Kelly Clarkson has a new “9 to 5” job, and she celebrated it in the perfect way…through music!
Months ago, it was announced that Clarkson would be hosting her own talk show on NBC. Called The Kelly Clarkson Show, the program debuted on September 9.
A number of clips were released to promote the show, and one gave Clarkson the chance to showcase her powerhouse vocals. And she did so while singing a country music classic!
The classic song we’re talking about is Dolly Parton‘s workplace anthem, “9 to 5.” The country superstar penned the song for the film she starred in of the same title.
Parton won two Grammy Awards for the song, which topped the Hot Country Songs chart and the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song has been covered many times through the years, with artists such as Carrie Underwood and Reba McEntire offering up their own renditions. It’s also been covered many times on The Voice, which is another NBC show and features Clarkson as a coach.
Clarkson embraced the song’s fun, upbeat vibe with her performance, which was powerful and full of personality. The clip in which she sings the song shows her taking on a number of “9 to 5 ” jobs, as she dresses like a waitress, fireman, construction worker, and more.
You can watch Clarkson sing “9 to 5” to promote the show by tuning in to video below.
We hope this performance leads to Parton being a special guest on Clarkson’s show at some point. It would be so cool to watch them sing a duet!
