Kelly Clarkson Had Cancer Scare Before Winning at Grammys 2006

Kelly Clarkson Had Cancer Scare Before Winning at Grammys 2006

Kelly Clarkson revealed she had a cancer scare the day of the 2006 Grammys – where she ended up winning Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Since U Been Gone” and Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakaway.

“Well, not many people know this — not to be a Debbie Downer — but I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something,” Kelly told Billboard’s Pop Shop Podcast this week. “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.’”

It turned out, there was a mix-up at the doctor’s office, and Kelly was in the clear.

“I was like, ‘You completely ruined my entire [experience],’” she said of her reaction to the doctor’s revelation. “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!”
