Kelly Clarkson Picture - TeenNick Rocks Out

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has come a long way since winning the first season of American Idol. This performance, recorded live at the historic KOKO nightclub in London, features many of Kelly's biggest hits, including her number one single, "My Life Would Suck Without You."

Kelly was born in Fort Worth, Texas, and grew up in Burleson, a Fort Worth suburb. After winning the American Idol competition in 2002, Kelly released her first album, Thankful, and had her first number one hit, "A Moment Like This." In 2004, she released Breakaway, which included the singles "Since U Been Gone," "Behind These Hazel Eyes," and "Because of You." (Fun fact: Kelly's hit "Breakaway" was co-written by Avril Lavigne!) Kelly released her third album My December in 2007, and her fourth, All I Ever Wanted, in 2009. Kelly has won many awards for her work, including two Grammys and a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award.
