Despite being a three-time Grammy winner, having nine top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 and too many other accolades to count, Kelly Clarkson still gets starstruck. She did just that on the Tuesday (Jan. 9) episode of her namesake talkshow after having the privilege to perform with Frasier star Kelsey Grammer for her opening Kellyoke segment.
The episode kicked off with the pair singing the Frasier theme song “Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs,” which is performed by Grammer in NBC’s original 1993-2004 Cheers spin-off as well as in the 2023 Paramount+ revival. Backed by Clarkson’s band Y’all, the pair took turns on the verses, with Grammer completing the track’s big finish.
“Hey baby, I hear the blues a-callin’/ Tossed salads and scrambled eggs,” the pop star sang against a backdrop of jazzy instrumentals.
“And maybe I seem a bit confused/ Yeah maybe, but I got you pegged!/ But I don’t know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs/ Life’s callin’ again/ Scambled eggs all over my face/ What is a boy to do,” the pair harmonized on the last few lines.
After a round of applause, Clarkson extended her thank yous to the crowd and to Grammer, who first played psychiatrist Frasier Crane on TV as a recurring character on Cheers in 1984 and became a series regular in 1986.
“Thank you for jamming with me. This is like a dream come true for me, y’all,” Clarkson said. “That was the theme song from his new series Frasier, which is a reboot of literally possibly — that’s a top two show for me of all time. Frasier is one of my favorites. You have no idea. I’m freaking out right now.”
