Kelly Clarkson Reveals Secret Reason She Cried At 2006 Grammys

February 9, 2017
At the 2006 Grammys, Kelly Clarkson cried as she accepted the award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Now she's revealed another reason she was crying.

She thought she had cancer.

Clarkson told Billboard's Pop Shop Pocast, "Not many people know this ... but I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something. And here's the horrible part: I go the whole day, and I completely cried — they had to redo my makeup four times, because I was like, 'Wow, I'm so young!' — and I was just completely freaking out."

The story gets worse (or better?):

"I went to the doctor the next day, and they apologized for mixing up results," she explained. "And I was like, ‘Are you for real? You completely ruined my entire (Grammy night) — first time for an artist, as a kid watching the Grammys, it was a big dream!"

I can't imagine the emotional rollercoaster that must have been, but glad she's okay.
