SacLeung: The viewer has a problem with the loudness of Clarkson. She talks and laughs so loud as it seems she is yelling at her guests. She needs to focus more on the story of guests because the show is all about sharing the stories of guests not her own.

Datjag: Kelly is my favorite singer and has an amazing voice. She only needs to work on her habit of listening more and talking less as during the interview with Garth Brooks she continued to talk and even don’t stop when Brooks was playing guitar.

Darby: Darby is following Kelly Clarkson since the time of American Idol days. The viewer admires the kindness, and generosity of Clarkson meanwhile her style of singing and voice is phenomenal. As a talk show host, Kelly always takes the statement from the guest and turns it into a story about her own related experience.
