In video that went viral, Clarkson was walking along and suddenly tripped. She came close to falling, but recovered and kept going to the cheers of the crowd.
Now, she has reacted to the fall saying that there was a crack hidden under the carpet, and joking that she is "utterly not cool."
Fans are responding to her new message, with one person quipping, "But owning your not coolness makes you super cool! Just thought you should know!"
"You are Real and that makes you Cooler. Another awesome performance out of you. I tuned in just to hear your wonderful vocals," another fan said.
With every trip and stumble and awesome song after song, @kellyclarkson remains my fave American Idol of all time.— James Vasquez (@the_jimmyv) May 26, 2019
"It's alright. I'm as clumsy as they come but your Star Spangled Banner @ Indy was awesome," someone else complimented.
"Ha ha...something my girlfriends would’ve done ..well except maybe take a bow at the end," one other fan commented. "You are the coolest Kelly!!"
Stumble or not, your 🎵singing🎵 knocked it out of the track again!🤩🤩🤩 Please be here every Memorial Day!— Paul G (@PAGalloway) May 26, 2019
While many of her followers responded to her "uncool" joke, others took an opportunity to let her know that they loved per performance of the National Anthem.
"To be fair, Kelly, it was probably a pot hole and they just covered it up! Welcome to Indy again and beautiful job on the anthem!!!" a fan gushed.
You just stumbled a little bit 😀. The “headlines” made it sound like you fell off the stage or something - but you did recover well! Be careful out there! BTW, you really nailed the National Anthem!— Williams (@987will) May 26, 2019
