New coach Kelly Clarkson once again found unexpected passions stirring on Tuesday’s episode of The Voice.
The Since U Been Gone star had earlier praised how sexy co-star Alicia Keys is, admitting: ‘I am married, but I’m telling you what, if I liked women, I’d like Alicia.’
But Kelly, 35, has found a new target for her feelings, gushing over contestant Christiana Danielle and telling her: ‘I’m in love with you!
‘I said I would go for Alicia — but I would go for you.’
Her strong feelings were clear even before Christiana had finished her Live Playoffs performance of Hozier’s Take Me To Church, with Kelly on her feet and almost blushing as she covered her face with her hands and told Alicia: ‘I love her!’
She was so moved she even made a faux pas as a judge, making it clear Christiana is her favorite — even though she is not on her team but on main rival Alicia’s.
‘I probably shouldn’t say what I’m about to say, but literally I think you might be the greatest person on this show,’ Kelly admitted.
‘I love my team — my team is flawless, I love my team — I just mean if I’m looking at anybody on anybody’s team you are so the one to beat. You are ridiculous — I’m in love with you.’
As she continued gushing, Kelly joked: ‘I sound like a stage five clinger, it’s fine, but I love her Alicia.’
Not to be outdone, Alicia also found new heights of hyperbole for her team member, calling Christiana a ‘goddess descended upon the earth’ with a ‘one-of-a-kind voice.’
