Billboard points out, “Clarkson, who released her eighth studio album, Meaning of Life, in 2017 is no stranger to the Billboard charts.  She has 27 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 charts so far, including 11 top 10s.  Three of those top 10s grabbed the No. 1 spot, including ‘A Moment Like This,’ ‘My Life Would Such Without You’ and ‘Stronger [What Doesn’t Kill You].’ She also has three No. 1s on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with 10 entries total.”


During Kelly’s tour stop in Dallas, she told her fans, “So they’ve asked me to host the Billboard Music Awards again.  I was terrified to do it last year and then we made it music so it made me more comfortable, and they asked me to do it again, so I didn’t suck.  They don’t ask people if you’re bad to come back.”  Kelly also explained, “I know I seem like such a nerd, like I’ve been covering songs from the beginning, since Idol, but I love music just like you.  I liken to music so much, when I’m chilling, when I’m reading, the few times a year I’m on a treadmill, I just love music.  I love having it on.  So it’s a really cool event to be able to go to.”
