Thinking of a Judd Apatow movie featuring Steve Carell, the title for this blog seemed fitting for a contest... FORTUNATELY for the men of the southwest we will make it incredibly less painful and easier for the Kelly Clarkson fans to nab tickets to her show this fall!

The 2015 Piece by Piece tour was announced yesterday with her only Saskatchewan date in Saskatoon at the Sasktel Centre, Saturday October 10th.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 20th at 10am BUT you can Beat the Box Office by racing the clock!

Below, some Kelly Clarkson trivia, when you hear the cue to call Friday morning the clock will wind down from 60s and you will answer as many questions as possible until the buzzer. You have unlimited wrong answers but you must have four correct before the time runs out!
