Kelly Clarkson returned to the American Idol stage during the show's final season with an emotional performance that left everyone in tears. 

The 2002 Idol champ took the stage to perform her heart-wrenching single, "Piece By Piece". The autobiographical tune was written by Clarkson after the birth of her first child, River Rose, and draws comparisons between Clarkson's father who left her as a child, and her husband, Brandon Blackstock. The singer, now pregnant with her second child, broke down while singing "Piece By Piece" for the Idol crowd. But, it was Keith Urban's response to the song that had everyone talking. The American Idol judge and country star was deeply moved by the song as he wept during the performance. 

Urban lost his father last December following a battle with cancer. While Clarkson's song may have been a reminder of his father, the reason for Urban's tears could also be because the song is simply powerful. 

Urban took to Twitter to praise Clarkson following her stunning performance last night. 

Clarkson's performance also resonated with people at home as the Facebook video of the song garnered more than 20 million views overnight and the song shot to #2 on the charts. Check out Kelly Clarkson's American Idol performance in the video below and let us know what you think!
