How to Watch

Check your local listings for The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Clarkson teamed up with her former fellow Voice Coach Ariana Grande for a show-stopping performance of "Santa, Can't You Hear Me?" for The Voice holiday show. As some of the most impressive vocalists at the moment, Grande and Clarkson blend effortlessly for this track.

"Run Run Rudolph"

Proving that Clarkson can tackle any rock n' roll track that comes her way, "Run Run Rudolph" is a blast of a listen from her first holiday album, Wrapped in Red. Clarkson takes the holiday classic and gives it her own spin, and the resulting song is downright merry.

"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"

It's no shocker that Clarkson nails Brenda Lee's rock-tastic holiday classic from 1958, giving it a unique modern spin around the tree. 

"Silent Night" (featuring Reba and Trisha Yearwood)

You had us at "Kelly Clarkson sings with country music superstars Reba and Trisha Yearwood." While "Silent Night" is always a holiday season must-hear, the holy trinity of Yearwood/Reba/Clarkson performing it is even better.

"Christmas Isn't Canceled (Just You)"

Clarkson gave her fans the gift of seven original songs on her When Christmas Comes Around... albumwith the jazzy hit "Christmas Isn't Canceled (Just You)" being one of the most bop-worthy tracks. 

"Jingle Bell Rock"

Calling all Mean Girls fans who know and love the timeless Bobby Helms track: Clarkson has her own rendition, and it's just as amazing. You'll be dancing with your friends to this cover in no time.

"Merry Christmas (To the One I Used to Know)"

"Merry Christmas (To the One I Used to Know)" is another original track off Clarkson's sophomore holiday album that will have you fighting tears. 

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" (featuring Ronnie Dunn)

Clarkson is a country music stan and demonstrates that with the heavily-covered holiday classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside" alongside country star Ronnie Dunn. 

"Glow" (with Chris Stapleton)

It's hard not to bop your head to Clarkson and Stapleton's original holiday hit, "Glow," which gives "Jingle Bells" a run for its money. Get ready for visions of hot cocoa while snuggled up by the fire to dance in your head. 

"White Christmas"

"White Christmas" is a cherished classic, and Clarkson's rendition is bound to make your holiday season merry and bright. 

"All I Want For Christmas Is You"

It takes some major skill to cover Mariah Carey's repeat-worthy single "All I Want For Christmas Is You," but if anyone was up to the challenge, it's Clarkson. 

"Underneath the Tree"

We dare you to stroll through Macy's this holiday season without hearing Clarkson's 2013 track "Underneath the Tree" playing over the loudspeakers, and honestly, who's complaining? Like the many timeless classics that came before it, "Underneath the Tree" is destined to be played during the holidays for many seasons to come.
