Kelly Clarkson was all of us at the 2018 Golden Globes. The American Idol alum and Grammy winner attended the awards show for the first time on Sunday, January 7, and after chatting with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet, flipped out with excitement while running into idol Meryl Streep

As Ryan was helping Clarkson down the stairs, Meryl was making her way up to be interviewed. 

“Oh my God!” Kelly exclaimed. “That’s Meryl!”

Ryan, who at first thought Clarkson had tripped, then introduced the two and Clarkson adorably asked Meryl “Can I meet you? I’ve adored you since I was, like, 8.”

Meryl, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for The Post, walked the red carpet with Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-director of the Caring Across Generations Campaign, as part of the #TimesUp movement
