Kelly Clarkson is headed to Vegas!

The original "American Idol" champ will perform her own Las Vegas residency, "Kelly Clarkson: Invincible," starting in April 2020. The singer — and a group of colorful Sin City showgirls — announced the news Friday on "The Kelly Clarkson Show."

"I have a major announcement to make today," Clarkson gushed. "I’ve scored my very own residency in Las Vegas. 'Kelly Clarkson: Invincible' debuts April 1 — it’s not an April Fools' joke, but it does debut April 1 at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino."

The "Voice" judge shared the exciting update during the "Kellyoke" segment of her show, right after singing a medley of her own hits. "I usually don't like doing (my own songs) during 'Kellyoke' because I feel like a tool — but today there's a reason, so I did it," she said.

Apparently, Clarkson plans to hit Planet Hollywood's casino during her downtime in Vegas.

"Not only am I getting to perform, I’m gonna get to play all the 'Wheel of Fortune' slots, which is really my reason for going there," she joked.

"The gambling, the shows, the all-you-can-eat buffet and crab legs, I love all of it," the singer added before giving tickets to her residency to everyone in her studio audience.

Clarkson's Vegas show will be "a one-of-a-kind up-close music experience that rocks through her nearly two-decade-long catalog of award-winning smash hits," according to a press release.

She'll perform a total of 16 shows from April to September 2020.

"I've always loved performing in Las Vegas and the high energy of the crowds there," the Grammy winner said in a statement. "So many of my musical idols have had, and still have, incredible residencies on The Strip, and I'm so excited to create my own!"
