Kelly Clarkson dropped jaws in her skintight, waist-wrapping, glittery black dress at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. The 38-year-old “American Idol” OG and host of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” changed into a whopping seven outfits for the annual event as she took on host role, with fans likely eyeing up the blonde’s whittled-down frame. Kelly dropped 37 pounds in 2018, with the much-loved star showing off her trim waist and hourglass figure for the Wednesday event. Check out Kelly and her skinny minny look below.

Kelly, still in the news for her 2020 divorce from now ex-husband Brandon Blackstock, had gone full glam for the awards, looking stunning in a fitted, liquid-effect black dress with glitter fabrics. The singer, shimmering from every angle and flaunting her 37-pound drop, looked confident, also rocking her trademark blonde hair and a bold red lip.
The global pandemic postponed the Billboard Music Awards, with social distancing measures in full swing – Kelly was due to host back in April, with this year being her third year in a row.

“TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT! Let’s do this, @BBMAs! All happening at 8/7c on @NBC! #BBMAs,” the star wrote.
Fans only seem to be in it for Kelly, although a slew of stars including singer Billie Eilish and legend Cher were in attendance.
“Only reason I am truly watching ???,” one fan wrote.
Kelly’s weight-loss journey wasn’t a traditional one. “The Voice” coach opened up to Hoda Kotb in 2018, revealing that the drop wasn’t a vanity deal.
“I had an autoimmune disease and a thyroid problem that started in 2006,” Kelly said, adding: “I know the industry loves the weight gone, but for me, it wasn’t really (about) the weight. For me, it was ‘I’m not on my medicine any more.'”
The mom of two, now raising daughter River and son Remington as a single mom, has also admitted how her workouts look.
Kelly’s sense of humor stretches to her workout philosophies. The singer made headlines in 2018 for a tweet that got very real indeed.
“This just in,” Kelly wrote:
“I still hate working out. I’m sweaty, red, and not any thinner. People say it’s good for your heart…. but people also say red wine is good for your heart. I mean, I’m just stating facts here people. Who am I to ignore science?!”
Kelly is also fresh from revealing that her 6-year-old and 4-year-old children are in therapy amid their parents’ divorce.
