Kelly Clarkson Reveals Which of Her Kids Are Determined to be Famous on 'UglyDolls' Red Carpet (Exclusive)

The singer and 'Voice' coach opened up to ET about her kids, who joined her on the star-studded red carpet on Saturday.

Kelly Clarkson knows how to turn a red carpet premiere into an adorable family outing.

The singer hit the red carpet at the premiere of her new animated family comedy UglyDolls at the Regal Cinemas at L.A. Live on Saturday, where she was joined by her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and their four children.

The Voice coach, who shined bright in a hot pink Siriano gown, was all smiles as she posed for photos alongside her 17-year-old daughter, Savannah, 17, 12-year-old son, Seth, 4-year-old daughter, River, and 3-year-old son, Remington.


Speaking with ET's Nischelle Turner, Clarkson admitted that, while she was overjoyed to have her kids with her at the star-studded premiere, it did present its own share of challenges.

"Man, that was hard to navigate a red carpet with two toddlers," Clarkson said with a laugh. "That's not for the faint [of heart]."

However, the singer couldn't hide her joy when she explained how well-prepared her little girl, River, was for being in the spotlight.

"This was the greatest thing. [When we got here] we said to her, 'Now don't be freaked out. When we get on the red carpet, they're gonna be yelling mommy's name. Don't get freaked out. Just keep smiling," Clarkson recalled. "And what she got from that was, 'Why are they only screaming your name?'... she was like, 'Why aren't they screaming my name?'"

"I thought, 'Oh my god, the foreshadowing is scary,'" she added with a laugh.

As it turns out, Clarkson is already getting herself ready for when her kids start wanting to branch out and make names for themselves in the public eye.

"[River] and our 12-year-old boy just love doing stuff like this," Clarkson said. "Our oldest and youngest are kinda like, 'We're good,' but our middle two, they love it."

The singer also opened up about her new animated family film, in which she got the chance to record a song with Janelle Monae, which is something she'd been looking forward to for some time.

"I was very excited. I'm a big fan of hers. And not only her music, she's just like good vibes, good spiritual vibes. Good inclusive vibes," Clarkson marveled. "I love her."

Unfortunately for Clarkson, she wasn't able to get a chance to actually be with Monae when they recorded the song.

"We didn't actually get to go in the studio together! Because I was touring and she was doing something else, so we could never meet up," Clarkson recalled. "So we recorded the song together, but weren't even in the studio together!"

Hopefully they'll be able to find a way to perform together sometime in the future, because that's the kind of musical collaboration the world needs more of.

ET recently spoke with Clarkson while promoting UglyDolls, and she revealed how she accidentally ruined Disney's Frozen -- and really all animated movies -- for her youngest daughter.

"I pretty much crushed her dreams," Clarkson said. "I was explaining to her, because she was confused, and I said, 'It's my voice. Like, you know, how Elsa and Anna, there's a person that plays Elsa and Anna?' And I didn't get what I was doing!"
