Kelly Clarkson had a blast at the Grammy Awards but that was just one stop in a whole weekend of partying! The Duets mentor and American Idol alum enjoyed a spot of honor in the annual Mardi Gras Parade…and was able to share the day with fiance Brandon Blackstock! Talk about a lucky lady!
Winning a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album is certainly a big deal (as is photobombing Ellen Degeneres during the awards ceremony), but it was by no means Kelly Clarkson’s only accomplishment of the past weekend. Before she got all gussied up for the Grammy Awards, Kelly headed to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. And she wasn’t just any old spectator attending the parade — Kelly had been specially chosen as the Grand Marshal!
Setting off a weekend of festivities, Kelly Clarkson tweeted on Saturday, “I’m the Grand Marshal of Mardi Gras!!! Most fun ever!!!!!” She included an Instagram picture that showed the view from her esteemed position on the float. Shortly thereafter, the singer posted a second Instagram photo featuring a fan holding up a sign that read, “Keep calm and Kelly on!”
To kick off Grammy Sunday, Kelly added yet another Mardi Gras update to her Twitter page: “We had so much fun leading the Mardi Gras parade! We’re bringing sexy back…” This post also included an Instagram picture, and this one included both Kelly and her fiance! The two looked like they were having a blast, decked out in sunglasses and wide smiles.
Sounds like it was a great weekend for Kelly! You really can’t beat a Grammy and the Mardi Gras Parade all in a 48-hour period!
