The 'Since U Been Gone' hitmaker has heaped praise on the British artist, and hinted a duet with the 'Writing's On The Wall' singer could be on the cards if she has any say in the matter.
Kelly, 35, can vividly remember catching Sam, 25, cover the late Whitney's 'How Will I Know' and she was blown away by his vocal talents.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: ''The UK have some great soulful, gospel singers. You have Sam Smith, and Adele killing it. Sam is such a great talent, I would absolutely love to work with him.
''He had me since he covered 'How Will I Know'. I was like, 'Excuse me - who is this boy right now covering Whitney Houston?' He is super super talented, I am so in.''
The 'Love So Soft' singer will release her eight studio album 'The Meaning of Life' on Friday (27.10.17), and she is very proud of the LP because it is packed with live musicians playing.
She explained: ''People really do crave that live musicianship that is on this album. I think the music industry is making a turn back towards that now.
''Sometimes you get three or four singles on albums, but I'm a fan of full records. Everyone could have been the lead single.''
