The old American Idol gang was back together to celebrate Kelly Clarkson’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star.
Kelly Clarkson, 40, was honored on Monday with a star on the famous walkway and was joined by Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson for the special occasion. The original set of judges on the popular singing contest, the trio posed for pics alongside Kelly as the show’s first winner proudly held her plaque aloft.
In a hilarious fashion that rolled back the years, Simon even called out Paula for turning up late to the ceremony – something he’d often do during their time on the show.
Kelly was crowned the show’s winner in 2002, and since winning the show, she’s gone on to be a well-decorated pop star, with huge hits such as Since U Been Gone, Breakaway, and Because of You.
She revealed her star lies in the middle of Deadpool and Harry Potter and posted a picture of her kneeling on the star on Instagram. She wrote alongside the snap: “Thank you so much @NBC, @americanidol, @atlanticrecords, @kellyclarksonshow, @nbcthevoice, @creativeartistsagency, my personal team/crew, my band, my friends and family, and all the fans that came out today at The Walk of Fame ceremony.
“It meant so much to have you all there, and it was so cool to celebrate with you all! Here’s to the next 20 years!! By the way, my star is between Harry Potter and Deadpool. I dare anyone to top that!”
