The Kelly Clarkson Show is embracing the holiday season like no other talk show. Exhibit A: This new Kellyoke segment in which Kelly Clarkson performed a solo rendition of her iconic duet with Ariana Grande, "Santa Can't You Hear Me?"

Clarkson really took the crowd by storm with this performance. Donning a stunning, flow-y red dress and some seriously sleek high-heel boots, Clarkson looked radiant throughout her energetic performance, which had the audience on their feet within moments. 

The stage was transformed into a quaint night near the fireplace, adorned with lit Christmas trees and projections of a crackling fire. Clarkson and her band, Y'all, were rocking around the Christmas tree (literally) without a care in the world.

Throughout the performance, Clarkson slipped between high notes and low notes like the singing legend she is, sounding stunning throughout the entire track. Proving (yet again) that she is a vocal powerhouse, Clarkson ended the performance in iconic fashion by belting the final "Santa can't you hear me?" with the grace of an angel. What more would you expect from Clarkson during the holiday season?
