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. It 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. 'Meaning of Life' could mean another Grammy for Kelly Clarkson BY JAY BOBBIN Kelly Clarkson is a nominee in the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, airing Sunday on CBS. February 9 - 15, 2019 2 KINGSPORT (TN) TIMES NEWS cover story this week "I Love Lucy" (CBS, 1951-57) How could any list of shows with "love" in the title not start with one of television's most enduring classics? As friends Fred and Ethel Mertz (William Frawley, Vivian Vance) often looked on, zany Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) often befuddled her nightclub star husband, Ricky (Desi Arnaz, Ball's then-spouse). "The Love Boat" (ABC, 1977-87) "Love, exciting and new ... ." So sang Jack Jones (and, in the final season, Dionne Warwick) in welcoming viewers and guest "passengers" aboard the Pacific Princess, which set sail with a "crew" led by Gavin MacLeod as the captain. "Love, Sidney" (NBC, 1981-83) A great showcase for Tony Randall's talents, this comedy cast him as a New Yorker who provided shelter and "family" for a single mother and her daughter (Swoosie Kurtz, Kaleena Kiff). "Anything but Love" (ABC, 1989- 92) Moderating his stand-up-comedy persona, Richard Lewis proved a good match for Jamie Lee Curtis in the saga of magazine colleagues whose relationship was just platonic ... until Season 3. "Everybody Loves Raymond" (CBS, 1996-2005) When David Letterman was celebrated at the Kennedy Center Honors, Ray Romano touchingly told how Letterman put him under contract to develop a show for him, resulting in this slow-starting but ultimately long-running sitcom about a sportswriter and his often too-close family. "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-11) Arguably the most controversial series yet to use "Love" in its name, this drama cast Bill Paxton as a polygamist and Jeanne Tripplehorn, Ginnifer Goodwin and Chloe Sevigny as his wives. "Love" (Netflix, 2016-18) Gillian Jacobs and series co-creator Paul Rust were painfully perfect as decidedly imperfect people whose budding relationship is riddled with missteps.
