(CNN)Kelly Clarkson knows how to start a talk show with a bang — well, a scream.
“Live on tape from Universal Studios in Hollywood, ladies and gentleman, ahhhhh, Kelly Clarkson,” Carell screamed.
His bellow of Clarkson’s name comes from a scene in the film where his character gets his chest waxed and screams the “American Idol” winner’s name in pain.
Carell’s cameo was not announced prior to the show’s airing. So, if this brings you half as much joy as it seemed to bring the audience, happy Monday.
“The Kelly Clarkson” show airs weekdays in syndication.
