Fans of Kelly Clarkson know to expect catchy (and powerful!) tunes, lots of laughs, and plenty of fun conversations on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The Emmy-nominated host has earned a reputation for her sunny attitude and killer karaoke moments, but viewers noticed a glaring difference in Kelly's appearance during a short preview posted to the show's YouTube channel last week.
Kelly sported a black eye patch in several scenes of the promotional footage, which caused fans to leave comments questioning her health.
"why is wearing a patch? i hope her eye is alright," one fan queried, while another frantically asked, "Has something terrible happened to her eye? Can anybody explain!? 🙏"
Others took a humorous approach to the situation and asked whether she had become a seafaring pirate for the sake of the show:
"Kelly's a pirate now? 😂" one asked, while another showed excitement for the coming season by enthusiastically commenting, "Season 2 is gonna be great! (Also, what did she do to her eye???)"
However, according to other fans who commented, the eye patch was not hiding anything too dramatic — the singer simply had to cover up an eye infection during the week of filming.
Kelly made light of the situation in a brief clip with guest Dennis Quaid and joked, "Usually I don't look like a pirate." (Of course, he responded with a charming compliment!)
We hope Kelly's eye healed fast!
