Although Kelly Clarkson couldn’t attend the epic ‘American Idol’ finale in person, she did the next best thing! Taking to Twitter, the original ‘Idol’ winner shared the most adorable video ever starring her precious 1-year-old daughter, River. And seriously, this sweet clip will MAKE your day!
American Idol received one heck of a goodbye party on April 7 as the hit show aired its last episode. With epic performances from the likes of Carrie Underwood, 33, Jennifer Lopez, 46, and Keith Urban, 48, the series finale was in no short supply of star power. But the most memorable clip of the evening belonged to Kelly Clarkson‘s, 33, baby daughter River Rose Blackstock, 1. As the tot waved goodbye to the iconic show, she just completely melted our hearts!
“Congrats @TrentWHarmon :) @laporsharenae can’t wait 4 ur album too! River wanted 2 say bye #AmericanIdol #IdolFinale,” Kelly captioned the ADORABLE Twitter video featuring her baby girl. The 13-second clip features River Rose waving goodbye to the show that made her mom a star while repeatedly saying “bye.” TOO cute!
But the best part? Little River Rose couldn’t help cracking herself up, and the video ends with the toddler having a total giggle fit. It literally doesn’t get more aw-worthy than that! I mean come on, a laughing baby? That’s gold! And although River’s Idol farewell was hard to compete with, Kelly, who stayed home due to the impending birth of her second baby, gave the show her OWN goodbye — and it proved to be insanely epic in its own way!

The original winner of the show provided not one, but TWO awesome video performances that aired during the finale, in order to ensure that the program went out with the bang she thought it deserved. And boy were her performances unforgettable! The star performed a medley of her most famous hits, leaving the entire audience in tears. But what REALLY gave us the feels was her stunning a cappella version of her famous Idol victory song “A Moment Like This.”
Talk about an emotional evening for Idol fans everywhere. But we have to give it to River Rose, we liked her performance best of all!
How adorable is River Rose, HollywoodLifers? Is this not the cutest video you’ve seen all week?
