Kelly Clarkson went to her first GRAMMY Awards in 2006 but it wasn’t the happy occasion it should have been. In case you missed it, even though Kelly won two awards that night, she couldn’t enjoy it because that same morning she had been diagnosed with cancer.
“I went the whole day crying. They redid my makeup, like, four times because I was like, 'Wow, so young.' I was just completely freaking out," she told "Billboard's" Pop Shop Podcast. "Then when I won, I thought, 'Oh, my God. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens.'"
Turns out the cancer diagnosis was a mistake, but the damage was already done. "Who mixes up results? Why wouldn't you test again? It was very much a roller coaster ride, that day, for me," she said. "So, it's kind of unfortunate, but a lot of the moments got stolen from that mishap. But hey, I didn't have cancer!"
Kelly will be a presenter at this year's Grammys, happening tomorrow night! (Sunday, 2/12/17, 8p ET on CBS)
