DVR Alert: Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale

Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Music Tale

Try saying that title three times fast!

As you have probably seen advertised recently (during The Sound of Music, The Voice, or a myriad of other NBC specials), Kelly Clarkson is bringing some of her best assets to the network for her Cautionary Christmas Music Tale. Specifically, Kelly will bring her talent, sense of humor, and impressive cast of characters in her life to a television audience.

During this special, Kelly presents the brattiest possible version of herself (“Scrooge, diva’d out,” she calls the character) while trying to enlist celebrities to appear in a Christmas special. “We’re doing a show within a show, kind of like White Christmas,” Kelly says. “Let me tell you this, though … it’s nowhere near that good. I love what we’ve done, but that’s a classic.”

Kelly’s show will feature musical performances from mother-in-law, Reba McEntire, along with Trisha Yearwood, both of whom appear on Kelly’s Christmas album Wrapped in Red. The show will also include cameos by Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, William Shatner, Danica Patrick, Heidi Klum, Community‘s Ken Jeong and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy‘s Jai Rodriguez will make appearances. Oh, and did we mention Blake Shelton … as an elf?

This will be an event that Kelly fans and country fans will not want to miss! Tune in to NBC or set your DVRs tonight for the 10:00pm EST airing of Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale! And check out some behind-the-scenes footage of the special, featuring Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton:

Kelly Clarkson Apologizes to International Fans

As you likely have heard, newlyweds Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together, which was announced weeks after their recent marriage. Kelly has revealed in recent interviews, as well as through social media, that the pregnancy has not been easy on her body thus far, and that she has been experiencing her fair share of related sickness.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Kelly apologized to her fans for being “incredibly ill” and hoped that she would be feeling back to normal soon. Kelly tweeted “I’m so sorry 2 all my fans overseas 4 not doing promo 4 my Xmas album. I have been incredibly ill w/pregnancy. Hopefully it gets better soon.”

Premiere of Kelly Clarkson’s “Underneath the Tree” Video

The first single off of Kelly Clarkson‘s Christmas album, Wrapped In Red, has proven to be quite a success in terms of holiday music. Kelly has now released a music video to accompany “Underneath the Tree,” which continues to bring the holiday cheer this season.

Wrapped in gold (and red, of course), Kelly performs the upbeat song about wanting just one thing under her tree this year — that someone special. Kelly’s band trades in their typically comfortable stage attire for a more formal and dapper look, complete with red instruments to capture the spirit of the song. The video also gives a backstage glimpse into Kelly’s preparations for the several performances and specials in which she has participated in celebration of this year’s holidays.

Check out Kelly’s latest music video below and get yourself ready for the upcoming holiday! And if you haven’t already picked up a copy of Wrapped In Red, you might want to ask for that to be underneath your tree!

Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale is set to air December 11th on NBC. The special will center around a comedic story of Clarkson searching for the meaning of Christmas. In recent interviews, she has likened the tale to a diva-spin on A Christmas Carol.

Of course, the powerhouse vocalist will also be performing songs from her new Christmas album, Wrapped In Red. The record was just released last month, and it is absolute Christmas and vocal perfection! We’ve had it on repeat since October.

Her mom-in-law, Reba, and good friend, Trisha Yearwood, helped Clarkson close out her album with a stunning trio version of “Silent Night”, and they join her to perform the classic for the special as well. Also on hand for Clarkson’s Christmas special debut is good buddy, Blake Shelton. Other guests include: Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, William Shatner, Danica Patrick, Heidi Klum, Ken Jeong and Jai Rodriguez.

Set your DVRs! The music tale will air Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
