The doctors made a mistake.
The next day, Clarkson said doctors told her there was a mixup in the results and that she did not have cancer.
“I was like, ‘You completely ruined my entire [experience],’” she continued. “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!”
At the 2017 Grammys, Clarkson is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Piece by Piece (Idol Version),” up against Beyoncé (“Hold Up”), Adele (“Hello”), Justin Bieber (“Love Yourself”) and Ariana Grande (“Dangerous Woman”).
