Kelly Clarkson Did the ALS Hot Pepper Challenge and Quoted Carrie Underwood While Having a Total Meltdown


Over the last few years, several challenges have gone viral on social media to raise awareness for ALS– remember the ice bucket challenge? The best.

Now, the ALS Hot Pepper Challenge is going around, and several of our favorite celebrities have already accepted the challenge. Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks did it, and Trisha nominated Kelly Clarkson— and y’all, the video of her completing the challenge is honestly hilarious.

She stalls for a bit at the beginning of the video, joking that she hates Trisha Yearwood for nominating her, saying she’s never even had a habanero pepper before. She takes tiny bite of the pepper and instantly regrets it. “My eyes are cryin’!!,” she yells as she wipes away tears. “I can’t stand you, Trisha Yearwood!”

While trying to get herself together she also quoted Carrie Underwood and said, “Jesus, take the wheel.”

When she was finally able to compose herself, she nominated her fellow “The Voice” coaches, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Alicia Keys– and we cannot wait to see if they come through.
