YouTube/Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy FallonAmerican Idol winner and Voice coach, Kelly Clarkson sat down for a bit of chit-chat before Jimmy Fallon presented this nearly-impossible challenge to her.

These two pop culture personalities have known each other for more than a decade and their comedic wit is almost unrivaled as they get into some of the most-hysterical banter just before talking about Clarkson’s newest project, at the time, as a coach on The Voice.

Clarkson revealed what it’s like to battle for a contestant with Blake Shelton on the hit singing competition, and says that her fellow coaches all brag about winning on the show – but her response silenced them all.

“And they’re always quick to point out that they’ve all won,” Clarkson says laughing, and getting in a jab about her taking home the first American Idol win, adding, “And I’m like ‘So have I!'”

She ended up proving herself, and winning three out of her first four seasons as a coach.

Next, Fallon brought up her mastery of music, nudging her by saying “I’m sure you’ve sung all your songs forward and backward.”

He then proceeded to convince Clarkson to sing one of her number one hits completely backward in front of the audience – and she didn’t back down from the challenge!
