Kelly Clarkson Salutes Clive Davis

Kelly Clarkson performs at the 2009 GRAMMY Salute To Industry Icons at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday (February 7) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 26-year-old original American Idol champ hit the red carpet in a perwinkle blue Carmen Marc Valvo dress and Loree Rodkin jewels. At the event, Kelly honored record industry boss Clive Davis. She received one of the evening’s biggest standing ovations with her performance of her new single, “My Life Would Suck Without You” and her own rendition of the Janis Joplin classic “Piece of My Heart.”

  • jenna

    she’s never been this like js..and she doesn’t really care about her weight..i think she just picked a really unfortunate dress that makes her fuller figger look bigger.
    I love her. She doesn’t give a crap what anyone thinks.

  • um…

    She’s put on a few I suppose — but who cares?
    Still gorgeous.

  • Dyna

    She is a sweet girl and I love her music. I don’t see why her weight should be an issue. It’s rude to pick on her about that.

  • mayday parade

    wow you people are rude…

    so what she isnt a stick figure, who cares… its suppose to be about the voice not the ay she looks..

    we all know katy perry is only famous cuz of her large breasts, its sad really

  • http://youtube.com/inbars14 inbar

    i l-o-v-e her songs and everything but, you know i just read twice this headline says kelly clarkson like what’s up with this usually be lovely girl???!!! she look like her somo photho shop version!!

  • alicia

    i absolutely love kelly clarkson but she did not look good last night.
    unflattering dress.

    her hair almost looks dirty. not a fan.

  • Mami

    Wow they must have REALLY photoshopped her CD cover.

  • missme

    NaiGi, I completely agree! By no means do I think weight should be criticized but it is unfair how Jessica gets so much slack, while Kelly goes unmentioned!

  • Shontelle

    Wat the Hell happened to her?!?!?!
    Well..if yu culd gain it yu could lose it
    She’s a pretty girl anyway..

  • The Jakes

    Very disheveled. Is she drunk?

  • BECKY SMITH

    Let’s have a tribute to AMERICAN IDOL.. SINCE CARRIE UNDERWOOD, KELLY CLARKSON , FANTASIA , JENNIFER
    HUDSON just to name a few..started from that show..If it wasn’t
    for American Idol these people would not be where they are
    today..

  • serena

    OMG-her hair!!!!!

  • http://JJ.COM BLIP

    OH MY .. SHE’S A COW …MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :)

  • http://JJ.COM BLIP

    THEY ARE BOTH COWS MMMMMMMOOOOOOOOOOOO :)

  • http://JJ.COM BLIP

    COWS

  • Allen

    The difference between Kelly and Jessica is because Kelly has talent, and so it doesn’t really matter what she weighs or what she looks like.

  • http://JJ.COM BLIP

    YOU DON’T LIKE THE WORD COW MMOOO

  • myob

    YIKES!!!

    Someone get this girl a stylist (or fire the exisiting one) and some Slim Fast!

  • cg

    Kelly shouldn’t worry about her weight while she has been taking time off, just wait until she goes on tour people. Besides talent is what really matters not how you look I mean look at some of the greats like Aretha. (i’m not making fun of her btw, i like Aretha) Also Kelly has more talent than the majority of the singers who are tooth picks.

  • Laura

    If you like her music, you shouldn’t care about her weight. It’s extrememly dumb that people judge others on their weight.

  • Madeline

    omg… you people are so rude!
    it doesnt matter about how you look.
    kelly doesnt buy into the whole hollywood stick figure thing and im glad!
    she has talent and who cares if she is a little big.

  • Oh my

    So what if she is plump. I kind of like that she doesn’t conform–it’s refreshingly different.

  • BECKY SMITH

    Yeah have Kelly and Jen Hudson sing together … they are both chubbetts.. Good going .. the AMERICAN IDOL VERSION OF
    THE GRAMMY’S TONIGHT..

  • ali

    she looks nothing like the way she does on her cd cover.. thanks to photoshop!

  • http://jlho.fansites.me sanne

    what happend to her?

  • Sarah

    Who the heck cares what she looks like? Bad outfit choices maybe….didn’t flatter her figure well…. but the stuff she’s wearing in her newest video look awesome on her…..plus she can sing the sh*t out of anything, as proved by the standing ovation mention! Go girl!

  • Lyra

    LEAVE HER ALONE!!!!!! She looks great, just because she’s not a barbie with no-brain like others doesn’t mean nothing! She has an AMAZING voice, that’s what matters, I can’t believe how there’s still people that judges so fast, and later there’s young girl battling anorexia and bulimia, all because of the stupid weight!

    LOVE YOU KELLY!!!!!!!

  • Matt

    DAYUMMMM!! What happened, Kelly? Why? Why??

  • Matt

    DAYUMMMM!! What happened, Kelly? Why? Why??

  • cg

    Nothing happened to Kelly, sorry she doesn’t give into the Hollywood glitz and glamor. She could give crap about being a star she only wants to sing and write. And the person who gave the suggestion of Kelly not eating meat anymore well Kelly has been a vegetarian for over a year now so and just because your a vegetarian doesn’t mean you have to be skinny. Kelly works out when she feels like it, she is human you know. And if when Kelly does slims down to the size she was back in 2005 you negative Nancy’s will then be saying she’s anorexic or something. Stop worrying about other people. Celebrities have feelings too and besides Kelly doesn’t read this junk anyway.

  • lola

    she isn’t very smart….. carrie underwood was kinda chubby, but she hires a trainer to help her staying in shape.
    great singer, but thick as hell.

  • cindy

    KC looks fine. She has been away, enjoying her hiatus….When tour stars….she begins to lose weight.

  • Jake

    How you look MATTERS, especially when you have a new album coming out and with all the press that comes. I dont get these people defending her weight gain, you guys obviously must not care about her health. She doesn’t look fine she looks overweight. Its the truth. No one is being mean. I care about her and I want her to be healthy so when she goes on tour she has stamina.

  • marisa720

    Actually #47 her looks DON’T matter as far as the people who like her for her SINGING talent. The media is brainwashing people especially young people into thinking that it does.Is she on the heavy side? Absolutely but that’s her choice and decision. I still will be buying her album.

    Besides every singer doesn’t have to take it upon themselves to be a role model for weight, morals, or whatever else people what to put on them. Buy the album or don’t buy it and leave it that.

  • Arthur

    the diference is that Jessica is a big nothing, and Kelly very tallented and a very nice people.

  • lovelylou

    This poor girl just looks bad, whoever her stylist is, they should be fired! I mean really, hair make up dress, it is all BAD and just makes her look like she is much bigger then (i am guessing) she really is, and it doesn’t help that she has no boobs. For all those that say why does it matter… cause she is in the PUBLIC and she should at LEAST look healty which she doesn’t.
