Kelly Clarkson's free outdoor concert in Troy, Mich., was canceled after she performed five songs, due to a downpour.

The "American Idol" winner's Friday show was tied to the launch of the Somerset Collection's Microsoft Store. Clarkson joked that whenever she does a show for Microsoft, it always ends up raining.

"Whoo! It's a revival!" she exclaimed in the middle of a performance of "Walk Away," The Detroit News reported.

A gust of wind blew up her skirt in the middle of "Catch My Breath."

"I can't help that!" she said, laughing.

“I’ll stand out here in the rain with you!” she said. “Well, at least we’re not sweating.”

Clarkson exited the stage when conditions became unsafe, telling the audience she would wait out the rain. Five minutes later, an official told the crowd the event was canceled.

No makeup performance has been scheduled.
