Kelly Clarkson is one of the biggest names in the music industry. After winning the first season of America Idol, she’s released record-breaking music, and collaborated with mega-stars, and has crossed genres from Pop to Country multiple times over. Today, she’s an entertainer on The Voice and still continues to wow fans with vocal range and performances.
In recent seasons as a coach on The Voice, Kelly has gained an adoring fan-base. And apart from her job as a musician and vocal coach as television, she’s also a loving wife and mother. To say she’s busy is a vast understatement.
This year on May 1st, 2019, Kelly hosted the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas for the second consecutive year. While she appeared totally fine during the show, she admitted that just seconds after the show was over, she broke down in tears due to paint in her abdomen.
On May 2nd, it was clear that Kelly had suffered from her appendix. Jarett Wieselman of the celebrity source, Jarett Says, broke the news on Twitter On May 2nd, saying, “Kelly Clarkson has been suffering from appendicitis all week & had her appendix removed this morning — yet last night she flawlessly hosted an award show and sang two songs without showing any sign of discomfort. How could you do anything BUT STAN?!?”
Kelly acknowledged the news herself by confirming that she did, in fact, have surgery immediately after the show. She replied to Jarett’s tweet, saying, “Not gonna lie.... I may or may not have broken down in tears after the show from pain 😬 BUT thanks 2 all the amazing people @ Cedars-Sinai I flew home directly after the event, nailed the surgery early this morning, & feeling awesome now! Bye bye appendix 🤣 #TheShowMustGoOn 💁🏼♀️”
Like a true performer, Kelly insisted that the show go on and apparently she performed so outstandingly that fans and viewers were totally shocked to hear that she managed to perform with such incredible energy. We hope she gets some good rest! Lord knows she needs it!
We are praying for you, Kelly! We know it’s not easy to work through pain and we are so thankful that you are okay! Thank God for doctors!
