Kelly Clarkson stole the spotlight at the Daytime Emmys 2024 in a night filled with glitz and glamour.


The singer-turned-talk-show-host expressed heartfelt gratitude as she accepted her Outstanding Daytime Talk Series award.

Clarkson, 42, recently relocated her show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, from Los Angeles to New York.

It’s a move that came on the heels of her divorce from Brandon Blackstock, according to The News.

The journey to the Daytime Emmys stage was a significant one for Clarkson. After finalising her divorce, she sought a fresh start.


New York became that fresh beginning. On 7 June, during her acceptance speech, Clarkson shared her appreciation for NBC’s unwavering support.

“It’s important to say that not everybody thinks about what’s happening behind the scenes.” Clarkson began, standing tall in a stunning gown.

“The fact that NBC, a huge company, took time and listened.


When I said, ‘Hey, my life is not going super great. I don’t know if I can live here anymore. I don’t know if I can do this.'”

The move from the sun-soaked streets of Los Angeles to the bustling energy of New York City was no small feat.

Clarkson highlighted the immense effort involved. “They wrapped their arms around us, and they helped us move.

The move has been so great, not just for me and my family, but our whole show,” she continued. Her voice was brimming with emotion.

Clarkson’s speech resonated deeply with the audience, according to People.


It was a reminder of the importance of mental health, even in the high-pressure world of entertainment.

“It takes a lot of time and money and effort to do that — it is not unnoticed.

I just want to say ‘Thank You’ for thinking of mental health as a product,” Kelly Clarkson emphasised.

Her words struck a chord, reminding everyone of the human side behind the glamour, according to The Sun

The decision to relocate was not just a logistical challenge but a deeply personal one.


NBC’s willingness to support Clarkson through such a transition spoke volumes about the company’s commitment to its talent.

The fresh start in New York has paid off. The Kelly Clarkson Show has thrived in its new home.

Clarkson’s ability to connect with her audience, sharing both her struggles and triumphs, has made her a beloved figure in daytime television.

This year’s Daytime Emmys was a celebration of resilience and renewal. Clarkson’s journey exemplifies the spirit of perseverance.

Her gratitude towards NBC underscored a rare, genuine moment in an industry often characterised by its fast pace and high demands.


As Clarkson held her Emmy, her joy was palpable. The move to New York wasn’t just about a change of scenery.

It symbolised a new chapter, one filled with hope and possibilities.

Her fresh start, both personal and professional, resonated with many, making her win all the more meaningful.

Kelly Clarkson’s night at the Daytime Emmys was a testament to her strength and determination.

Her story is one of renewal and gratitude, proving that even in the face of adversity, new beginnings are always possible.

And for Clarkson, this new chapter in New York is just the beginning.
