Kelly Clarkson Moves 'American Idol' Judges to Tears With 'Piece By Piece'

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Following Kelly Clarkson`s heartfelt performance of Piece by Piece on American Idol Thursday night, the single has soared to No. 1 on iTunes. Its 2015 album of the same name also shot to a top spot, nabbing No. 3 on the iTunes album chart.

Clarkson, the inaugural Idol winner, returned to the stage Thursday night to christen the final season`s top 10 contestants. She served as a guest judge for the bulk of the evening, later bringing the audience to tears with an emotional rendition of the song, which was written as a mesage to her father and husband."

Entertainment Weekly

After 15 seasons "American Idol" is going out not with a bang, but with a whimper. I immerse myself in pop culture, I read all the entertainment magazines, browse all the celeb Web sites, and there`s absolutely no buzz about the final season of Idol.

At least there wasn`t until the original Idol, Kelly Clarkson, returned to the show that made her an international superstar as a guest judge and guest performer.

Clarkson brought the house down with her stirring rendition of her self-penned song "Piece by Piece". Watch the video of her performance, I guarantee you will need a Kleenex.

I haven`t watched a single episode of American Idol this year, and I have no idea if the final ten contestants have any talent, but I`m sure they can`t compare to Clarkson.
