Kelly Clarkson Makes Emotional Return To American Idol
Clarkson herself stopped at several points near the end of the song, overcome with emotion. "I'm pregnant and nostalgic and it's the last season," Clarkson told host Ryan Seacrest after her performance. "I'm sorry I just bawled."
The tune is about a father who abandons his daughter and the daughter who in turn builds a family to whom she refuses to do the same. "It's touching for me because I wrote it when I was pregnant with my little girl, and now I'm pregnant with my little boy," Clarkson said, adding, "who I hope comes out soon." Watch it here.
