Kelly Clarkson Reveals the Song That 'Almost Killed Me': 'I Had to Let It Go Like Elsa'

Jon Bon Jovi appeared on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' on Thursday ahead of his album release

Even karaoke queen Kelly Clarkson stumbles from time to time.

In a clip from Thursday's episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the "Breakaway" singer revealed that Bon Jovi's hit song "Blaze of Glory" "almost killed me" — and explained why.

"Not even cause I can't sing it. I just can't read, whatever," she said.

"I grew up on that song. I know that song but in my rehearsal I messed it up like a gazillion times," Clarkson, 42, later explained.

Adding, "Not even cause I wasn't hitting the notes. I just couldn't read. I just kept saying the wrong words. It got so ridiculous I had to let it go like Elsa just for a minute and then I had someone come rescue me."

In a hilarious clip from the rehearsal, Clarkson said that she "let her learning disability kick in" after messing up the song the first time. After another screw up, she let out a curse word and yelled in frustration as she continued to mess up a few more tries.

"Come on Clarkson," she said, before Jon Bon Jovi himself walks into the room and she gives him a big hug.

"Come on girlfriend," the rocker said to her after she confessed she "can't get the words right."

"Blaze of Glory" was written for the film Young Guns II and it won the Golden Globe for best original song in 1991.

Bon Jovi, 62, appeared on the show ahead of the release of his new album Forever on Friday. During a sit-down interview with Clarkson, the singer-songwriter revealed love notes his wife Dorothea wrote to him in his high school yearbook.

"John, write a sequel to 'Bobby's Girl' but name it 'She's Johnny's Now,'" the note read.

"It was a song I had written called 'Bobby's Girl,' one of the first original songs I had written. She was dating my buddy Bobby. He went off to join the service as did my other two best friends and they all joined the Navy," Bon Jovi, who recently starred in the Hulu docuseries Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story, said.

He continued, "It was my senior year of high school and I just fell in love with the girl sitting next to me in history class."

In a recent cover story interview with PEOPLE, Bon Jovi looked back on his 40 years of rock stardom.

“The biggest thing I learned there was the bigger the star, the nicer the person,” he said. “It was the Rolling Stones who would hold the door open for you when you were coming in with the burgers and the coffee.”

Then, within a few years, he went from running errands to releasing releasing his eponymous band’s breakout hit “Runaway."

“I was willing to outwork everybody — I think that’s what it came down to,” said Bon Jovi. “I definitely wasn’t the best at anything. I was just the hardest working, and it was nothing more than the desire to get better every day.”
