Kelly Clarkson Skipped the Grammy Awards and Everyone's Wondering Why

Don't worry: She has a good excuse.

Sunday night's Grammy Awards featured some of our absolute favorite faces in the music industry (hi, Dolly Parton and Kacey Musgraves!). But there was one person who was noticeably absent from the ceremony: Kelly Clarkson.

Kelly, who was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for Meaning Of Life, had viewers concerned after they realized she was a no-show. "WHERE IS KELLY CLARKSON," one person tweeted. "Where is Kelly Clarkson? I feel like she belongs at every #Grammys," someone else noted.

But fret not, Kelly fans, the singer had a completely understandable reason for not being in Los Angeles. "I’m out touring so couldn’t make #Grammys2019 tonight," The Voice coach announced on Twitter. "BUT couldn’t b more appreciative 4 the nomination & couldn’t be more excited 4 everyone there! 2 all the artists nominated & not nominated, win or lose, feel blessed that u get to do what u do 4 a living!"

It appears the American Idol alum enjoyed watching the awards just like the rest of us—from the couch! Kelly later tweeted good luck to host Alicia Keys and called Kacey's Golden Hour one of her "favorite albums," after its multiple wins.

Kelly has won Best Pop Vocal Album twice for Breakaway and Stronger, and she's also claimed the top spot for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Since U Been Gone."

Kelly was definitely missed last night, but we're Thankful it's because she's busy performing!
