Kelly Clarkson has waited all her life for a moment like this, and wouldn’t you know it, Bill Clinton takes the opportunity to photobomb the singer. Ok, maybe not intentionally (or … did he?), but this gets my vote for the best photo of the day, hot off the presses of Twitter.
Clarkson joined the likes of Beyonce and James Taylor to sing in front of the newly-inaugurated President and nearly one million spectators who gathered on the mall in Washingtonton, D.C. today.
The first “American Idol” champ sang “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” with the United States Marine Band in advance after Obama’s moving address.
Clarkson tweeted to her 2.6 million Twitter followers: “Wow … I was incredibly nervous and cold ha! I just wanna officially thank President Obama for opening for me haha! Just kidding :)”
She also tweeted: “What an honor to be a part of history! Obama’s presence was powerful and his words unforgettable. It’s a proud day for America!”
Oh, and she met the day’s other big singer, Beyonce, somewhere along the way. “Me and B just hangin’ out,” Clarkson wrote beneath a photo. “Don’t worry about it. Seriously, God did good. She is so beautiful!”
