“That was bloody fantastic. What can I say?” said Cowell, the former American Idol judge, who was at the show to introduce Camila Cabello’s performance, said of Clarkson’s show-stopping set.

“I’m very proud of you,” he added.

Clarkson and Cowell first met on American Idol back in 2002 when Clarkson bested Justin Guarini for the season one title.
