The Kelly Clarkson Show is not even on the air yet, and the newly minted host is already facing challenges. The American Idol OG winner and The Voice coach was ready to chat with Kevin Hart on her new afternoon talk show as her FIRST GUEST EVER. But, unfortunately, the comedian was in a serious accident over the weekend that required back surgery. He’s OK, but needless to say, will have to postpone his appearance.
BUT all was not lost! Stepping in to fill the void was actor Dwayne Johnson, who interrupted his honeymoon to fill in for Kevin. What a guy. Or as Kelly said, he “stepped the heck up!”
“He left his honeymoon…his wife probably hates me…to come here and take Kevin’s place,” said Kelly in the short clip below. Dwayne enters the stage, bearing a flower for the new talk show host. As the audience went wild, Kelly said, “I think they like you!”
