Fans seemed to like Kelly’s way of showing off her toned and slim legs.
A follower posted a meme of SpongeBob SquarePants with toned and long legs in the comments section.
And a fan from Los Angeles shared: ‘Amazing legs! She’s never looked so good.’ Another said: ‘Those legs!’
Then there was a follower who was just generally raving: “You’re absolutely adorable my favorite queen Kelly, that’s why I love you more every day .”
The daytime talk show host added gold hoop earrings and rings. Her shoes were nude pumps.
Garth wore a blue denim shirt and black cap as he pulled out his guitar and played a song for Clarkson as they sat on the couches.
The TV presenter has never looked better.

Kelly has not yet publicly discussed her transformation, but a source has insisted she will speak openly to fans if she has used Ozempic.
“If she took Ozempic, or if she took it in the future, she would be the first person to share it with the world,” they said.
‘She wouldn’t want to keep that a secret. She’s very transparent and real, and that’s the person she’s always been. Kelly BS no one.”
Her divorce, move from Los Angeles to New York City and a desire to be “healthier” for her children – River Rose, nine, and Remington Alexander, seven – are all believed to be behind her decision to focus on to focus on her well-being.
“She’s in New York now, and the stress of the divorce and those who spoke about the toxic work environment on her show really took all the toll they could, and now her well-being and health are more of a focus for her and that improvement is happening now,” the source continued.
“She’s making better life decisions and making decisions that are right for her and her family.
According to a source close to Kelly (pictured left in March 2022), she probably had ‘a little push in the back somewhere’
“Now that she’s a single mom, she wants to be healthy for her kids and stay with them for a long time, so like everything else, she’s been managing her new life and her weight with a structure for doing things the old-fashioned way. way, through hard work.’
Kelly showed off her new figure for the first time on Instagram on Saturday as she prepared for a performance on Jimmy Fallon.
Predictably, fans were quick to comment on the sizzling new snap, with many wondering if she had been taking Ozempic – a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes but also has a weight loss side effect.
Celebrities like Sharon Osbourne, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer have all used Ozempic.
Kelly, who won the first season of American Idol in 2002, also showed off her slimmed-down figure while attending the We Can Survive concert in support of mental health awareness on Oct. 14.

In 2020, she admitted that she felt “more pressure” in the music industry when she was skinny.
The Since U Been Gone singer said she was shown naked magazine covers of women and said, “This is what you’re competing with.”
‘I felt more pressure. It was more like magazines shoved in your face and, “This is what you’re competing with and we have to compete with that.” I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my view. That’s not who I am. They are,” she said Glamor Britain.
Kelly and her ex, Brandon, were married for seven years before splitting in 2020, sparking a lengthy legal wrangling over money.
The divorce lasted a year and a half before it was finally finalized in March 2022. It led to a brutal custody battle between the exes, with Clarkson ultimately securing primary custody.
Kelly released a bitter breakup album earlier this year called Chemistry, which detailed the “good, the bad and the ugly” of her relationship with Brandon.
She recently moved to New York City with their children for a “fresh start” and will now host her self-titled talk show from the Big Apple.
