Superstar Kelly Clarkson isn't going to let appendicitis hold her back from hosting a recent award show. On Wednesday night, Clarkson hosted the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas for the second year in a row.
Just hours after her hosting responsibilities ended, the singer skipped the after parties and underwent surgery to have her appendix removed. Clarkson shared with her Twitter followers that she had "broken down in tears after the show from pain."
According to Entertainment Tonight, Kelly's surgery did not appear to be an emergency procedure. Last week, she had reportedly been suffering from very painful appendicitis.
Thankfully, Clarkson now reports feeling awesome after having her appendix removed.
“Bye bye appendix #TheShowMustGoOn” the "Broken & Beautiful" singer concluded her tweet.
Throughout her time hosting the award show, Clarkson didn't let on to being in terrible pain. In addition to emceeing the show and entertaining the audience, Clarkson sang two songs on stage.
