The program is press release states that "In her new daytime talk show, Kelly Clarkson uses her gift of connection to bring viewers something new: a fun, energetic show that breaks with tradition. In each episode audiences will experience an hour full of remarkable stories, celebrity guests, spontaneous surprises, humor, heart and, of course, good music. It's like a weekday brunch party with a fascinating guest list of people who would otherwise never meet."


Paul Telegdy, who was NBCUniversal's president of Alternative Programming, had originally scouted Clarkson to serve as a mentor, and later a coach, on NBC's music competition series ''The Voice''. As part of a corporate restructuring, Telegdy additionally became the head of NBCUniversal's syndication division in late 2016. Despite being reluctant at first, Clarkson accepted the offer for the series in an effort to "connect with people, play games, music and find ways to help or give back to communities/organizations." She also sought advice from various television presenters, including Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, and Blake Shelton. On August 6, 2018, it was reported by ''Broadcasting & Cable'' that Clarkson had filmed a pilot for the talk show that was later offered for syndication, broadcast on another platform, or both. Celebrities such as Josh Groban, Terry Crews, and Chloë Grace Moretz were reported to have participated as her guests on the pilot. She is also accompanied by her touring band for her musical performances in the program, which includes a barn-like studio as a reflection to her "country roots". Clarkson also revealed the talk show will be opened by audience-requested covers of various songs. On September 19, 2018, NBC Owned Television Stations announced that it had picked up the program; it replaced Steve Harvey's eponymous talk show on most NBC owned-and-operated stations, with a number of stations owned by E. W. Scripps Company likewise using it as a replacement for that station group's ''Pickler & Ben''. From Kellyoke/Quaraoke to What I'm Liking. Alex Duda, previously a showrunner of ''The Tyra Banks Show'' and Harvey's 2012–2017 talk show, was commissioned to be the program's executive producer. In November 2019, the series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on September 21, 2020. Midway through the first season, production on the show was suspended on March 13, 2020, after the World Health Organization announced the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
