Kelly Clarkson earned some serious bragging rights earlier this year when Dolly Parton enlisted her to record a duet of the classic 1980 single “9 to 5” reimagined as a somber pop ballad for her documentary Still Working 9 to 5. Now, after the latest performance on the Kellyoke segment on the The Kelly Clarkson Show, the host can add performing the collaboration live, alongside the country icon herself to her list of brag-worthy accomplishments. Check it out below!
By the end, Clarkson had literally bowed to Parton. “I am so honored that Dolly asked me to reimagine this iconic song, ‘9 to 5,’ with her,” the singer shared in a statement when the duet originally arrived in September. “She is so talented, an inspiration to all women, and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I hope y’all like what we did, but even if you don’t, remember I got to sing a duet with the magical Dolly Parton and now have bragging rights til the end of time!”
In a separate statement, Parton added: “Nobody sings like Kelly Clarkson. She makes any song come alive. I love her voice on ‘9 to 5’ and I am so proud I got to sing with her on it.”
Dolly Parton appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show for a full hour segment. The two had many memorable moments, including an impromptu duet of, “I Will Always Love You.” You can check that out below as well!
