The singer effortlessly sabotaged Getty photographer Christopher Polk's would-be flawless shot of celebrity couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi with a wacky finger-pointing gesture to the delight of Kelly Clarkson fans and photobomb fans everywhere.

But what was without a doubt the best image of the 2013 Grammy Awards, the photobomb was not Clarkson's only big win of the night. The "American Idol" alumni also took home the Best Pop Vocal Album award for "Stronger."

In her charmingly awkward speech, Clarkson ran down her list of thank yous before saying.

"And my fiancé, who is sexy tonight. I did not think I was going to win. Thank you!"

Back in December, took to Twitter to announce her engagement to Brandon Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager and Reba McEntire's stepson.

"I'M ENGAGED!!!!!" Clarkson tweeted. "I wanted y'all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever."

Clarkson also performed at the 55th annual Grammy Awards. The photobomb master paid tribute to paying tribute to the Lifetime Achievement Award winners Patty Page and Carole King by performing their songs "The Tennessee Waltz" and "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman."

With such a big Grammy night for the pop star, photobombing was presumably not at the top of her list of priorities. Some fans wondered if the photobomb was a tribute to the Bill Clinton classic photobomb pictured above, from President Barack Obama's second inauguration.

Last month when that photobomb blew up all over the internet, Clarkson was ticked.

"I loved it," she told Minneapolis station BUZ'N@102.9 in Minneapolis.

Clarkson described even wanting to retaliate.

"We saw him [Clinton] at the Washington White House reception thing afterwards," she said. "And Brandon and I were dying to get a picture of me standing two people behind him, checking him out from close up. We were going to put [the photos] both side-by-side and tweet them...we couldn't get near him, because there were so many politicians surrounding him, obviously he's Bill Clinton. But yeah, we were dying to do that."

If her 2013 Grammy night pose was Clarkson's attempt to one up the Bill Clinton photobomb, then mission accomplished Kelly.
