Well, that's awkward!
Kelly Clarkson had to c-c-c-catch her breath after stumbling through the lyrics to some of her hit songs. The kicker? The words she struggled the most to remember were lyrics the 34-year-old singer and season one winner of American Idol actually wrote herself!
In the hilariously gone-wrong Facebook Live, the mom of two — to daughter River Rose, 2, and three-month-old son Remington — sang some of her hit songs like "Catch My Breath" and "Beautiful Disaster," but the best part was watching her off the cuff attempt to remember the words (with the help of her off-camera team, who had to keep feeding her lines!).
"Right now, start throwing in Kelly Clarkson songs, you know songs that you really love of mine or whatever that you want to hear a little part of, and we'll just randomly do them. This is seriously not planned. I haven't warmed up," she said, kicking off the broadcast.
Shortly before beginning her set, she warned Facebook Live users, "I retain nothing, especially when I write it." And minutes later, she proved this was the case when she forgot the entire first verse to a song she wrote — "Catch My Breath" — and requested that they skip ahead to the chorus!

Kelly giggled her way through the set before defending herself, saying "There's a lot of songs! It's 15 years!"
She may have missed a few lyrics — and to be honest, entire chunks of her most popular songs — but the "Piece by Piece" singer handled it like the professional she is and kept the broadcast fun and just laughed her way through it.
"Lyrics aren't my thing," she offered, looking slightly embarrassed, but still smiling.
We still love you, Kelly. (Although we'd be lying if we said we still didn't remember every single lyric of your first single, "A Moment Like This.")
