Kelly Clarkson was ready to go for Halloween when she hosted the Monday, October 31 episode of her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show. Of course, Kelly dressed up in costume to celebrate the holiday. For her 2022 look, Kelly has a “ghostly Stevie Nicks” costume. She styled her hair in Stevie Nicks curls and rocked a frayed white dress, teamed with a gold hooded jacket and light makeup. Her talk show set was also transformed to have a spooky campfire atmosphere for the episode.
The Kelly Clarkson Show first premiered in September 2019, so it was the fourth year that Kelly was able to celebrate Halloween with her viewers. In 2021, Kelly hosted a Ghostbusters themed show for Halloween, wearing the iconic Ghostbusters uniform as she celebrated with some guests. In 2020, Kelly channeled Meryl Streep as her character in the 1992 movie, Death becomes her. For her Madeline Ashton look, Kelly wore a sparkly gown, blonde wig and feathered boa. This is the same look that Meryl wore in the opening scene of the movie.
For her first Halloween show in 2019, Kelly honored Hocus Pocus by dressing as Bette Midler’s Winifred Sanderson from the 1990s movie. Wearing the iconic Winifred Sanderson wig and dress, Kelly took things to the next level as she sang “I Put A Spell On You” for the spooky Halloween-themed episode. Kelly is known for doing karaoke on her talk show, and this was the perfect song to take on for Halloween.
Kelly has had great success since her talk show debut in 2019, and she jumped in Ellen DeGeneres’ old talk show timeslot to The Ellen DeGeneres Show ending in 2022. “No one is going to film Ellen’s shoes,” Kelly admitted. Variety earlier in the year. “I hold the Oprahs and the Ellens in such high esteem. Very few people can conquer what they have conquered. My team is excited and I believe in my team. But I am by no means standing in anyone’s shoes. I don’t want that pressure.” Kelly won 13 Emmy Awards in his first three seasons.
Meanwhile, Kelly also supports the other women who now have talk shows, such as Jennifer Hudson, Drew Barrymore, Sherri Shepherd and Tamron Hall. “There’s room for everyone,” she gushed. “I just wanted to say that because I don’t like how people pit us against each other. I want to make sure everyone knows that we support each other. We are all so different and daytime is a great platform for all of us to bring something positive into the world.”
Of course, fans are also excited about new music from Kelly, who has confirmed that she will return with a new record in 2023. “It’s an important album,” admitted Kelly, who was recently divorced. “I’m working on this in therapy. I sometimes struggle to voice what I feel, so music is helpful for me. It was really healing.”
