Kelly Clarkson Had Emergency Surgery Hours After Hosting the Billboard Music Awards

Kelly Clarkson did an amazing job hosting the 2019 Billboard Music Awards last night and she showed no signs of being in distress… even though she was rushed home after the show to prep for surgery.

The 37-year-old singer had her appendix removed the morning after hosting the show, according to Entertainment Tonight. She reportedly had been suffering from a “painful bout of appendicitis all week.”

Kelly flew home to Los Angeles moments after the show ended in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (May 1) and she was in surgery by Thursday morning.

Kelly was on stage all night long and even gave two performances. She sang her new UglyDolls song “Broken & Beautiful” and she also performed a medley of the year’s chart-topping hits.

We hope that Kelly is feeling better!
