Birthday Girl: Kelly Clarkson

To celebrate Kelly Clarkson's 30th birthday, I had planned on posting an epic list of 30 of my favorite performances of hers complete with video clips. Unfortunately, real life got in the way and so instead I just wanted to give the very first American Idol winner a quick birthday shout out by taking a quick look at the great few months she's been having.

She released her fifth studio album Stronger back in October and the title track, the second single, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. She performed the National Anthem at this years Super Bowl to rave reviews and most recently picked up two ACM Awards for her duet with Jason Aldean on country hit "Don't You Wanna Stay" which also garnered her a sixth Grammy Awards nomination. Clarkson appeared as a mentor on The Voice and will repeat that role later this summer on Duets. She recently wrapped up a concert tour to promote the new album as well as to celebrate her 10-year anniversary in the business. She will go on tour again later this year with The Fray.

Once again, Happy Birthday Kelly!
