"I'm pregnant, it's nostalgic, I can't believe it's the last season, I am really sorry I just bawled. I am actually quite proud I made it that far," Kelly told host Ryan Seacrest after her performance.
"It's such a touching song for me as I wrote it while pregnant with my little girl and now I am pregnant with my little boy."
Judges Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez were also visibly moved by the song, which Kelly wrote about her father who abandoned her.
Along with performing, Kelly served as a guest judge for the night. Despite the emotional tune, the 33-year-old kept things lighthearted, even joking that she might go into labor in the studio.
This will be the second child for Kelly and her husband Brandon Blackstock, who already have a 20-month-old daughter.
