It was a homecoming for pop star and first American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, who performed a medley of her greatest hits on the finale of the reality show last night.
While other Idol alumni who made an appearance performed on the live broadcast, Clarkson pre-taped hers as she’s currently due to have her second child. Her chills-worthy medley includes “Miss Independent”, “Breakaway”, “Since U Been Gone”, “Because Of You”, “Behind These Hazel Eyes”, “My Life Would Suck Without You”, “Don’t You Wanna Stay”, “Stronger”, “Heartbeat Song”, “Invincible” and “For A Moment Like This”, her coronation song from fourteen years ago.
Watch the video below.
The “Piece By Piece” singer recorded the performance back in February when she appeared on the show as a guest judge.
It’s only suiting to have the first-ever winner on the show again in the final episode of the final instalment (Season 15) of American Idol. She auditioned for the FOX program in 2002 with “At Last” by Etta James. Since her victory, she’s released seven studio albums which earned her three Grammy Awards and twelve nominations, including Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.
