Here’s what Kelly Clarkson said to the audience before singing Shallow.
“I love artists. I know there’s a lot of competition always with artists in the industry, but there’s a lot of us that just dig each other and really get inspired by each other and what they’re doing. And this chick is amazing. We’re really different but at the same time we’re really similar in the fact that she just loves music and that’s why she’s doing what she’s doing. I remember her first single, we actually did a show together, combined like for some event. She wrote me a handwritten letter like note like saying, ‘Thank you so much it was an honor to open for you.'” She was the nicest human being ever. Her name is Lady Gaga.”
