Pregnant star, Kelly Clarkson broke down in tears as she made an emotional final return to American Idol. The 33-year-old singer sang on stage, Piece By Piece, which was written both about her absent father and as a tribute to her own husband. The performance was full of emotion and tears as she performed on the show that launched her career. Her deeply moving rendition also touched judges Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, who listened with tears in their eyes as Kelly struggled to finish the song. After the performance, Clarkson, who is pregnant and due in less than two months, apologized to host Ryan Seacrest. “I’m pregnant and I’m nostalgic and I can’t believe it’s the last season, and I’m really sorry, but I just bawled,” she told the crowd.
Kelly added, “It’s such a touching song for me as I wrote it while I was pregnant with my little girl, and now I’m pregnant with my little boy, who I hope comes out very soon!”. She also acted as a guest judge on the night. It was announced in May that this season of American Idol – the 15th would be its last. Kelly won the first ever series of the show back in 2001, and her performance was like a farewell to the singing competition.
It is all exciting news now for Kelly Clarkson. She is now counting down the days until she welcomes her baby boy, her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock. Kelly announced her pregnancy in August during a concert in LA, and revealed in October that she was expecting a son. Kelly and Brandon, who have been married since October 2013, are also the proud parents of daughter River Rose. Kelly is a stepmother to Brandon’s son and daughter from his previous marriage.
