Kelly Clarkson has been hiding something, and during a concert tonight in LA she accidentally revealed her secret. After an unusually emotional performance of one of her songs, she blurted out, “I’m pregnant!” Realizing what she did, she told the cheering audience, “I want to apologize to my husband, but that was not planned. I just didn’t want you to think I was crazy or something. I just honestly so hormonal today.” Then she added, “Nothing is wrong, everything is great. It’s whoop, whoop.” She ended her surprise announcement, to all, with, “I haven’t vomited yet! That’s a win y’all.” It is things like this, that even if she wasn’t the original American Idol, she would still be the original American Idol.
This is her second child with husband, Brandon Blackstock. Together they have a 14 month old daughter, River Rose, who I bet can’t wait to meet her baby sister or brother sometime around the new year.
Kelly Clarkson was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and the ABC late show gave her an assignment to do. They asked her to sing Tinder profiles. As we know, the original American Idol has an amazing way of making covers her own, and now we are learning she can do the same with dating profiles. Heck, she is so good, I even want to date the guy with the foot fetish.
I wonder how much it would cost to have her sing my dating profile because I need all the help I can get. I just wish my cat didn’t freak out when she heard Clarkson’s high notes.
Kelly Clarkson was performing in Minneapolis yesterday and she covered a song from the city’s biggest star. It rained purple as she made Prince’s Purple Rain her own. When she was done, the audience made it rain with applauds. Which they needed to do.
I’ll be honest, I always hated that song. That is no longer the case because the original American Idol made me change my mind. Wow, just wow!
Maybe next time, she will go crazy in Minnesota and sing Let’s Go Crazy!
Finally, I don’t know why she was so nervous singing that song. If TAFKAP were there, he would’ve bowed down to her like we all did.
Paula Abdul was on The Late Late Show yesterday and James Corden asked her to recreate her most famous music video with him. But how can she do Opposites Attract if MC Skat Cat was animated? The CBS late night host put on a cat suit and performed as her singing partner. Then with two steps forward and two steps back, they made it work purrfectly.
Ever since it was announced that American Idol will be ending next season, everyone has been wondering if it’s biggest star will be back. Not Brian Dunkleman, but Simon Cowell. Well his ex-girlfriend, Terri Seymour, asked him just that for Extra and his answer is surprising. Almost surprising as the fact that he didn’t know it was ending.
When she asked him if he is sad about it, he said “I kind of said goodbye however many years ago.” So will he back, he told her, “I don’t really know, maybe I’ll flip the light switch off at the end or something.” I think that would be perfect.
So as of now Mariah Carey and the King of Mean are out, and I am sure some of the others like Nicki Minaj and Kara Dioguardi will also be missing from it next year. When it comes to who will be back, I am sure Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres and Steven Tyler (as a performer) will be there before Simon is there to turn off the lights.
Are you going to miss Simon next year? Heck, we’ve all been missing him since he left.
Now that Carrie Underwood‘s son, Isaiah, is 3 months old, she is ready to hit the road again. Yesterday, she brought her husband, Mike Fisher, and their son to rehearsal, and they fell asleep. I guess that’s what happens when you have a voice that is perfect for lullabies!
That and we get a really sweet picture of the two most important men in her life.
Simon Cowell shared a photo of himself lying in bed with his son, Eric, watching The Lion King, and I think that the King of Mean is going to need a new nickname.
Seriously how cute is the 55 year old reality show icon with his 14 month son? It almost makes you want to like him. Heck, we already do!.
Back in 2014, Clay Aiken ran for US Congress in North Carolina. The Runner-Up documents his run starting tonight at 10p on Esquire.
The series starts off days before the primary election and he already has a long road ahead of him. He has a group of people supporting him, but it is not obvious if they fully support the newcomer as they should.
Even though they don’t have a lot of faith in him, he will try to get the constituents to do just that. He will do anything he can to get them to vote for him. He will knock on doors, put up signs, attend rallies, visit nursing homes and go to the polling places the day of the election. Will it be enough?
He has tough competition. He is running against Keith Crisco who has been part of the North Carolina political scene for decades. Although Clay wants to run a clean race, things get nasty fast. Behind the scenes, Clay has nothing nice to say about his opponent. Which is understandable by how the race is going between them.
Finally, it is Election Day and it is a very close race between the two of them. By the end of the night, it looks like Clay has barely won, but Crisco can call for a recount. Then something happens that changes the race. It will leave the American Idol runner-up speechless. You don’t want to miss his sincere reaction to the surprising sad news.
You also don’t want to miss the reason that Clay tells us why he decided to run for Congress in the first place. He cries as he explains his reasoning and you will tear up with him.
Tonight is just the first part of Clay’s run for Congress, each week will focus on the different stages of his campaign until that tense day in November when the candidate find out if he is going to Washington.
I have been a fan of Aiken’s since American Idol, so of course I found this show captivating. But it isn’t only my admiration for him that will get me tuning in, I found it really interesting what goes on behind the scene in a local political race. If you are into politics, then this a show you are going to vote for every week. If you are into American Idol, then you will do. If you are fan of neither, I still think you will vote for The Runner-Up.
Carrie Underwood took to Twitter today to announce that her husband, Mike Fisher, and her welcomed a little boy on Friday. Hopefully little Isaiah Michael will get his father’s sports ability, his mother’s singing talent and his parents’ good looks. It’s hard from this photo to tell who he looks like.
