Country singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson holds her own against three male coaches on NBC’s “The Voice.” She digs the competition, too.

“I specialize in winning, but I have won three times on this show,” Clarkson says in a montage of clips. “And I’m just sayin’ I can win, I can get you there. That’s all I’m sayin’.”

In a video Kelly Clarkson posted on Twitter titled “Kelly Vs. The Boys,” she is shown hamming it up with fellow “Voice” coaches Nick Jonas, John Legend, and Blake Shelton.

Kelly Clarkson Is OK Being Only Girl Coach On ‘The Voice’

“This is another season where I’m the only girl,” Clarkson says. “I do love my girls and I’m cool with girls on the show and I’m cool when they’re not because I love hanging with the guys, too.”

She says that she loves being around the other coaches, too. “It’s like having three brothers on set,” Clarkson, who also hosts “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” says.

Take a look at this collection of moments from “The Voice” featuring Clarkson and her other coaches.

“Boys, the queen is back,” Clarkson reminds Jonas, Legend, and Shelton. “You’re welcome.”

Clarkson Deals With Co-Parenting Pressures for Her Kids

While she handles her duties on “The Voice” and her talk-show responsibilities, Kelly Clarkson continues to deal with her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

“You speak about co-parenting, and I’m doing that right now too,” Clarkson told guest Khloe Kardashian on the show. “It’s tough. … I know with me and Brandon, it’s just a difficult thing because we’re in different places, and it’s like, we both agree on the main things, but it’s a hard thing when you’re not together all the time, for me personally.”

Clarkson said being in a different mental space than her ex, Brandon Blackstock, can make it difficult to effectively parent River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4.

“As long as you make sure it’s about the children and their best interests, then we’re both on board,” Kelly Clarkson said.
