'Meaning of Life' could mean another Grammy for Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson has one Grammy nomination this year, and to her, it's the one that really counts. Now a coach on "The Voice," the first "American Idol" is up for best pop vocal album for "Meaning of Life" at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, which someone else with a "Voice" connection – Alicia Keys – will host from Los Angeles' Staples Center in a live-across-the-country CBS broadcast Sunday, Feb. 10. "When I started making this album, this literally was my goal," friendly three-time Grammy winner Clarkson admits of her current bid. "I love dancing, but I don't do lots of choreography or pyrotechnics, so my (live) show is about musicianship and about the singer. Whenever I make an album, I want it to be really solid vocally, so it's always my favorite thing when I get nominated for it. "I know most artists want album of the year or record of the year," adds Clarkson, "and those are awesome and really incredible, but it's always amazing to get a vocal nomination when you're really striving for it. So much has been going on, I forgot when it was even being announced, but I'm very excited about it." Others up for the best pop vocal album Grammy include Camila Cabello (for "Camila"), Ariana Grande ("Sweetener"), Shawn Mendes' (for his eponymous "Shawn Mendes"), Pink ("Beautiful Trauma") and Taylor Swift ("Reputation"). Clarkson is encouraging appreciation of everyone in the category – and, for that matter, the entire event – no matter who wins. "It's hard to compare me and Shawn Mendes, or me and Kendrick Lamar," she reflects. "I think people get into this competitive thing that says, 'This person's better because they won.' Well ... no. I've been in the same category with the Beatles and Bonnie Raitt before and won, so it has nothing to do with who's best. I t just happens to be that the moment is that person's moment, for whatever reason." Married mom Clarkson is anticipating potentially her busiest year yet: Her Meaning of Life Tour launched recently and continues through March; her third season on NBC's "The Voice" starts later this month; she's in the voice cast of this May's animated movie "UglyDolls"; and her syndicated weekday talk show debuts this fall. "We took the longest vacation I've taken in a very long time for Christmas and New Year's," Clarkson says, "and my family and I were all talking about how huge 2018 was. Then my husband and I started going over the schedule for 2019, and I was like, 'Wait a minute. I think 2019 might kick 2018's a... !' It's a big year, and a lot of goals are being accomplished, which is really cool." Kelly Clarkson is a nominee in the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, airing Sunday on CBS.
