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 ๐ŸŽ‰” Kelly wrote.
