Before the Cincinnati Bengals were knocked out of the playoffs by the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship, thirsty Joe Burrow videos were all over TikTok.

As a result, people like singer and talk show host Kelly Clarkson apparently thought that Burrow was notable for only his TikTok fame, specifically for being a “TikTok rapper.”

During her monologue at the 12th annual NFL Honors, host Kelly Clarkson joked that she thought Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was a TikTok rapper, presumably based on the way he dresses.

Burrow and the Bengals ultimately lost to Patrick Mahomes, who was named league MVP on Thursday night, and the Kansas City Chiefs. Mahomes was previously named MVP following the 2018 season.

Mahomes and the Chiefs will take on Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday. The game is being played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and will kick off at 6:30 p.m. EST. The Eagles are currently favored by just 1.5 points.
