"I love Broadway, I grew up in musical theatre so that's the only acting I'm good at, no other kind!" Singer Kelly Clarkson is interested in landing a role in a Broadway musical. She previously tested her acting skills in flop 2003 movie From Justin to Kelly, which she reluctantly shot as part of her contract after winning TV talent show American Idol.
NBC/The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Kelly + Jimmy is the hottest new singing duo, it's official. Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy and Kelly Clarkson united to sing some incredible duets, in promotion of Kelly's new album, Piece by Piece.
Apparently, Kelly has been having a hard time finding someone to sing duets with her and Jimmy was more than willing to help out a friend. And thus "History of Duets", much like the famous "History of Rap" starring Justin Timberlake, was born. We think the future of duets now belongs to Kelly + Jimmy.
Watch Jimmy and Kelly sing some of the most popular duets in musical history:
We think their rendition of "Endless Love" was the perfect choice to end this one. Which song was your fave? Tweet us your answers!

"I cried for a solid hour on the phone with the creator of American Idol and pleaded to be let out of the contract that said I had to film From Justin to Kelly." Kelly Clarkson really didn't want to be involved in her flop post-Idol movie.
Pop star Lance Bass married his fiance in a star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday night (20Dec14). The former 'N Sync singer wed his longtime partner Michael Turchin at the Park Plaza Hotel in front of 300 guests, while actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler officiated the ceremony with Once Upon A Time star JoAnna Garcia Swisher.
Other guests included his former 'N Sync bandmates JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick - Justin Timberlake was unable to attend as he is away on tour.
The couple's first dance was held to a rendition of Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling in Love by Chasez, while R&B star Kelly Price also performed. The grooms were given away by their mothers, and members of the wedding party walked the couple's dogs down the aisle.
A host of superstars including Beyonce, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake headed to Taylor Swift's New York apartment on Friday (12Dec14) to celebrate her 25th birthday. The Shake It Off hitmaker kickstarted her day of celebrations by picking up the Woman of the Year accolade at the Billboard Women In Music luncheon, where Icon of the Year honouree Aretha Franklin serenaded her with a rendition of Happy Birthday.
She then headed to radio station Z100's annual Jingle Ball in the Big Apple gig, where she performed, before heading back to her luxury pad to host her star-studded party.
Swift decided not to change out of her plaid two-piece stage costume for the bash, where guests enjoyed pizza, Japanese food and beers while wearing novelty headwear and posing for pictures.
Snaps from the party show Beyonce, Jay Z and Timberlake joining Swift, singer Sam Smith, model Karlie Kloss and sibling rockers Haim in a variety of comedy poses. In one image, Timberlake is shown wearing a hat, shaped like the emoticon for a pile of excrement, over his face, while Beyonce dons furry antlers.
Other guests at the event included Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, model Chrissy Teigen, actors Ansel Elgort and Jaime King, Kelly Osbourne and Charli XCX.
Following the party, Swift took to Twitter.com to write, "I just want to thank anyone who wished me happiness today. You're my friend. These are my friends. And I'm so lucky."
