  • Kelly Clarkson is sporting an eye patch during this week’s episode of The Voice.

  • Kelly explained that she’s using an eye patch because she got an eye infection while filming a segment for the show.

IDK if you knew this, but Kelly Clarkson loooves to accessorize. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, decked-out face masks—you name it, Kelly has worn it. But as of, like…yesterday, Kelly added a new one to her arsenal: a black eye patch.

Naturally, people started wondering why Kelly sported this patch during an episode of The Voice. Lucky for fans, Kelly provided a very clear answer.

“So obviously today you’re going to notice something different about me. I feel like I could be a really great supervillain. Something got in my eye and it got a little infected, so I have to wear an eye patch,” Kelly said in an episode preview for The Voice. She elevated her look with red lipstick, gold hoops, and a black T-shirt to match.

Kelly shared the clip to her Twitter page and joked in the caption, “Instead of Coach Kelly for the battle rounds…y’all get Captain Kelly.”

If the patch looks a lil familiar, that’s because Kelly wore it back in September during The Kelly Clarkson Show. (The patch is making a reappearance now because The Voice is prerecorded.)

Kelly explained the patch back then too, elaborating a little bit more about how the infection came about. “We did this long shoot for The Voice and I was up in this window. These buildings out here on the Universal lot are all dusty and I’m highly allergic to dust. Well, something had gotten in my eye…and maybe cut it, did something,” she told NBC L.A. at the time. “It got infected.…When it first happened, it was so puffy. I was like, ‘What am I supposed to do?’”

Sincerely hoping Kelly’s eye is alright now!
