On Thursday, it will not just feature the performance of Clarkson and Underwood but will also be the moment when the Americal Idol Season 15 winner will be crowned, Deadline reported.
To recall, Clarkson returned to the show for an emotional performance of "Piece by Piece" that made Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and the audience cry. After her performance, the singer implied in a tweet that it will be her last time on the Idol stage.
"What an emotional night. Thanks @AmericanIdol for such a beautiful beginning & a perfect ending," Clarkson, who is heavily pregnant and is approaching her due date, tweeted, ETOnline reported.
But since she is the first Idol winner, it would just be right to see her on the last day of the show after 15 seasons.
