Immediately following last year's ceremony, ET exclusively learned that the singer had to have surgery to remove her appendix. Clarkson, who had been suffering from a painful bout of appendicitis the week prior, flew right home to Los Angeles from Las Vegas immediately after the awards show and had a procedure the following morning.

Clarkson tweeted about her experience after her surgery, tweeting, "Not gonna lie.... I may or may not have broken down in tears after the show from pain."

"BUT thanks 2 all the amazing people @ Cedars-Sinai I flew home directly after the event, nailed the surgery early this morning, & feeling awesome now!" she wrote. "Bye bye appendix #TheShowMustGoOn."

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards will air April 29 at 8 p.m. PT/ET on NBC.
