The 2006 Grammy Awards ceremony was an emotional experience for Kelly Clarkson, and not just because she won two awards.
Kelly recently told Billboard’s "Pop Shop Podcast" that she had gotten some really, really bad medical results the morning of her first Grammy Awards. As if she weren't already nervous enough about the show, her doctor called that morning to let her know a test had come back positive for cancer.
"I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something. Here’s the horrible part: 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. Then when I won, I thought, ‘Oh, my God. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens.’”
Somehow Kelly was able to make it through not just her acceptance speeches, but a performance of her hit song, "Because of You."
Now here's the craziest part: apparently Kelly goes to the doctor from "Arrested Development" because the day after the show, the doctor called and told her the diagnosis was a "mix-up."
“I was like, ‘You completely ruined my entire [Grammy awards experience]. The first time for an artist … as a kid watching the Grammys, that was a big dream! It was kind of the worst/greatest day. And the next day was also the worst/greatest day because I wanted to punch someone. I was like, ‘Who mixes up results? Why wouldn’t you test again?’ It was very much a roller coaster ride, that day, for me. So, it’s kind of unfortunate, but a lot of the moments got stolen from that mishap. But hey, I didn’t have cancer!”
Hopefully Kelly got a new doctor after this experience.
