Prior to the kick off of the live Grammy event, Clarkson took to Twitter to let her fans know why she wasn’t in attendance. “I’m out touring so couldn’t make tonight BUT couldn’t b more appreciative 4 the nomination & couldn’t be more excited 4 everyone there!” she wrote. Clarkson added a special message for her fellow artists, saying, “2 all the artists nominated & not nominated, win or lose, feel blessed that u get to do what u do 4 a living!”

Kelly followed up that tweet with well wishes for her fellow Voice coach Alicia Keys who took on hosting duties for the night.
