Pop music sensation Kelly Clarkson brought her powerhouse voice to the stage on Dec. 19 as part of the season 13 “The Voice” finale on NBC. While there, she delivered her television debut performance of the song “Medicine” from her eighth studio album, “Meaning of Life,” which was released in October.

During the performance, Kelly stood on a giant platform surrounded by a full band and bright, pink lights. She dazzled in a long-sleeved dress that was covered in stars, and paired her look with black leggings and matching shoes. With a bit of help from a harmony section, she belted out the dance-worthy tune at the top of her lungs. Midway through the tune, she walked down a mini staircase and energized the studio audience with her undeniable spunk.

Yep, we already can’t stop singing along to this song!

Fans, of course, already know that Kelly is no stranger to reality sing-off competition shows. Not only was she the first-ever winner of “American Idol,” but she also belted out an emotional version of “Piece by Piece” during the “Idol” farewell show, bringing judge Keith Urban to tears.

But although “American Idol” is set to come back on new network ABC in 2018, Kelly will not be joining the panel. Instead, she is set to take up a red chair on season 14 of “The Voice,” alongside longtime coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine and returning coach Alicia Keys.

Kelly actually got her feet wet working on the show earlier this year, serving as a trusty key adviser during the grueling “Knockout Rounds.” So, we have a feeling she’ll be ready to coach her own team when the show returns February 26 on NBC.

Aside from Kelly’s performance, the two-hour “The Voice” finale also featured a variety of other superstar acts including Demi Lovato, N.E.R.D., Sia, Charlie Puth and season 12 “The Voice” champion Chris Blue.

In addition to that, fans got to see amazing collaborations, including country singer Vince Gill and Team Blake finalist Red Marlow, ’80s pop sensation Billy Idol and Team Blake’s show winner Chloe Kohanski, jazz artist Norah Jones and Team Adam’s Addison Agen, and Australian singer-songwriter Sia and Team Miley’s Brooke Simpson, just to name a few.
