Issy Palmer Represents Utes On Kelly Clarkson Show

Mar 30, 2023, 12:52 PM

SALT LAKE CITY –Β Utah women’s basketball is having a moment and that continued Wednesday afternoon as Issy Palmer represented the Utes on the Kelly Clarkson Show.

Clarkson shot to fame in 2002 as the first winner of American Idol and going on to have a prolific singing and television personality career since, culminating in her own talk show that began in September of 2019.

Palmer, along with Oklahoma’s Skylar Vann competed in Clarkson’s “Snack Bracket” that is pairing off regional dishes that might appear at a March Madness party to determine a winner.

Funeral Potatoes Vs. Onion Burger

Palmer was on hand to represent one of Utah’s favorite and famed dishes- funeral potatoes. Anyone that has lived in the Beehive State knows all too-well about the cheesy, creamy, potatoe-y, baked goodness that is a staple at any family gathering.

Vann on the other hand represented an Oklahoma staple- the onion burger.

Unfortunately, despite the funeral potatoes getting Clarkson to hit a few notes of praise, they were no match for the onion burger that was advanced to the next round of the Snack Bracket.

We don’t know about you, but uhhh…it’s time for a snack now…
