The 2017 American Music Awards have some pretty stellar performances scheduled. And while we鈥檙e excited to witness Selena Gomez take the stage for the first time since her kidney transplant, Kelly Clarkson is fangirling over another planned set: her very own duet with Pink!

鈥淥h my gosh, I鈥檓 so excited,鈥 Clarkson told Entertainment Tonight, revealing that although the two are set to open the show together, they鈥檝e never even formally met.

She added, 鈥淚 think we met in passing, like, quickly on the Today show right after I won American Idol, like, 15 years ago [in 2002]. But we didn鈥檛 really talk. She was talking to Justin [Guarini] because they鈥檙e both from Philly, and I guess went to the same school [Central Bucks]. So I didn鈥檛 really get to talk to her then.鈥

They might not be IRL friends (yet!), but the 鈥淟ove So Soft鈥 singer said that she has always been a 鈥渉uge fan鈥 of her contemporary and feels like they have a lot in common. 鈥淚 think, honestly, at the end of the day, even though we鈥檙e different artists, at the core, we both love great singers, we both love soulful music. She鈥檚 branched out just like me, in like the singer-songwriter kinda country stuff or rock 鈥榥鈥 roll. We both love a lot of the same things.鈥

She continued, 鈥淚 think, too, just the level of respect that comes with that, the admiration. Even though we are different, we do have a lot of similarities. I鈥檝e been really excited about doing this with her.鈥

She echoed that same sentiment on Twitter, saying, 鈥淕onna play it super cool whilst singing with @Pink this Sunday at the #AMAs 鈥.but know on the inside I will be freaking the &$@! out 馃槵 #oneofthegreatestvocalistsofourgeneration #sheissorad #sundayissofarfromnow鈥

Pink replied right back, 鈥淵ou鈥檙e joking! I am humbly prepared to be outsung:) I adore you and I cannot wait.鈥

You can definitely add us to the list of people who are super psyched for their duet on Sunday.

Clarkson, who recently joined The Voice, told ET that teaming up with Pink makes her a little nostalgic for her days growing up in Fort Worth, Texas, when she would watch her own idols come together. 鈥淲hen I was a kid, I remember anytime two big singers would get together that people were fans of鈥 I remember, like, Mariah and Whitney Houston did it. I mean, not that we鈥檙e Mariah and Whitney,鈥 she said with a laugh, 鈥渂ut just for our generation, being two popular females with popular music.鈥 Oh, we get it and we love it!

However, the 35-year-old was also sure to point out, 鈥淭he sad thing is, a lot of times people pit us against each other. And that happened right before our records came out. They鈥檙e like, 鈥榃ho鈥檚 going to top each other?鈥 I was like, 鈥榃hy can鈥檛 we both just be successful?鈥 It鈥檚 just one of those things where, I feel like they don鈥檛 do that to men. So, it鈥檚 really cool that Pink and I get this opportunity to show people like, 鈥楬ey! Everybody can be successful, there鈥檚 plenty of talent to go around, plenty of love to go around.鈥 We鈥檙e all different, but at the same time, we all love music and that鈥檚 why we鈥檙e here.鈥

We couldn鈥檛 agree more! And we can鈥檛 wait to see these two take the stage together this Sunday, November 19, when the 2017 American Music Awards kick off.
