Kelly Clarkson must have not looked like herself at the Academy of Country Music awards Sunday because a man mistook her for a seat-filler.

Clarkson performed twice during the awards show, but despite her celebrity status, “some guy” asked her to move from his seat, according to a Page Six report.

The former “American Idol” champion and two-time Grammy winner shared her thoughts of the moment on Twitter: “The greatest thing by far that happened to me tonight was being asked to move because some guy thought I was a seat filler at the ACM’s tonight … literally, it made my night because he was so serious.”

She continued, “I just politely said no hahaha!!” (RELATED: Kelly Clarkson Hopes Her Kids Are ‘Tone-Deaf’ And Don’t Become Musicians: ‘It’s A Hard Industry’)

Can you imagine being as famous as Clarkson and having someone think you were a nobody? This poor guy was probably so embarrassed after asking THE Kelly Clarkson to move seats. Especially after she had just performed not once, but twice during the awards ceremony.

Fortunately for this guy, Clarkson was not a diva about the situation at all. It could have gone way worse for him.
