Kelly Clarkson Remembers 'American Idol' Win 14 Years Later

Can you believe it’s been 14 years since Kelly Clarkson won American Idol?!

The 34-year-old “Piece by Piece” singer took to Twitter to honor the day she won the first season back in 2002.

“14 yrs ago 2day @AmericanIdol opened a door w/such amazing opportunities & experiences 4 me! I am 4ever grateful & blessed! #heresto14more 🎉” Kelly wrote.

In case you don’t remember, Kelly beat Justin Guarini with 58% out of 15.5 million votes cast.

Since then, she’s won three Grammy Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, and four American Music Awards.

Not to mention, Kelly has sold over 25 million albums worldwide!

    The vote was closer than I remembered. I wonder why he didn’t have more success?

    I wonder why you are so obsessed with me that you made 2 Disqus accounts in my name!

    You are truly one vindictive evil person. After you spent 2 days manically cranking out 100 (35 on Saturday and 65 on Sunday) posts from an account you created in my name, you decided to post from your Toni Gee account?

    I see that you are now cranking out posts from the other Gwen (gwen @gwenglanvilleaccount) you switched in my name on Aug 31.

    Today Toni Gee is posting from this account:gwen (@gwenglanvilleaccount)

    Originally Toni Gee had the name Magdelene Cleoa on that account, but on Aug 31 at 4 am he changed the account name from Magdelene Cleao to gwen (@gwenglanville)

    Tally of the number of posts that Toni Gee has made in my name:

    321 posts from the account you made in my name on Aug 21

    77 posts from the account you switched to my name on Aug 31
