Kelly Clarkson and Dolly Parton rocked the soundstage on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” The powerhouse singers combined their vocal prowess for a legendary duet “9 to 5” during rehearsals for the November 30 episode. In between Kellyoke takes, the duo went over the details of their performance and discussed who would take over certain harmonies. At one point, Parton unexpectedly sang a lyric of hers, filling Clarkson with so much emotion that she ran offstage, waving her hands in the air. “Get your butt over here,” Parton said into the microphone.

“We had to pull out all the stops.”

Clarkson previously shared the official audio of her duet “9 to 5” with Parton, which appears in the documentary “Still Working 9 to 5” that premiered in March. The film reunited Parton, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dabney Coleman from the original 1980 film, as well as Rita Moreno from the television adaptation of the film, and Allison Janney from the Broadway musical.

Parton and Clarkson’s duet Kellyoke, which will officially air on December 1, is a combination of their version of the documentary and Parton’s original version of the song. “We had to go all out,” said Jason Halbert, music producer and keyboardist for local talk show band Y’all. He added: “We brought in a horn section. We recreated the typewriter sound from the original version. It’s a really fun song to play and a cool part of the story.” [We] I couldn’t be more excited.”

At the end of rehearsals, Clarkson and the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famer shared a happy hug, congratulating each other on a job well done. See above for the incredible “9 to 5” essay from the music icons.
