Kelly Clarkson celebrated her 20th year anniversary of winning 'American Idol', and she penned an emotional message. She took to her social media platforms to say:
20 years ago today I won American Idol and it forever changed the course of my life. That moment was the door that opened up so much access and opportunity, and creative partnerships that I will be grateful for all of my days. The family and friendships I have created over these 20 years in music and TV are priceless to me. We only get so many trips around the sun and while I am proud and feel abundantly blessed for the successes and failures that I have learned from, I am most proud and grateful for those friends that have become family. Without them I would not be where I am. I would probably not be here at all. Thank you so much to every single person that voted 20 years ago!
