Kelly Clarkson has lined up a big honor for next year: she'll be a celebrity grand marshal during the 2013 Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans.
Nola.com reports that specifically, Kelly will be the grand marshal of the Krewe of Edymion, one of the three so-called "Super Krewes" who put on over-the-top, spectacular parades every year during Mardi Gras. The Krewe of Edymion is the largest of all the Mardi Gras parades, and for 2013, they plan to build what they claim will be the largest float in Mardi Gras history -- it'll be close to the length of a football field.
In addition to riding on a float in the parade on February 9, 2013, Kelly will also headline the Edymion Extravaganza, a huge post-parade bash that will take place in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Past celebrity grand marshals of the Krewe of Edymion parades have included Maroon 5 , Train , Kid Rock and Britney Spears .
