Kelly Clarkson on Patrick Swayze: ‘He Was Just the Nicest Guy’

Kelly Clarkson performed a free concert in Los Angeles on Monday night, where she shared her thoughts about the passing of Patrick Swayze, and opened up about the blog she wrote criticizing Kanye West for interrupting Taylor Swift's VMA acceptance speech.

"I just found out two seconds ago that Patrick Swayze died, and he was one of the first people that I met right after I won 'Idol,'" Kelly said. "I did this event, and it was a private event, and he was there and he sought me out. I thought it was so cool because obviously 'Dirty Dancing' is everyone's favorite film. He was just the nicest guy. And I just think it’s awesome that you can remember someone that’s actually classy in the industry. Obviously he had a big impact on pop culture."

Watch the video to hear the "American Idol" champ discuss the news that Ellen DeGeneres will replace Paula Abdul as the fourth judge on the hit singing competition.
