The Kelly Clarkson Show relocated to New York City, and if you want to be in the audience, there is a waitlist. And, a hefty price to go with it. She’s at the pinnacle of her career right now, but she admitted that she wasn’t the perfect contestant on American Idol. This week, fans of the show shaded her for not being a perfect host, either.

The Kelly Clarkson Show appearance was in honor of the 30th Anniversary of Blue Album. The members of the band seem like quiet people, especially Rivers Cuomo. Meanwhile, the host seemed to be the total opposite. Actually, she and Brooke Shields looked and sounded over-the-top excited.

Bouncing around and waving her arms, she seemed like a stark contrast to Rivers’ quiet demeanor. Making it worse, while he looked uncomfortable, she went on about his quiet “energy.” And, viewers felt that she mocked him when she said that she’d “really want to host a show” with him.

In the comments of the Kelly Clarkson Show on YouTube, fans slammed the host’s behavior. Here are some of their opinions:

  • It was like a chihuahua interviewing a cat.
  • She acted like they were being weird, but she was being such a spaz.
  • In the beginning was fun, but as an introverted person I thought that it was too much, it was kind of mocking those guys. I didn’t like it.
  • I am on the fence between [her] being funny or slightly making fun of the [quiet] guy.

In fairness to Kelly though, many people enjoyed the humorous banter during the talk show.
