  • Kelly Clarkson was the first person to win American Idol 14 years ago. On Thursday night, she performed at the American Idol finalists’ party at the London West Hollywood hotel. It seemed fitting for the first American Idol to perform for the last finalists’ party ever. This season marks the last for American Idol. Kelly Clarkson’s performance on Thursday night, in celebration of the end, went viral.

    Singing her hit song, “Piece by Piece,” Kelly Clarkson, who with husband Brandon Blackstock is expecting her second child, got choked up.

    Since winning American Idol, Kelly Clarkson has gone on to release seven studio albums. She has won 12 Grammy Awards.

    Keith Urban took to Twitter to express his thoughts following Kelly Clarkson’s performance.

    Even Ryan Seacrest chimed in.

    Can you believe it’s been 14 years since Kelly Clarkson won American Idol? Don’t you love that she returned to her roots to perform one last time?
