Kelly Clarkson is deep into her second pregnancy, and her forthcoming son is forcing her to make some pretty tough decisions. Earlier this week, the "American Idol" OG revealed in an interview that her doctor has advised one tough ultimatum. She has two promotional appearances coming up with the 2016 Grammy Awards and the last season of "American Idol," but she can only go to one of them. Cue the dramatic music.

"I was going to do the Grammys and 'Idol,' and then my doctor was kind of like, I just have such hard pregnancies, flying back and forth to L.A., like if they were closer together, I would've done both, but I had to kind of choose one," she explained.

Even though Clarkson is up for two nominations (Best Pop Solo Performance for "Heartbeat Song" and Best Pop Vocal Album for Piece By Piece), it was pretty obvious that the singer had to choose her old stomping grounds. 

"I obviously chose 'Idol' because it's ending and I was the original winner, so it'd kinda be weird if I wasn't there. I'm unfortunately going to have to miss the Grammys," she said. 

Clarkson is one of the many "Idol" veterans expected to appear on the long-running FOX singing competition, but there's still no confirmation whether or not Simon Cowell will appear.
