And another one bites the dust.

Kelly Clarkson has added her name to the ever-growing list of entertainment and sports Coronavirus casualties. On March 15th, the inaugural American Idol winner, talkshow host, and Voice coach announced the delay of her upcoming Las Vegas residency - and further reiterated a production halt of The Kelly Clarkson Show.

"As you may know, production on The Kelly Clarkson Show was temporarily shut down late last night." Her social media statement came just after 4pm Pacific on Sunday.

"Out of concern and care for everyone's safety, we have chosen to postpone the April 1 opening of my Las Vegas residency, Invincible, until July."

Like many others acts are offering, Clarkson ensured fans that their original ticket purchases will be honored at the rescheduled dates.

"Details regarding ticket replacement are forthcoming and I can't wait to see you this summer. For now, please keep your loved ones close, safe and healthy."

Interestingly, the idea of refunds was never given a mention - another somewhat common trend amongst entertainers as of late.

Her announcement comes just 48 hours of that of The Jonas Brothers' canceling of their Las Vegas residency. Middle JoBro Joe was the first to break the bad news to his followers via Instagram.

"Hey guys, we've been monitoring the situation and after careful consideration and growing concern for our fans, touring staff, and families' wellness we regret to announce that our April 1-18 Las Vegas residency is being cancelled." His caption sweetly said that he and his family were praying for everyone's safety and reassured fans that they'd be back soon.

"We did not make this decision lightly," the band's statement continued. "We were SO excited for the opportunity to share an amazing show with you guys, but nothing is more important than everyone's health and safety."

Their run was set to be held at Sin City's famed Park Theater at Park MGM Resort. The timing might be good, though: Joe is rumored to be expecting his first child with wife Sophie Turner later this year, but the couple has not made public confirmation.

On a funny note, Nick Jonas visited his fellow Voice coach on The Kelly Clarkson Show last year. During his late-November appearance, the host admits to not remembering that the then-widely unknown boyband previously did a show with her.

“I was reading the pre-interview for this — I had no idea that y’all opened for me in 2005. I feel like I just got really cool!"

Nick humbly brushed it off.

“No one cared about us in 2005, we were just coming up and basically, to get other gigs, we listed the other acts that we’d opened up for. But that really just meant that we were on, like, the outside stage in the parking lot while you were playing for 40,000 people. You helped us get a lot of gigs after that, so thank you. We owe you 20 percent."
