The Saga Continues: Kelly Clarkson Takes Daughter River Rose To Visit ‘American Idol’

9-month-old River Rose is never far from famous mama Kelly Clarkson’s side. The adorable duo have been making the rounds to promote Kelly’s latest album, Piece By Piece, and last night she was able to show her little girl the place where it all began: American Idol.

Kelly shared a super cute photo of River and husband Brandon Blackstock backstage at her old stomping grounds. To make the trip down memory lane complete, the original Idol belted out a killer version of her audition song, Etta James classic “At Last.” Revisiting the tune that launched her career, in front of her new family? Get your hanky ready.

My entourage outside my dressing room at #AmericanIdol today. 🙂 Tune in tonight!
