Watch Kelly Clarkson receive the “Powerhouse Award” at Thursday’s (Nov 1)  2017 Billboard Women in Music Awards, after a performance of the title track from the American Idol OG singer’s latest album, Meaning of Life.

Introduced by Kelly Rowland, The Voice season 14 coach delivered a stipped down version of the tune supported by just a piano player and a trio of backing vocalists.

After receiving the award, Kelly delivered a speech about the power of women supporting each other, rather than tearing each other down. “I want to lift up and support everyone,” she said, calling out stereotypes that pit women against women. “Accept the fact that there is room for everyone.”

Kelly used the example of the recent American Music Awards where she opened the show performing alongside another powerhouse performer, P!nk. “There’s room for both of us,” she said, calling the experience, “the most powerful event I had in 2017, other than being a mom… I’m a badass mom!”
