Kelly Clarkson Gets Emotional On ‘American Idol’ In Her Final Ever Performance


American Idol is sadly coming to an end after running since 2002!

During the entirety of the show we have seen some phenomenal talent, but no one can forget the very first winner in Season 1, Kelly Clarkson.


Being just a teenager back then she impressed America and others worldwide with her incredible talent and simply stunning voice.

She has gone on to be one of the reality show’s biggest ever winners and is still doing amazingly well to this day.


As American Idol is finishing its last ever season, it seemed perfectly fitting for them to invite it’s first ever winner back to the stage to perform as a guest appearance.

She ended the last ever show in absolute style, and it’s safe to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house including Clarkson herself getting super emotional!

The singer, who is expecting her second child, sang ‘Piece By Piece’ from her latest album of the same name, a song she admits she hasn’t got through once without crying.

The moving song is about her father walking out of her life when she was just 6 years-old, and how she’ll never let her own children go through the same pain (sob!).

The star studded judges line up, including Jennifer Lopez, watched the former winner belt her heart out to the meaningful song and got teary-eyed themselves.

Kelly seemed to have the whole arena at her feet with the stripped back performance.

Get ready to feel super emotional as you watch Kelly get tearful during the truly beautiful song:
