Kelly Clarkson was in Washington, DC to pay tribute to Reba McEntire at the Kennedy Center Honors but that wasn’t the only magical moment of the evening. Kelly was on the red carpet being interviewed by "Extra" when she realized honoree Cher was right behind her, and she couldn’t be more excited.
Video shows Kelly totally fan-girling over Cher, sharing, “I hear Cher; she's right behind me right now. I can't even talk about it. I've never met her… Don't do anything either, it'll make me so nervous I'll wanna cry.”
“Extra” journalist AJ Calloway took it upon himself to step in and introduced Kelly to Cher, and the moment was priceless. “Nice to meet you… I'm a big fan, obviously. I'm going to stop talking now,” Kelly says, before Cher responds, “No, I'm so happy to meet you!" Check out the video to the right.
