Kelly Clarkson forms girl group

Kelly Clarkson has formed a girl group, Already Famous, with her backing singers.

The 'Because of You' singer has formed the vocal harmony band with her touring backup singers Jill and Kate and they have already started working on songs in the studio. Kelly tweeted: "I'm off to Oklahoma to record some songs with @jillandkate! I love random writing and recording with friends! (sic)

"We've been writing & singing together 4 over 4 years so we thought why not record it. We love singing harmony! (sic)"

The group later posted a small photo montage, and wrote: "Just wrapped up in the studio," then listed their producers and engineers. Jarod Evans, who had been working with them, tweeted back: "twas awesome. you guys wrote some amazing tunes! ready for round 2! (sic)"

Kelly also confirmed she will share lead vocal duties with her bandmates, saying: "We all sing lead, alto, and soprano at different points."

The 'I Do Not Hook Up' hitmaker is also working on her fifth solo album, which she can't wait for fans to hear. When complemented on her songs, she tweeted back to a fan: "Thanks for digging the music. Can't wait for you to hear the new stuff!"
