One of the many moments from Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards was a hug between Kelly Clarkson and Simon Cowell.
Clarkson won the first season of American Idol where Simon was one of the original judges on the show.
Clarkson was the host of the BBMA's and had just finished performing when Cowell came out to introduce the next act. The two embraced and Cowell said of Clarkson's performance, "That was bloody fantastic. What can I say? I am very proud of you."
