Emotional Kelly Clarkson Can’t Get Through Performance, American Idol Left In Tears.

It’s the last season of American Idol, and after almost 15 years the very first winner is back to take the stage once more.

Kelly Clarkson is a true icon. Famous for not only winning the first Idol, but also because of her accomplishments afterwards. She’s been on the Billboard top 100 multiple times, had a double platinum record, a Grammy and four American Music Awards (just to name a few). And now… Her greatest accomplishment is her family. Kelly has a wonderful husband, one daughter named River Rose, and a son on the way.

“Piece By Piece” is Kelly’s very emotional song about her past and present – struggles and triumphs. While singing, she pours out her passions and captures the hearts of every single person on stage. The star somewhat blames her ‘fragile’ state on nostalgia and pregnancy, but either way her performance is heart-wrenching.

Watch as Kelly wraps up the last season of American Idol as the “Original Idol.” And share her touching performance!
