airing on September 13, the first week of filming will happen at the Lincoln Center in NYC. After that, the show will return to Universal Studios in Hollywood. It should be noted all audience members will need to be fully vaccinated.

“We can’t wait to kick off our 3rd season of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” celebrating New York City…a city that is known for its energy, resilience, and the arts that have been inspiring me since I was a kid!” Clarkson announced.

“I warned people last season that mama would show up if I kept getting invited…well, no take-backs, here I am New York!”

Until now, Clarkson hosted a virtual audience for the second season. Before that, she filmed remotely on her ranch in Montana. Though she thought doing so was creative, she said she’s happy to be face-to-face with fans again.
