Bill Clinton Photobomb

The former President of the United States , Bill Clinton,  photobombed Kelly Clarkson during the 2013 Presidential InaugurationNeedless to say that Bill Clinton's photobomb went viral making headlines in the UK and across the world!


On January 21, The Hollywood Gossip posted a still shot of Clarkson with Clinton a couple of rows behind her making a face. 

"The former "American Idol" champion impressed anyone with a pulse via her rendition of "My Country Tis of Thee" and, at one point during her performance, was photobombed by Bill Clinton," The Hollywood Gossip reported.

The UK's Daily Mail ran the headline: "Peekaboo! Kelly Clarkson gets "photo bombed" by Bill Clinton as she performs at Obama Inauguration."


The Mail reported: "As the cameras clicked away at the singer, Clinton poked his head out from where he was positioned behind her and gave a cheeky smile. A snap of the 66-year-old "photo bombing" the American Idol star ended up on Twitter and quickly went viral."

A banner headline in the World News section of the National Post screamed: "Bill Clinton photobombs Kelly Clarkson, steals the social media spotlight from Obama on Inauguration Day." 


Bill Clinton's photobomb clearly wasn't intentional so it isn't a traditional "photobomb." Clarkson hasn't commented the viral "photo" on her Twitter account, but she has tweeted about the day and how wonderful the experience was.

"What an honor to be a part of history! Obama's presence was powerful and his words unforgettable. It's a proud day for America!" Kelly wrote on twitter after her performance. She also posted a still of her shaking Barack Obama's hand and claimed: "Maybe the coolest photo I've ever been in... ever!"
