Kelly Clarkson's Cancer Scare On The Night She Won Her First Grammy | Entertainment Weekly
Kelly Clarkson Was Told She Had Cancer On Day of Grammy Awards After Doctors Gave Her the WRONG Results
Kelly Clarkson has opened up about the terrifying moment when she was told she could have cancer – only to find out later that doctors had actually mixed up her results.
The 34-year-old revealed that she had trouble keeping it together at the 2006 Grammy Awards – where she won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album – because she had been given the devastating, and inaccurate, news shortly before the awards show.
Talking onBillboard's Pop Shop Podcast, the 'Because of You' singer said: "Not many people know this —not to be a Debbie Downer— but 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 make-up 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.'
"I went to the doctor's the next day and they apologised for mixing up results. And I was like, 'Are you for real?!' I was like, 'You completely ruined my entire [experience].' The first time for an artist... as a kid watching the Grammys, that was a big dream!"
She continued: "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!
"I don't really tell that story, because it's kind of a Debbie Downer, but that's the real story. You think it would've been the greatest night ever for an artist,
"And then it was like a joke... like, 'This is my last hurrah!' I was so dramatic about it because I was 20-something and scared. It was so weird.
