Former American Idol Judges Reunite on Kelly Clarkson Show

Original American Idol Judges Praise Kelly Clarkson's Iconic Final Performance From 2002

Gather 'round, American Idol fans, because Kelly Clarkson just gave us some heartwarming content. On Wednesday, the 37-year-old singer reunited with former judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson on The Kelly Clarkson Show to reminisce about their time on American Idol's very first season 17 years ago. "I actually genuinely do not believe we would be sitting here today if you hadn't entered the show," Simon said before recalling Kelly's powerful final performance of "A Moment Like This." "It was a game-changer," Paula added. Kelly wasn't too sure if she had that big of an impact, but (*whispers*) we all know she did. Above, watch the adorable quartet talk more about their 2002 journey and how far they've come since!
