LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Carol Burnett was pleased to have spent time together with Kelly Clarkson on her show. The legendary actress-comedian turned 90 on Wednesday, April 26, and the duo performed a heartwarming duet version of her celebrated 'The Carol Burnett Show' sign-off song 'So Long' with Clarkson. The clip was shared by the NBC talk show ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’’s YouTube channel, where Burnett and the Grammy winner sat together crooning the familiar lyrics of the song. The 90-year-old’s show was on air between 1967 and 1978.

"I'm so glad we had this time together/ Just to have a laugh or sing a song/ Seems we just get started and before you know it / Comes the time we have to say, 'So long,'" as they both tuned in. They continued to hit the note, "There's a time you put aside for dreaming / And a time for things you have to do / But the time I like the best is any evening I can spend a moment here with you."

'Do you miss anything?'

Clarkson, who also hails from Texas, asked Burnett on moving to Hollywood, "Do you miss anything? Cause you were young when you moved to Hollywood." "It was back in the covered wagon days," joked Burnett before adding "I went to Davy Crockett grammar school in San Antonio. He was alive then." (She was joking again — the former Texas politician died in 1836) reports People.

Clarkson's next album 'Clarkson' will release in June

Burnett finally gave a straight answer to Clarkson's question and said, “That's the first food I remember eating — enchiladas," she said, talking about missing Tex-Mex, local cuisine in the state. Clarkson recently performed the live debut of her new single ‘Mine’ on her show. Her studio album 'Chemistry' is also slated to release in June. Talking about her inspiration for the song after the performance, the 40-year-old shared, “I don't really need to explain it because the lyrics are pretty self-evident. I was feeling all the feelings when I wrote that one."

'Chemistry' will be Clarkson’s first album post-separation from her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. The duo shares a seven-year-old son Remington ‘Remy’ Alexander and an eight-year-old daughter River Rose.
