Kelly Clarkson showed off her slender new figure again on Thursday.
The country singer wore a stunning, low-cut black dress that was very flattering as the star added high heels while on her daytime talk show.
The American Idol veteran exuded body confidence just months after she began losing weight.
She also flashed a gold cross ring on her wedding finger three years after splitting from husband Brandon Blackstock.
And the 41-year-old host posed happily with her guests for the day: astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and the musician Bernie Taupin.
‘Today’s Kelly is out of this WORLD! Tune in for the fun with our fav astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and the legendary Bernie Taupin PLUS an unseen moment from Alanis Songs & Stories!’ the caption on her show’s Instagram account.

Kelly appeared to enjoy her chat with DeGrasse, who said he was a male dancer while studying astrophysics. ‘I was cut, I was flexible, I could do a full split…’ he shared.
And he said he almost worked at a male strip club, but decided against it when he saw the dancers light their jockstraps on fire onstage.
He then scared Kelly with a recent scientific discovery that showed there’s a chance an asteroid will collide with Earth in 160 years.
Tyson brought the images of the James Webb Space Telescope — including exploding stars, the Pillars of God, and Jupiter like you’ve never seen it before — to her show with an immersive green screen space experience.
Neil also shared how his new documentary Shot in the Arm is fighting anti-science thinking, and dished on his new book To Infinity and Beyond.
Taupin shared a hilarious story from his new memoir Scattershot, about the night he, Freddie Mercury and Billie Jean King were caught in the middle of a fight at a drag bar in early ’70s in New York City.

And Kelly was joined by Alanis Morissette to sing Uninvited.
In a never-before-seen moment from Kelly’s interview with Morissette last month, Alanis shared how she wrote her iconic song Uninvited for the City of Angels movie soundtrack in just 15 minutes.
Clarkson has lost a lot of weight and she seems to be very proud of it.
The star has slimmed down after making ‘better life choices’ in the wake of her messy divorce and brutal custody battle from Brandon Blackstock, DailyMail.com shared exclusively last week.
She unveiled her shocking weight loss transformation in early October and has been flaunting her curves on her talk show.
The slim-down fueled speculation that she had turned to surgery – or the new celebrity favorite, Ozempic – to shed the pounds.
Kelly has yet to publicly address her transformation, but a source has insisted that she will speak openly with fans if she has used Ozempic.

‘If she were to have taken Ozempic, or if she were to take it in the future, she would be the first person to share that with the world,’ they said.
‘She wouldn’t keep that a secret. She is very transparent and real, and that is the person she always has been. Kelly doesn’t BS anyone.’
Her divorce, relocating from Los Angeles to New York City, and wanting to be ‘healthier’ for her children – River Rose, nine, and Remington Alexander, seven – are all thought to be behind her decision to focus on her well-being.
According to a source close to Kelly (pictured left in March 2022), she likely had ‘a little nudge from somewhere’
‘She is now in New York, and the stresses of divorce and those who talked about the toxic work environment at her show have really taken all the toll they could, and now her well-being and health are more of a focus for her and that improvement is now happening,’ the source continued.
‘She is making better life decisions and making decisions that are right for her and her family.
‘Now that she is a single mom, she wants to be healthy for her kids and be around for a long time, so just like everything else, she has maintained her new life and her weight with a structure of doing things the old-fashioned way, through hard work.’
Kelly first flaunted her new figure on Instagram on Saturday as she prepared for an appearance on Jimmy Fallon.

Predictably, fans were quick to comment on the sizzling new snap, with many questioning if she had used Ozempic – a medication used to treat type 2 Diabetes but also has a weight loss side effect.
Celebrities including 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 form while attending the We Can Survive concert in support of mental health awareness on October 14.
In 2020 she admitted that she felt ‘more pressure’ in the music industry when she was thin.
The Since U Been Gone singer said that she used to be shown naked magazine covers of women and told ‘this is what you’re competing with.’
‘I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, ‘This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.’ I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are,’ she told Glamour UK.
Kelly and her ex, Brandon, were married for seven years before they split in 2020, setting off a protracted bout of legal squabbling over money.
The divorce dragged on for a year and a half before it was ultimately finalized in March of 2022. It led to a brutal custody fight between the exes, with Clarkson eventually securing primary custody.
Kelly released a bitter break-up album earlier this year called Chemistry that 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 out of the Big Apple.
