Kelly Clarkson performs incredible medley of hits on last ever episode of American Idol

By Will Stroude

Kelly Clarkson reminded the world why she remains the best American Idol winner of all time during the show’s final ever episode last night (April 7).

The 33-year-old closed the 15th and final season of the US reality show juggernaut – which she won way back in 2002 upon the show’s inception – with an incredible medley of some of her biggest ever hits.

And boy does she have plenty.

In order, Kelly performed: ‘Miss Independent’, ‘The Trouble with Love’, ‘Breakaway’ ‘Since U Been Gone’, ‘Because of You’, ‘Walk Away’, ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’, ‘Already Gone’, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’, ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’, ‘Invincible’, ‘A Moment Like This’.

KC was in typically self-effacing form following the performance, joking about the “sweaty, pregnant” girl on stage before posting an adorable video of her daughter River bidding adieu to the programme.
