Kelly Clarkson is a Simone Biles fan!

The singer and host of The Kelly Clarkson Show, 41, showed her appreciation for the Olympic gymnast in a post shared on Instagram Saturday.

“Look, I would settle for the ability to do a kart wheel like @simonebiles” Clarkson began her caption, which was posted alongside an image of a teary-eyed Biles, 26, holding up her medal after winning women’s all-around gold at the World Gymnastics Championships in Antwerp, Belgium earlier this month.

“She is magnificent!! My gosh, I feel blessed to just get to watch her!” the “Since U Been Gone” crooner concluded her caption.

Back in 2021, Biles and fellow gymnast Jordan Chiles appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show via video call while they were on the Gold Over America Tour.

During her guest appearance, Biles revealed that athletes on the tour warmed up to Clarkson’s song “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).”

The singer then showed the audience a fun clip of the Gold Over America Tour group dancing on stage along to the song while wearing pink workout gear and black zip-up sweaters.

Biles recently shared her delight at having a fifth gymnastics skill named after her in an Instagram post.

“World championships!!!!! Whew Antwerp will always hold a special place in my heart,” the Olympic gymnast began the caption of her post, which was written alongside a series of photos of her in competition and on the medal podium, including the shot posted by Clarkson.

“The first time I got a skill named after me was in this arena & 10 years later I got my 5th skill named….” she continued.

“I’m speechless. I’m honored. I’m excited and I’m blessed! Doing it for the little girl who fell in love with the sport!!!!!” added Biles, before concluding her post by writing, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love & support 🖤.”

After she became the first woman to successfully perform the Yurchenko double pike during the championships earlier this month, the National Governing Board of Gymnastics announced that the skill would be named “Biles II,” meaning the gymnast had received a fifth skill named after her.
