Demi Lovato and Kelly Clarkson… Two artists who are considered to have some of the biggest voices in pop music are bound to collaborate in the near future! That is — if one of them gets their wishes met.

Demi Lovato recently stopped by SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live, where they discussed a desire to combine vocals with Kelly Clarkson.

“I’ve never worked with Kelly Clarkson,” Lovato shared with host Cohen while on the radio show. “And I love her so much. I grew up idolizing her.”

Demi Lovato even admitted that her fandom for Kelly Clarkson went as far as creating a personal email address when they were younger, which was: “littlekelly@yahoo.com with some numbers.”

Powerhouse Vocalists

Indeed, a duet between Lovato, 30, and Clarkson, 41, would be a big deal considering both stars are powerhouse vocalists. Clarkson holds the title as the original American Idol winner, while Lovato has a vocal range that spans almost 4 octaves.

Interestingly, Lovato and Clarkson have already been in talks about a potential collaboration. But they have yet to see it through. With Lovato bringing the idea back to the forefront, perhaps a duet between the two artists will come sooner rather than later. 

“It would be a life goal,” Lovato said of their dreams to sing with the “Since U Been Gone” songstress adding, “We just have to find the right song. We’ve definitely talked about it in the past. So, it’s not in the works, but it’s a high possibility. It’s just like finding the right song that the both of us can belt on would be dope.”

Previously Performed Together In 2011

Lovato and Clarkson may not have released a recorded vocal duet yet, but they are no strangers to working in close corners.

According to PEOPLE, in 2011, they performed on stage together as part of Z100’s Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden in New York, singing a version of the classic Christmas song, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” That song was later recorded by Clarkson as a solo track for her 2013 holiday album, Wrapped in Red.

Clarkson and Lovato each have a long track record of duetting with other artists. Some of Clarkson’s previous collaborations include “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Jason Aldean, “In The Basement” with Martina McBride, “Keeping Score” with Dan + Shay, “PrizeFighter” with Trisha Yearwood, “YOU’RE DRUNK, GO HOME” with Kelsea Ballerini and Carly Pearce, and others. Meanwhile, Lovato has collaborated on “Fall in Line” with Christina Aguilera, “I’m Ready” with Sam Smith, “Met Him Last Night” with Ariana Grande, “One and the Same” with Selena Gomez, and more.
