Come September, Kelly Clarkson will be talking up a storm with her very own chat show airing right before The Ellen DeGeneres Show. This is what you can expect.

Kelly Clarkson fans, rejoice.

The singer will be getting her very own talk show in September, a chance for her to chat her way through a number of subjects as well as interviewing celebrity guests. The series will air just before The Ellen DeGeneres Show in the afternoons and will be a wide-reaching, all-inclusive chat show for modern audiences.

Clarkson is filming the series right now and told the Guardian that she is enjoying the experience immensely. “I just love communication, and I think there’s a lot of brokenness with that in the world right now; there’s just so much division,” she said. “I want my show to be really inclusive.”

According to reports, the show will be a combination of live music from Clarkson and her backing band, alongside interviews, games, performances and segments filmed on-the-street with audiences. 

And now we have our very first sneak peek at the tone and vibe of the show. 

The teaser clip is more of an extended, hilarious blooper reel than a trailer for the series, and it follows Clarkson as she films introductions for the show in front of a green screen, in the makeup chair and in front of an audience.

“I’m so nervous for what’s about to come out of my mouth,” Clarkson says at the start of the video clip. Later, when she spins around enthusiastically she trills “my mic pack fell off my bra!” In short, this video clip captures all of Clarkson’s madcap, charming energy and it makes us even more excited for the series to premiere. 

The Kelly Clarkson Show will premiere on Monday 9 September

The pilot episode, featuring interviews with Chloe Grace Moretz, Josh Groban and Terry Crews has already been filmed, as have segments with women from North Carolina who quilt, a couple dealing with problems in their sex life and employees from a homeless shelter.

“We are very excited to have Kelly Clarkson on air next fall,” Valari Staab, president of NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations said in a statement. “She’s genuine, warm, fun and interacts with her fans in a meaningful way. Throughout her career people of all ages and backgrounds have related to her openness, honesty and curiosity. She will be the perfect companion to Ellen, providing an afternoon of great television.”

When we heard that Busy Philipps’ talk show had been cancelled at E!, we were waiting for someone to step in and fill that void and provide the smart, honest and fun content that we crave. It sounds like Clarkson’s chat show might be the one to do it.
