The TikTok of their interview with Clarkson has gained over two million views.
In one moment during the conversation, Clarkson complimented member Jeongyeon's "sultry" speaking voice.
She said, "You have a very beautiful speaking voice. It's, like, low. It's like very low and sultry, I like it. Very deep, I like it."
"Kelly Clarkson said what needed to be said," one fan commented on TikTok.
Another person said in the comments, "AND THE CROWD GOES WILD FOR YOO JEONGYEON!!!!!"
On Twitter, a separate clip from the interview has amassed nearly four million views, in which Clarkson learned how to correctly pronounce member Tzuyu's name.
"Wait, what?" Clarkson exclaimed when she learned the pronunciation. She then asked Tzuyu how she'd like for her to say it.
"Oh, how you say it's adorable!" Clarkson gushed.
Fans were delighted by the interaction both in-person and online, and many appreciated Clarkson's acknowledgment of the correct pronunciation.
"I think it's cute that she asked, she genuinely didn't know, and many Onces [Twice fans] have struggled to learn how to say it (me included, it took me a lot of time to figure it out), so her asking Tzu how she wanted her to pronounce it was very sweet," one fan tweeted in reply to the clip.
Another fan noted on Twitter, "Kindness and Respect is so easy. I love it."
Clarkson also corrected her own pronunciation of Nayeon's name at another point in the interview.
Fans were also delighted by member Sana's revelation that she loves to eat Takis, plus Dahyun's love for "hamburger, pizza, chocolate, potato, and pasta," which prompted Clarkson to announce, "I found my sister in the group."
TWICE also performed their newest single, "Moonlight Sunrise," on the show.
