Kelly Clarkson met Cher for the first time and she was beyond thrilled. The moment happened on the red carpet at the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night in Washington, D.C. Kelly was at the event to perform in the tribute for her mother-in-law Reba McEntire. While being interviewed by Extra, she noticed that Cher was right behind her and she eventual received an introduction. “Hi! I’m Kelly Clarkson! Nice to meet you!” Kelly told Cher. “I have never met you, I’ve been talking about you this whole time going, ‘She’s right behind me!!’ I’m a big fan, obviously everyone here is, I’m gonna stop talking.” “I’m so happy to meet you!” Cher responded.
