"You're going to Hollywood!" became a universal phrase back in 2002 when a little vocal competition show premiered on Fox. The show was called American Idol, ever heard of it? Idol has been the starting point for some of today's most successful artists; from Kelly Clarkson to Carrie Underwood to Jordin Sparks! These artists are now snagging Grammy Awards left and right, ranking high on the Billboard charts, and selling out shows. It's pretty wild to think that at one time, they were timid singers who were nervous to perform in front of the one and only Simon Cowell. Well, these musicians took a leap of faith, waited in line for hours, and eventually took home the title of American Idol. 

After 14 years and 15 seasons of the hit show, this year, we are finally saying goodbye to American Idol. In honor of the shows major success, the team is welcoming back Idol's very first winner, Kelly Clarkson to sit beside judges, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr, and Keith Urban to guest judge on tonight's episode. We were so excited to hear about Kelly's return to the show that we thought it would be fun to pull together all of the past winners, and share their very first audition for the show!
