Kelly Clarkson not only hosted the Billboard Music Awards Wednesday night (May 1) but she also graced the audience with a stunning performance of her current single “Broken & Beautiful.”
Now, Kelly has the power to touch any emotion in us with her songs, from laughter to tears, she has a way of reaching deep down and speaking to our souls. The 37-year-old did just that to This is Us star Chrissy Metz, who could be seen wiping tears from her eyes at the very end of Kelly’s performance.
While Chrissy was reduced to tears, many stars in the audience were to get up out of their seats and clap along. In the video, we can see Khalid, Dan+Shay, Ciara and Russell Wilson and their son, getting down to the beat. But the cutest moment came when the camera panned to Kelly’s husband, Brandon Blackstock, who could be standing in his seat, with the look of such pride for his wife. Cue the sighs.
“Broken & Beautiful” is featured on the UglyDolls soundtrack, in which Kelly voices the lead character Moxy for the film.

With lyrics like “Can someone just hold me? / Don’t fix me, don’t try to change a thing / Can someone just know me? / ‘Cause underneath, I’m broken and it’s beautiful,” we can see how tears and joy can reach even the hardest of hearts.
