Kelly Clarkson hosted the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night (May 1, 2019), for the second year in a row, and although fans couldn’t tell, the singer was in some serious pain.

Clarkson was suffering from appendicitis and had her appendix removed shortly after the big show.

Clarkson revealed the news of her surgery on Twitter on Thursday (May 2), in response to a fan praising her “flawless” hosting job.

According to Clarkson, though, what viewers didn’t see is her “[breaking] down in tears after the show from pain.”

“BUT thanks 2 all the amazing people @ Cedars-Sinai I flew home directly after the event, nailed the surgery early this morning, & feeling awesome now!” Clarkson adds. “Bye bye appendix.”

Clarkson’s 2019 Billboard Music Awards hosting duties included a performance of her new song “Broken and Beautiful,” from the UglyDolls movie, as well as an opening medley of some of the year’s biggest hits. Songs by Florida Georgia Line, Maren Morris, Dan + Shay and more were in the mix.
