The best of moment of the 2018 Golden Globes happened on the red carpet -- it was the beautiful moment in which Kelly Clarkson met her idol Meryl Streep. Seriously, at that point, everyone could have gone home, because there was no topping it.
Clarkson was on the red carpet next to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest on Sunday when she spotted the legendary actress. Immediately, the multi-Grammy winner morphed into a fangirl, nearly tripping down the stairs and then pointing out the obvious.
"That's Meryl. That's Meryl Streep," she told Seacrest in disbelief.
Her reaction only got more priceless from there. She called down the stairs to Streep, asking her, "Can I meet you? I'm such a fan! ... I've adored you since I was, like, 8."

And, of course, fans were living for it, too. People wrote that Clarkson's reaction was pure, relatable, and all-around heart-warming.

Kelly Clarkson: "I hear you can drink at this event...OMG that's Meryl Streep! Can I meet you, Meryl?"
This is why Kelly Clarkson won the first blockbuster season of American Idol and why she's the only winner America still cares about. ❤️
