Chatting in a Q&A about the NBC series prior to its premiere, Kelly was asked whether she would be wowing the crowds with any performances throughout the series, to which she replied: "Oh, well, I don't think this is about me this time around.

"I perform five days a week on television if you want to see a song. I'm second-guessing that idea, by the way, from my talk show."


The award-winning star has a great fashion sense

She continued: "I perform quite a bit but, this, probably not because this isn't about me. This is about all of these other artists.
