Kelly Clarkson’s emotional performance of ‘The Dance’ at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards has left Garth Brooks in tears. The event, which was originally scheduled for April but postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, saw Clarkson deliver a heart-wrenching tribute to Brooks. The country icon, who was being honored with the Icon Award, looked on as Clarkson poured her heart into his classic hit.

Clarkson’s version of ‘The Dance’ was stripped down and raw, allowing her powerful voice to take center stage. As she sang, images of Brooks throughout the years were displayed behind her, showing the progression of his career and impact on the genre. By the time Clarkson reached the iconic chorus, “And now I’m glad I didn’t know / The way it all would end,” even Brooks couldn’t hold back the tears.

Brooks has been a mentor and inspiration to Clarkson since the beginning of her career. In a heartfelt speech after the performance, he thanked her for the tribute and praised her talent as an artist. “I love you, I respect you, and I will always be grateful for what you have done for me,” he said.

The emotional moment served as a reminder of the power of music to connect people and evoke strong emotions. Clarkson’s tribute to Brooks was a beautiful celebration of his legacy and impact on generations of musicians. It was a fitting tribute to one of country music’s greatest icons and a testament to the timeless quality of his music.
