What a nightmare!

Let's journey back to the 2006 Grammys… it was a HUGE night for Kelly Clarkson as she became the first American Idol contestant to win not one, but TWO awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Since U Been Gone and Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakaway.

The then-23-year-old also took the stage that night to perform her classic ballad Because Of You.

As if the tensions weren't high enough, this was all going on the very same day doctors mistakenly diagnosed the songstress with cancer.

The Stronger singer opened up about the whole ordeal for the first time on Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast this week, saying:

"Well, not many people know this — not to be a Debbie Downer — but I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something. Here's the horrible part: I went the whole day crying. They redid my makeup, like, four times because I was like, ‘Wow, so young.' I was just completely freaking out. Then when I won, I thought, ‘Oh, my God. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens.'"

It wasn't until the next day that doctors told Miz Clarkson the whole thing was just a mix up:

"I was like, ‘You completely ruined my entire [experience].' The first time for an artist … as a kid watching the Grammys, that was a big dream! It was kind of the worst/greatest day. And the next day was also the worst/greatest day because I wanted to punch someone. I was like, ‘Who mixes up results? Why wouldn't you test again?' It was very much a roller coaster ride, that day, for me. So, it's kind of unfortunate, but a lot of the moments got stolen from that mishap. But hey, I didn't have cancer!"

Whew. We're stressed just thinking about it!

Tune in Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS to see if Kelly takes home another trophy for Best Pop Solo Performance for Piece by Piece (Idol Version)!
