Kelly Clarkson's Christmas special that aired on NBC Wednesday night has been deemed a big hit by fans, as well as by those who took part in its production. Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Music Christmas Tale featured lots of guest stars, as well as a storyline about trying to line up said stars for her Christmas special.
The premise of the tale was Kelly trying to lock George Clooney into the role of Santa Claus for her Christmas special. And in doing so, she didn't care whose toes she stepped on or whose feelings she hurt. It was a story with a moral--a bit trite--but likely well-received by those who view Christmas specials.
Kelly was amazing behind the mic, but as with Carrie Underwood in The Sound of Music, her acting skills required some coaching. But that certainly wasn't why fans tuned in. It was Kelly's rendition of classic Christmas tunes and her performance of her original songs that no doubt held viewers captive.
Clarkson said it was hard watching herself on TV.
It is so awkward watching yourself on TV but thank you so much to Done & Dusted, and the band, and all the actors!! Y'all are awesome!

Reba McEntire, who appeared on the show--and is also Kelly's husband, Brandon Blackstock's, stepmom, congratulated the singer via Twitter.

Blake Shelton, who appeared on Kelly's Christmas special (at one point dressed as an elf!) lauded her amazing vocal ability.

If you missed Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Music Christmas Tale, you missed a treat. Maybe NBC should consider re-airing this Christmas special instead of another entire evening of The Sound of Music?
