Kelly Clarkson just channeled her inner Ghostbuster with the newest Kellyoke karaoke segment on her show. Clarkson brought the spookiness to her daytime talk show just in time for Halloween, decked out in complete Ghostbuster gear just like in the classic ’80s film. Best of all? The performance is complete with choreography as well and audience participation.
Both Clarkson and her backup dancers donned classic tan Ghostbusters jumpsuits with proton packs that Clarkson later revealed are official costumes from the upcoming sequel, Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Kelly Clarkson performs classic ‘Ghostbusters’ hit in Kellyoke segment
“Well, as you can see, I am one of the newest members of the elite team of Ghostbusters,” Clarkson said after her spookified performance. “You’re welcome, Ghostbusters, I am quite the addition.”
“I’m sweating, I’m getting ripe in this and they’re not going to want it back, so I’m going to be able to keep it… It’s real sweaty and gross up in here!”
The classic ’80s song has a special family connection for Clarkson
The Ghostbusters theme sung by Ray Parker Jr. has a special family connection for Clarkson. She admits that it’s her 5-year-old Remington’s favorite song at the moment. “I have to play it before bed almost every night. He makes me play the video, the Ray Parker video. Not a joke, really loves it,” she reveals. “Don’t even think he’s seen ‘Ghostbusters.’ He’s 5. I don’t think he’s going to see this new one, but he just loves the song, thinks it’s cool.”
Hudson is slated to return as Winston in the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts will also be reprising their original roles. The sequel film is slated for a November 19th release.
