Finally, a friendship that can compete with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine!
Ariana Grande and Kelly Clarkson have made a solid case for themselves as The Voice's new dynamic combination since joining the competition this season. Ari and Kelly appear to be inseparable, from killing their "Respect" duet to raving over one other's "wonderful" singing.
Their infatuation with each other appears to be nothing new. Kelly recently stated that she and Ariana fangirled over each other eight years before they co-hosted The Voice.
Kelly shared an image of one of her September 2013 tweets, which stated, "Okay, who is this chick and where did she come from?! Someone just gave me this, and wow, she's a killer, and she's just 19!"
"omg that's me hello Kelly Clarkson thank you ily," the "positions" artist (who had just ended her time on Victorious) answered the next day.
While it's difficult to picture Ariana Grande before she became the A-lister she is today, hindsight is always 20/20. So, in 2021, Kelly re-shared a screenshot of the conversation, knowing what she does today. "How it Began vs. How It's Going," she commented with a photo of them on set. "I adore this gal, you guys! Did I mention she'll appear on my upcoming Christmas album?"
Ari jumped on the love train, saying, "Oh my goodness, this post." She posted another remark, "I'm overjoyed! I adore you! Thank you so much for having me."
This duo's fans are already drooling over them. "Kelliana forever," one person remarked, while another stated, "this warms my heart."
Ari appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show earlier this month, when they basically raved over one other. The host described her as "funny as heck."
"But this is the coolest thing about you," Kelly said. "My eye makeup has to be redone backstage. She's literally hysterical. She's hilarious. Extremely quick-witted. I have no idea about this about you."
"You all made me feel so comfortable and are the kindest people," Ari later told her.
She may be reconsidering her decision after getting this scathing text from Blake.
