The Kelly Clarkson Show is currently placed fourth in all syndicated talk shows, according to Deadline.

Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of creative affairs at NBCUniversal Television Distribution, said in a statement: ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show is connecting with viewers in a unique way and we are so happy to build on that momentum, bringing Kelly’s brand of humour, heart, and, of course, the incredible Kellyoke, to stations for a second season.

‘It is a privilege to be in business with Kelly and our production team, led by Alex Duda, who have a clear creative vision and a talent for storytelling and creating quality entertainment that invites you in for a good time and leaves you feeling happy.’
The Breakaway hitmaker recently said it was her husband Brandon Blackstock – with whom she has children River, five, and Remington, three – who convinced her to take on the new challenge when the idea was first presented to her this year.
She said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show: ‘[My husband] really convinced me to do it because I really love that – there’s a lot of negativity going on right now, and I don’t love that – but there’s a lot of negativity and a lot of division, and one of my big things on tour is that it brings people together.

‘And my audience is filled with tons of random people that would probably never be in the same place.
‘And I want my show to be like that, and he convinced me on that about the fact of all the good we could do and inclusion.’
Among the many light-hearted aspects of her show is Kellyoke, which sees the singer begin each episode with a cover of a classic or popular song.
