Watch Kelly Clarkson Bring Everyone (Including Herself) to Tears with Her Emotional American Idol Performance
Grab a tissue! Kelly Clarkson brought on the waterworks with an emotional performance of "Piece by Piece."
The original American Idol winner shed some tears on stage—and forced some from the Idol judges and the audience—as she performed on the show where it all began.
"I'm pregnant and it's nostalgic and I can't believe it's the last season," the expectant mother said. "Yeah, really sorry I just bawled."
This isn't the first time Clarkson got emotional performing "Piece by Piece." In August, when she announced that she was expecting her second child—a son—the singer broke down as she made her way through the tune, inspired by her husband's great parenting.
It was announced last May that this season, the show's fifteenth, would be its last. Entertainment Weekly reported in January that Clarkson would return to the idol stage as a performer and guest judge.
It's unclear if this will be Clarkson's only appearance on the final season, but she certainly gave a noteworthy farewell.
