Kelly Clarkson's talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, has been a hit for the NBCUniversal network for the entirety of its four season run, and it's building up to a big change.

The show has, over its past seasons, filmed its premiere weeks in New York City while maintaining a consistent production schedule in Hollywood for the rest.

However, for its upcoming fifth installment, the show will be switching gears and moving production for the entirety of the season to the Big Apple.

According to Variety, an NBCUniversal spokesperson has confirmed that the show will move filming to 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the home of some of the network's most beloved shows such as its late night fare and Saturday Night Live.

In fact, the network is going all out for its move, with an impressive new studio space to be built for the show, which will film in its iconic Studio 6A.

The shift might represent a big change personally for the 41-year-old as well, who juggles professional commitments in Los Angeles with her idyllic home life with kids River, eight, and Remington, six, shared with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

While Kelly has spent large chunks of time in New York in the past, this would represent a more significant move to the city from her Texas roots.

The announcement comes on the heels of a big sweep for the show, which picked up 11 nods for the upcoming Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony.

It was revealed that the show had picked up two main nominations for Outstanding Daytime Talk Series and Outstanding Daytime Talk Series Host for the singer, her fourth in a row since the NBC show's 2019 premiere.

Where it really shone, however, was the Creative Arts and Lifestyle categories, picking up nine nods, the most this year, including camera editing, hairstyling & makeup, and direction.
