Kelly Clarkson Performs “Piece By Piece” On “Ellen DeGeneres Show” — WATCH!
Kelly Clarkson gives another powerful performance of “Piece By Piece” on Thursday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, “Piece By Piece” first came out more than a year ago as the title track for Clarkson’s last album. The song had a resurgence, however, just last week when the singer gave an incredibly emotional and stripped-down performance of it on “American Idol.” The show’s inaugural winner, who is currently pregnant with her second child, was moved by her return to the stage that launched her career as she sang about her father’s abandonment and her husband’s commitment to their family.
Speaking to DeGeneres, Clarkson says, “I could not hold it together. I was almost losing it the entire song. I was proud of myself for making it as far as I did.” The superstar describes “Piece By Piece” as “sad but hopeful,” and admits that she “feels lucky” to have processed through her “daddy issues” so well.
Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the performance, Clarkson formally recorded that slow-tempo version of the song. Now she sings it just as beautifully for DeGeneres’ talk show audience, and it’s still just as touching. Check out the videos below!
