Kelly Clarkson – Microsoft Houston – VIDEO

Kelly Clarkson performed in front of  a throng of fans today to celebrate the opening of the brand new  Microsoft store at the Houston Galleria.

The software giant lured people into the new store by offering the 1st 100 customers  two tickets and one post-show VIP pass for Kelly’s concert.  The next 1,100 customers each received two tix to today’s concert.  The rest were given out 1st come 1st serve.

As you can see from the photos, the place was packed! Today’s Galleria appearance was Kelly’s 2nd Microsoft gig. Back in November,  the Season 1 Idol winner helped celebrate the opening of a  Microsoft store at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN.

Kelly’s not the only Idol working the Microsoft circuit.  In May, the American Idol 10 Top 4 helped kick off the opening of a store in Altlanta, GA.

Check out some photos below.  Full gallery HERE. Photos with the fans who won M&G tix  HERE.

    Looking great, Kelly!

  • Listening

    tomr No kidding and I like the outfit too.

  • ituneit

    30 – 50 lbs would do it. The outfit is a bit too tight for someone her size. Plus size girls and pop struggle a bit though Adele has helped to break some of those boundaries

  • GwendolynD

    Looking good, Miss Clarkson!!!!

  • LoveDaRocker

    Its absolutely fantastic that Kelly feels confident enough to wear that. What I and 90% of guys out there think shouldn’t matter.

  • abbysee

    30 – 50 lbs would do it.

    Would do what? Make her a better singer? Make her any sexier than she already is? Oh yeah, make her conform to a one size is sexy, and everyone else can’t play? She’s fabulous. If she lost 30-50 lbs, that would make her somewhere between a size 4 and 0, and pretty much underweight and sickly looking.

    Bottom line, chick can sang!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m not keen on Kelly’s wardrobe choice for this event, but other than that, she’s looking and sounding terrific! What a fabulous voice! :)

  • Tess

    Oh, I absolutely love the dress she wore…so much fun. I think it is great that Kelly is who Kelly “is”….Truth be told, I can never remember what anyone wears 10 seconds after seeing it, but I sure can remember how someone sings and how they sounded.

    Bravo to you! Outstanding comment and I agree 100%. I say this as somebody who has been a size 2 all of my life. I think Kelly is simply stunning and sexy beyond belief.

    America has ridiculous notions on what a woman should look like. Sure I’m a size 2 but I didn’t have boobs even while nursing 5 kids. When you’re a skeleton, no way are you going to have blobs of fat on your chest. But we are all supposed to look like Dolly Parton, who is a freak of nature, lol.

    Kelly is far, far, far from fat. She is not plus-sized by any designers definition. She is an 8-10 max, which is pretty much average in America.

    Kelly will you marry me:)

    I would take Kelly (and her voice) who feels comfortable with her own skin than someone who felt the need to show off her bikini body succumbing to pressure from Jive that dictates her weight and music that sounds just like Britney or everyone else.

  • windmills

    The only significance of Kelly’s looks, the spray tan, the curve hugging dress is this: it looks like she’s got a new stylist and she’ll be playing the game for the next album. Seeing as she’s got THE best voice in pop music and I do think the superficial image stuff turned into a negative distraction for AIEW I’m fine with that.

    Kelly exudes confidence and spunk no matter what and I believe she’s making healthy decisions for herself. My main thing is I still love her hair when it’s this color and I hope she keeps it.

    She sounds good in those videos and I can’t wait to hear her new music whenever that may be.

  • chrislongisland

    hahaha re: the bikini comment

    Immediately made me think of Jordin!!!! HA!!!

    Do I like the dress? No.

    Does Kelly need to lose 30-50 pounds? No.

    Can she sing her ass off? Yes.

    Does anything else matter? No. Not to me.

    Go Kelly. :-)

  • Sasi

    Kelly looks and sounds HOT!!! She is amazing. I do not understand the 30-50 lb comment at all. There would be nothing left of her!!! Comments like that is what is wrong with this world. Kelly is a strong happy confident woman. Why do people have to tear that down? All I have to say is SHE IS AWESOME!!! Cannot wait for her new album. Best singer. Best voice. Best personality. Ms. Clarkson is a gift from heaven.

    Yes, she is playing the game, I like that! I also see that someone got the requisite booty shot, because there is a contingent in her fandom that worships her ass. They wouldn’t change a thing. It’s a nice ass, if I must say so myself.

  • 1wildegirl

    She looks great and has been looking great for a long while. Seriously, the woman is not fat by any means. She’s curvy, it works great for her. As far as her new style, it’s very “pop star,” which, cool for promo and appearances. She’ll revert back to her usual come tour time, lol.

    BTW, yes, nice shot of Bob. I do not worship…but I do admire.

  • nwnelly

    I think Kelly looks great! She was my favorite from season 1. Whenever she’d sing on AI, my husband would cry.
