My Favorite Past American Idol Moments And Winners


ABC's "American Idol" - April 12, 2019 - Arrivals

The finale of American Idol is this Sunday night - and if you've been following along this season you KNOW this talent is absolutely incredible.

A winner will be named out of the finale three - Grace Kinstler, Chayce Beckham and Willie Spence - on Sunday night, live coast to cast at 5pm pacific.

In preparation for the big finale, I thought what better time to take a look back at some of the biggest stars and moments to come out of American Idol than now?!

I think my all-time favorite American Idol winner is a CLASSIC: the original! Kelly Clarkson.

Not only does Kelly have some ICONIC hits over the years, but she also now has her own talk show - The Kelly Clarkson Show - and she is a judge on The Voice.

One of my favorite Ryan Seacrest moments is when he surprised this 7 year old super fan... obviously. How can you not LOVE this sweet moment with Wyatt where he got a tour of the 'Idol' set and even came on stage during the show.

As for one of the all-time best winning moments of American Idol, I think that hands-down goes to the moment that Carrie Underwood won!

Not only did Carrie seem entirely SHOCKED by her win, but the hairstyle and outfit she wore became iconic with her win as well.

She was just a girl from Oklahoma who had no idea what was about to happen next, and I think THAT is what American Idol is all about!

What is your all-time favorite moment from American Idol history? There are so many incredible performances, winners and moments combined that I cannot pick just one.

Yap with me below so we can chat about the BEST Idol moments of the last 19 years (and yes! it's really been 19 years of Idol!)
