Now this is how you start a show's farewell tour.
Kelly Clarkson took to the American Idol stage on Thursday night to wrap up the episode, performing Piece By Piece — and doing it SO well that she brought judges and audience members to tears!
She even made herself a little bit emotional with the performance, getting swept up in the nostalgia of where her career began, considering it's now Idol's final season on television.

The performance itself was AH-mazing — soaring vocals, heartfelt lyrics, and really, a testament to some of the talent that Idol has produced in its years on TV.

We're not sure if this will be Clarkson's last appearance on the show as it winds down this year, but if it was, what a performance she gave!!
