Look back at photos of Kelly Clarkson performing on stage, hitting the red carpet and more over the years.
Kelly Clarkson was the original winner of the very first American Idol in 2002. She has since gone on to become a Grammy winner, a global superstar, and one of the most versatile recording artists in the music industry. She’s conquered pop as well as rock, country, and soul. Kelly found love with music manager Brandon Blackstock, and they married in a Tennesse ceremony in 2013. The couple has gone on to have two children, daughter River Rose and son Remington in addition to Bradnon’s two kids from a previous marriage, who Kelly loves as her own. Unfortunately, Kelly and Brandon decided to end their relationship in 2020. Their divorce was finalized, and Kelly filed a lawsuit against him for the commissions he earned from business deals with her.
Kelly released her latest album Chemistry in 2023, and she hosts The Kelly Clarkson Show on NBC. Keep scrolling through the gallery for more photos of Kelly.
