Imagine the best night of your life ruined for a mishap! Kelly Clarkson knows it all too well!  At 23, nominated for 2 categories, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Since U Been Gone” and Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakaway. She won both awards, making her the first American Idol winner to earn a Grammy. To top it off, Clarkson performed the ballad “Because of You” during the show—but that’s not why she was on edge. “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. 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,” the singer revealed earlier this week. “Then when I won, I thought, ‘Oh my God. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens.'”Thankfully, Clarkson’s cancer diagnosis turned out to be a false alarm.”I went to the doctor’s the next day and they apologized for mixing up results. And I was like, ‘Are you for real?!” the “Dance With Me” singer recalled. “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! 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,” Clarkson continued. “And then it was like a joke…like, ‘This is my last hurrah!’ I was so dramatic about it because I was twenty-something and scared. It was so weird. I don’t even remember anything but being terrified.”The medical misinformation clouded her performance of “Because of You,” too.”It’s such a crap thing that happened, but at the end of the day, it’s amazing that I got to perform something that I wrote at 16,” Clarkson said on the podcast. “So, you know, it’s cool.”  Today, Clarkson is a proud wife & mama of 2!  Oh, & she won both those Grammy’s in ’06!
