Happy birthday to Kelly Clarkson, the first “American Idol” winner — Watch her “Idol” audition from 2002

Kelly Clarkson turns 33 today, but 13 years ago she was a charmingly awkward 20-year-old from Texas who probably had no idea she would soon become one of the most famous singers in the world. Watch her audition from the first season of American Idol and you can see the basic qualities that took her to where she is today — a bubbly personality and a powerhouse voice.

And don’t forget, Kelly’s coming to Key Arena on August 12. Tickets here.
