Interesting facts and trivia about Kelly Clarkson. By Songfacts®.

Kelly Clarkson explored her heritage when she appeared on TLC's ancestry-themed series Who Do You Think You Are?. She was excited to discover that her great-great-great-grandfather, Isaiah Rose, was a Civil War veteran who became a sheriff, then a Republican Ohio State Senator in 1906. "I could not be more proud of this man," the singer said as she leafed through historical documents detailing Rose's service, including his time as a prisoner of war.

She became a coach on The Voice in 2018. It went so well, she got her own daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, the following year.

Clarkson belted out "My Country, 'Tis Of Thee" at President Obama's 2013 inauguration, but it was Beyonce's "The Star Spangled Banner" that drew more media attention. While Clarkson gave a passionate live performance, Beyoncé (eventually) admitted she lip-synched hers, which Clarkson thought was completely understandable. When asked for her opinion about the controversy, she told "It really didn't matter to me; take it from a girl that has stood there. It's the most nerve-wracking environment I've ever been in. Everything in your heart and soul is praying to God that you don't mess up. And why is it, because that event isn't about me or Beyoncé or James Taylor, we're just the jazz hands on the side. It's about the President and it's a historical event and it's about our country. I could totally see why someone wouldn't want to mess that up and pre-tape it." As for the practice of lip-synching, Clarkson confided that she's never done it so far because she's terrified something will go wrong like "the track would skip."
