Kelly Clarkson kicked off her new daytime talk show in style, by covering a country classic.

The pop hero has now become a bonafide TV host by launching her own series The Kelly Clarkson Show on NBC in the States, and she began her first episode by taking on the Queen of Country: Dolly Parton.

The former American Idol winner performed a cover of '9 to 5' as part of a hilarious skit which also featured a cameo from Steve Carell.

Kelly celebrated working women in the clip, appearing as construction workers, waitresses, and other everyday workers to Dolly's iconic song about the mundanity of jobs.

The 'Kellyoke' segment has become a favourite with fans already after a week of shows, with Kelly also performing versions of Kelsea Ballerini's 'Miss Me More' and Sia's 'Chandelier' among others.
