During the season finale of NBC’s American Song Contest, hosts Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg kicked off the show with performances of their own songs, “Whole Lotta Woman” and “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” respectively.
In a surprise move, Clarkson joined Snoop Dogg on stage at the end of “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” and riffed, bringing her stellar vocals to the energetic performance. That move sparked conversations about possible future collaborations.
Clarkson reflected on the show’s opening number with Snoop Dogg, telling E! Red Carpet & Awards Shows that it was “such a cool dream for all of us to just be on stage with him performing. He’s so rad and seriously just like the coolest guy ever and such a gentleman. I would love to work with him.”
During an interview with Extra’s Rachel Lindsay, Clarkson revealed that she has a dream of recording a duet with Snoop Dogg. When Lindsay asked if going into the studio was the next step for the hosts, Clarkson said, “I don’t know if that’s his dream, but that’s my dream!” Snoop Dogg chimed in, “We’re going to make that happen, you understand? We’re just too talented, it’s going to happen.”
Singer AleXa from Oklahoma was crowned the winner of the inaugural season of American Song Contest with her song “Wonderland.”
The music competition show is based on the Eurovision Song Contest to find the best original song from every U.S. state and territory.
