Kelly Clarkson Makes Keith Urban Fall to “Pieces” on American Idol [Video]

HUGE Kelly Clarkson fan right here!  And, yes.  I am an original American Idol voter.  The night of the Season One finale, I burned my phone up trying to make sure that Kelly would get enough votes to beat Justin Guarini in the final and earn the title of the first American Idol champion.  And this is why.  Her voice.  That voice!  On full display last night as Kelly returned to the show to guest judge for its final season.  And after judging the Top Ten performances, Kelly returned to the Idol stage and absolutely brought everyone watching to tears . . . including Keith Urban, who cried, sobbed, with the rest of this.  I suppose you could say we all fall to "Pieces."
