Kelly Clarkson, host of The Kelly Clarkson Show and coach on The Voice, lost a contest because she didn’t recognize her own song in front of actress Anne Hathaway.
in the video, This is a clip from part of their talk show. Clarkson asks for a song she will recognize in the game Sing That Name That Tune hosted by Matt Iseman.
“Can you play a damn song I know?” Clarkson asks ahead of the third round of the contest. Iseman instructs the band to do just that.
Hathaway belted out “Since You Left”
After just three bars of music, Hathaway begins belting out the lyrics to Clarkson’s hit “Since U Been Gone,” and Clarkson falls to the ground, embarrassed at not recognizing her own hit first.
“Just because of that, how did you know?” Clarkson asked in disbelief.
Hathaway replied, “Kelly Clarkson, you don’t understand how much we all love this song. Everyone here knew this song. Everyone here knew it.”
“This is embarrassing,” Clarkson shared with the audience.
Hathaway beat Clarkson in the contest
A separate video uploaded The Kelly Clarkson Show YouTube page shows Clarkson losing the contest to Hathaway. The game was basically just like the original Name That Tune, but the stars had to sing the song instead of just naming it. The winner won a side for the side of the audience he represented.
“I don’t want to freak you out, but I have a foolproof strategy, so good luck,” Hathaway told Clarkson before the contest.
First, the band played “Piano Man,” and it was a few bars before Clarkson stepped onto the platform. She said she didn’t know the song, but Hathaway then started singing the song. She didn’t get the lyrics right, but she still got the point for the first round.
The second song was also initially recognized by Clarkson, but again she didn’t know the lyrics, so Hathaway got the point, and they gave a bonus point for their “aggressive” vocals.
The third song was “Since U Been Gone,” which Hathaway immediately began singing. Clarkson was a bit sad afterwards, and then Iseman said that the next song is worth five points, meaning whoever gets the next song wins.
“I’m terrible at this!” Clarkson said before the band started singing.
Clarkson started singing “Ice, Ice Baby” for the next song, but Hathaway started singing “Under Pressure.” They sang the songs at the same time and both thought they were right.
“I want to tell you what just happened,” Iseman said. “Vanilla Ice stole this song from Queen. You just created a brand new arrangement.”
The points went to both women, meaning Anne Hathaway ultimately won the competition.
“This is the first time on the show that I’m just glad I’m losing,” Clarkson said. “That was outstanding. However, when it comes to music, this is my show.”
The Voice has not yet been renewed for season 22. If the show is extended, it would likely be mid-September.
