The Oscar winner's turn as Mary Louise in Season 2 of the HBO drama made quite the impression.

Already renewed for a second season, it reflects everything we love about the Grammy winner and popular coach on The Voice: First, she can sing anything, which she proves by opening every episode with "Kellyoke" — her rendition of a song, typically chosen by an audience member, from Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" to Lizzo's "Juice."

The 'American Idol' champ starts each episode of her daytime talk show with a performance displaying her powerhouse pipes.

Then there's her attentive, entertaining interviews with celebrities and folks doing good in the world. We knew her enthusiasm and curiosity were infectious, but it turns out they're hereditary: She let her kids ask Jason Momoa, aka Aquaman, if he knows Ariel, the Little Mermaid, and where the superhero goes to the bathroom! Y'all, that's info we need!
