It's almost time for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

Kelly Clarkson is returning as host for the second year in a row. As fans will recall, the three-time Grammy winner pulled out all of the stops for last year's show. From her epic performances to her incredible fashion ensembles, the "Since U Been Gone" star gave viewers plenty of memorable moments. 

Of course, this came as no surprise. Clarkson has been capturing fans' hearts ever since her American Idol days over a decade ago. While she became famous for her vocals, Clarkson has also been applauded for always keeping it real. In fact, many of her best moments are her candid ones.

Who could forget when she totally fangirled over meeting Meryl Streep at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, or when she was overcome with emotion during her raw performance of "Piece by Piece?"

To see more of her best candid moments, check out the gallery below:
