Pop music sensation Kelly Clarkson was in for a treat when she appeared on CBS’ “The Late Late Show”’ for the latest segment of its popular “Carpool Karaoke” feature. Little did she know that show host James Corden had arranged a date night for her and her manager/husband, Brandon Blackstock.
Following a brief jam out to hits like, “Since U Been Gone,” “Because of You,” “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” and “Love So Soft,” James asked Kelly if she spends enough time with her husband outside of work.
“It’s difficult because I work a lot and I’m a mom, but we try,” Kelly explained with a look of skepticism on her face. She then added, “Did my husband talk to you? Is this an intervention?”
Nope. Not quite an intervention, but, yes, James did talk to Brandon.
“I thought maybe we could arrange a date night for you and Brandon right now,” James said, prompting Kelly to shout out, “Oh my god! I love what’s happening!”
To set the mood for romance, Kelly, who was then prompted to jump in the back seat of the car, was handed a mini table laden with china, a candle and a rose. But when Brandon then made his way into the car next to his bride, it was clear he was not used to being on camera.
“Are you sweating?” Kelly asked her hubby.
Perspiration aside, Brandon grabbed a a chocolate-covered strawberry and fed it to the “American Idol” champ.
“That was pretty sexy … I feel like we’re making a porn,” he said after Kelly took the fruit.
“Hang on. Stop this,” James, who was keeping watch from the driver’s seat, while in the company of a violinist, said. “Did you just say you feel like we’re making a porn? That is not the romantic thing to say to her! This is a romantic date night! Start again. Romance, romance, romance!”
For the record, Brandon did try to re-start the date. But, his idea of sparking up romance involved conversation about reports from the couple’s farm.
