Kelly Clarkson looked fabulous in fitted blue jeans and a semi-sheer blouse on her talk show that aired on Wednesday.
The star appeared body confident as she interviewed Will & Grace star Eric McCormack.
The 41-year-old Clarkson has slimmed down after making ‘better life choices’ in the wake of her messy divorce and brutal custody battle from Brandon Blackstock, DailyMail.com shared exclusively last week.
She unveiled her shocking weight loss transformation in early October and has been flaunting her curves on her talk show.
The slim-down fueled speculation that she had turned to surgery – or the new celebrity favorite, Ozempic – to shed the pounds.

On Thursday she looked fabulous as well.
The country stars talked about how a dog brought them together.
Kelly, who is reportedly ready to jump back into the dating pool two years after her messy divorce from ex Blackstock, 46, is said to be eating well and working out the ‘old-fashioned way.’
But some say she could have had a ‘little nudge’ to help get in shape.
‘Honestly no one knows how Kelly did it, but it was definitely not surgery,’ an insider told DailyMail.com exclusively.
‘She has been eating well, working out. She has a team of people to help her with nutrition and exercise, but she always takes good care of herself.
‘However, it goes without saying that she had a little nudge from somewhere.’

According to a source close to Kelly (pictured left in March 2022), she likely had ‘a little nudge from somewhere’; seen right on Thursday’s show
The insider, who works on The Kelly Clarkson Show, claimed she was ready to meet a ‘good man’ after feeling under appreciated by her ex.
‘She looks fabulous and feels fabulous so there is nothing to hate on at all,’ they said.
‘Kelly is back in the dating pool, and she is going to find herself a good man after the train wreck divorce she went through.
‘He didn’t appreciate her, and Kelly needs a man to appreciate her like the goddess she is.’
Kelly has yet to publicly address her transformation, but a second source has insisted that she will speak openly with fans if she has used Ozempic.
‘If she were to have taken Ozempic, or if she were to take it in the future, she would be the first person to share that with the world,’ they said.
The motivation for her to lose weight? A revenge body, perhaps. Kelly (seen with ex husband Brandon Blackstock in 2020) is back in the dating game and looking to find a ‘good man’
‘She wouldn’t keep that a secret. She is very transparent and real, and that is the person she always has been. Kelly doesn’t BS anyone.’
Her divorce, relocating from Los Angeles to New York City, and wanting to be ‘healthier’ for her children – River Rose, nine, and Remington Alexander, seven – are all thought to be behind her decision to focus on her well-being.
‘She is now in New York, and the stresses of divorce and those who talked about the toxic work environment at her show have really taken all the toll they could, and now her well-being and health are more of a focus for her and that improvement is now happening,’ the source continued.
‘She is making better life decisions and making decisions that are right for her and her family.
‘Now that she is a single mom, she wants to be healthy for her kids and be around for a long time, so just like everything else, she has maintained her new life and her weight with a structure of doing things the old-fashioned way, through hard work.’
Kelly first flaunted her new figure on Instagram on Saturday as she prepared for an appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
‘What in the Ozempic is going on up in here?’ one of her 7.2 million followers questioned, while another added: ‘Ozempic face.’
A third assumed she was using the drug and commented: ‘Wow. You look amazing. I’m on Ozempic and have lost 90 pounds. It’s the best thing in my life.’
‘Ozempic looks good on you!’ someone else chimed in, while another added: ‘Ozempic works wonders!’
Celebrities including Sharon Osbourne, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer have all used Ozempic.
Kelly, who won the first season of American Idol in 2002, also showed off her slimmed down form while attending the We Can Survive concert in support of mental health awareness on October 14.
In 2020 she admitted that she felt ‘more pressure’ in the music industry when she was thin.
The Since U Been Gone singer said that she used to be shown naked magazine covers of women and told ‘this is what you’re competing with.’
The ex: The star’s weight has fluctuated through the years as she welcomed two kids – River Rose, 9, and Remington Alexander, 7 – with her now ex-husband. They are seen in 2019
‘I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, “This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.” I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are,’ she told Glamour UK.
Kelly and her ex, Brandon, were married for seven years before they split in 2020, setting off a protracted bout of legal squabbling over money.
The divorce dragged on for a year and a half before it was ultimately finalized in March of 2022. It led to a brutal custody fight between the exes, with Clarkson eventually securing primary custody.
Kelly released a bitter break-up album earlier this year called Chemistry that detailed the ‘good, the bad and the ugly’ of her relationship with Brandon.
She recently moved to New York City with their children for a ‘fresh start’ and will now host her self-titled talk show out of the Big Apple.
