Blake Shelton to conduct Clarkson wedding

Blake Shelton will conduct Kelly Clarkson's wedding.

The American Idol winner is set to tie the knot with her fiancé, talent manager Brandon Blackstock.

It seems the 30-year-old star will have plenty of support from famous friend Blake at the bash, revealing he will do more than provide musical entertainment.

Following yesterday's Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, Kelly apparently revealed to Entertainment Tonight that her singer pal will conduct the ceremony as well as perform at her wedding.

The pretty pop star has been dating Brandon since February last year and announced their engagement in December.

According to People magazine, Kelly will walk down the aisle in a Vera Wang dress, which she has described as "nothing like a princess thing".

Blake proved his singing prowess at the ACM Awards yesterday, wowing with a rendition of his latest catchy single Boys 'Round Here.

Joined by wife Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley and Luke Bryan, the 36-year-old entertained the audience with the catchy track.

Blake and Miranda were the stars of the show last night, with Blake hosting and his gorgeous partner taking home a number of awards.

Miranda scooped the title for female vocalist of the year, as well as record and song of the year with track Over You.

Luke Bryan took home entertainer of the year, while male performer of the year was awarded to Jason Aldean.

Also taking part in the celebrations were LL Cool J, Keith Urban and Shania, who returned to the awards after a decade away.
