The Breakaway singer shed tears on The Voice and apologized to the contestant.


One of the contestants on the hit singing competition sang a heartwarming rendition of one of Kelly Clarkson’s emotional songs during the blind auditions, as shared by Rare Country.

33-year-old Stephanie Skipper chose Clarkson’s Piece by Piece for her audition on the series.

A teaser for the next episode showed Clarkson dropping her jaw just a few notes into the song, realizing that it was hers. When she heard Skipper’s voice, she wiped her eye, catching a tear.

Despite the emotional effect of Skipper’s performance, Clarkson did not turn her chair around for the contestant.


Although, Skipper still has secured a spot since Adam Levine and Blake Shelton turned around for her.

Clarkson, explaining her side, first apologized to Skipper for not turning around and said that she was sad that she didn’t.

She was emotional the whole time she was speaking. Clarkson clarified that she had been filling her team quite fast since it was her first season and the slots left are pretty limited, which was why she did not turn around for Skipper.

She went on to say that she thought it was cool that Skipper picked her song.

In response to Clarkson’s apology, Skipper said it didn’t matter because she was still on the show.

Afterward, Clarkson went towards Skipper and hugged her.

From that point, the judges started commenting on Skipper’s performance.


Levine said, “The heart and the soul [were] there, and I think that is the only place on my team here that I’d ever want to start.”

Alicia Keys said that her favorite part of Skipper’s voice was the “beautiful quiver-lilt that’s inside of it.” She said she thought it was really unique.

Shelton then said, “I applaud you for doing something scary, and just coming out here laying out this passionate performance that connected to all of us – especially Kelly. I think she’s still crying.”

Skipper replied and said the song was very close to her heart as well.
