Kelly Clarkson started out by explaining that the holidays typically bring out a whole “range of emotions” for people. Then, she proceeded to admit she was going to get real with her fans. This was when she gave some background information on the song she was about to perform.

I’m gonna be real with y’all — when I wrote this next song, I was crying my face off, which happens even at Christmastime, everyone. I had just put my kids to bed and I was just going through it, having a really hard time, and it’s been a really tough year for a lot of us. And I wrote this song for me, but also because there aren’t many holiday songs for people feeling alone or lost or just plain sad other than Dolly Parton’s classic ‘Hard Candy Christmas,’ which we all love. It’s about getting through a tough holiday. I absolutely love that song and it allowed me to write this.”

The song tells the story of someone wondering if their ex is a liar

The final song Kelly Clarkson performed during her special was titled “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You).”

When she introduced this track, she admitted that she was nervous. She was nervous because this song was not what people expected when they were turning on a Christmas single. Kelly Clarkson, however, proceeded to acknowledge that a lot of people have had a hard time the past few years. Not just her. And, this unorthodox Christmas single was for all of the people who had things taken from them during the pandemic.

She wanted her song to be about the fact that despite what can be taken away from a person… No one could take Christmas because Christmas was in your heart.

There were so many things taken. But instead of looking at everything that’s gone wrong, we should be looking at all the things that have gone right. And that’s what my therapist tells me anyway so that’s who I’m singing to! But no matter what people try to take from you, nobody can cancel Christmas, y’all.”

Kelly Clarkson filed for the divorce that inspired her new songs last year
