Kelly Clarkson’s hit day-time talk show is getting some TLC after three seasons.

The singer, who hosts “The Kelly Clarkson Show’, will be taking a few weeks off before she takes over Ellen DeGeneres’ primetime afternoon slot.

A source exclusively told Us Weekly, “She will be taking a few weeks off to take the kids on vacation, but will be focused on complete overhaul of her show as she takes over for Ellen.”

Kelly Clarkson’s talk-show will be replacing Ellen’s years-long show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” in NBC’s 3p.m. ET time slot.

On May 26, Ellen’s show will end on May 26.

Kelly’s current show airs just one hour before Ellen’s coveted time slot.

The “American Idol” alum’s show has been renewed until 2023 and is currently in its third season.

No other details surrounding the “overhaul” have been revealed, but given that she just legally changed her name to “Kelly Brianne,” we can guess this may have an impact on the show’s title.

The Blast exclusively reported the name change news.

On Tuesday, March 29, we reported that a Los Angeles Superior Court granted Kelly’s request to legally change her name.

In legal documents obtained by The Blast, the ‘Voice’ coach’s desire to legally change her name to “Kelly Brianne” has been granted!

The singer’s full legal name is Kelly Brianne Clarkson, but it has been legally changed to just Kelly Brianne. It became official in a Superior Court of California on March 28th.

The legal document also states, “The court adopts its tentative ruling as the Order of the Court as follows: There being no objections, the petition for change of name is granted. The Decree is signed and filed. The Petitioner’s name is changed from Kelly Brianne Clarkson to Kelly Brianne.”

Kelly Clarkson Files To Restore Her Famous Name In Ongoing Divorce

The Blast broke the news last month that Kelly wanted to legally change her name following her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

When filing to legally change her name, Clarkson had to give a reason for the name change.

In previous court documents obtained by us, she wrote, “My new name more fully reflects who I am.”

The form was initially filed on February 14th – Valentine’s Day – so it looks like Kelly wants to spend the new year focusing on some self-love.

Speaking of self-love, Clarkson is fully prepared to shower herself with self-love come April 24, her birthdate.

While speaking to People (The TV Show!) on the “America Song Contest” red carpet on Monday night, the songstress dished on the upcoming celebration.

When it comes to turning 40, Clarkson is stronger than ever.

"I'm not concerned about it," the singer said. "My life gets exponentially better each year. Which is what should happen, you should get wiser."

She continued, "I'm really excited. Everything's in a good place now."

Given the monumental birthday, the “Kelly Clarkson Show” host is ready to do a “whole thing.”

"I was gonna go low key and then, I just had a really fun time with my girlfriends in San Francisco," she said. "So, I'm like, maybe I'll do that again."
