Remember From Justin to Kelly, the film that put the "hor-" in "horrendous" and starred Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini? For those needing a refresher, it was released in 2003 after Clarkson won the first American Idol. Fox wanted to capitalize on all the hype, even after the 25-episode first season, so they stuffed Clarkson into a movie with the runner-up. Nearly 12 years after the film debuted, Clarkson revealed what she really thinks about From Justin to Kelly. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the magazine asked if it was time for her to burn all copies of the film, which made her laugh. She replied: No, I think I would have to own it first. But that is something I will look into. I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, "My roommate and I used to watch it »
Kelly Clarkson's nanny may lose her job! Not really, but she will definitely annoy her boss if she keeps talking about 2003's From Justin to Kelly. The "Heartbeat Song" singer recently joked to Rolling Stone magazine that 11-month-old River Rose's caretaker is a really big fan of the disastrous flick. "I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, 'My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I'm totally going to show your daughter [...] »
Every star has some career regrets, but it seems like no one is more passionate about hating something than Kelly Clarkson. What did the American Idol winner do that haunts her every single day? She filmed From Justin to Kelly alongside fellow alum Justin Guarini. She regrets the project so much, in fact, that she has joked with her nanny that she would fire her if she ever showed the movie to her daughter River Rose. When asked by Rolling Stone if she would "burn all the existing copies" of it, she responded, "No, I think I would have to own it first. But that is something I will look into." She added, "I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. »
“American Idol” is finally coming to a close. The 15th and final season will premiere January 2016.
While searching for the final “Idol” superstar, the last season will also serve as a “celebratory event,” paying tribute to fourteen seasons of contestants, winners and fans.
Fox TV Group chairman-ceo Gary Newman said it was “not an easy decision” to call it a wrap for “Idol” after much discussion with producers.
“It’s the right time to bring this run to a close,” Newman said in a conference call Tuesday. “We really wanted to do it in a way that felt special and celebratory … and send it off in a way that is as significant as the run it’s had on our network.”
The show will air in its usual Wednesday-Thursday pattern to start »

Fox announced on Monday (May 11) morning that "American Idol" has been renewed for the 2015-16 season, but that next year's installment will be its last. Per the official Fox release, host Ryan Seacrest and all three current judges -- Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr -- will return to "search for the final 'Idol' superstar and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols." Whether you've watched "American Idol" from the beginning and still tune in on a weekly basis or you've looked down your nose at "Idol" for its role in reality-izing network television, it would be foolish not to look at this as the end of a rather major era. Adapted from the British "Pop Idol" format, "American Idol" premiered in the summer of 2002 and developed into a burgeoning sensation, »

Over the course of 14 seasons, American Idol has had its fair share of uncomfortable moments.
Chris Daughtry serving up a “Wait, I got eliminated?” grimace. Paula Abdul critiquing a song Jason Castro was about 45 minutes away from covering. (Fret not, old girl will be back in a judging capacity this summer on Fox!) Danny Gokey trying to out-Adam Adam Lambert — and failing like a 5-year-old taking the AP Physics exam — on “Dream On.”

Kelly Clarkson has been making the press rounds to talk about her latest album, Piece by Piece, but she wasn't just chatting about her music during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday. Kelly played "Plead the Fifth" with Andy and admitted, finally, that she did in fact date her fellow American Idol contestant Justin Guarini. There was speculation that Kelly and Justin, who took first and second place, respectively, on the first-ever season of Idol in 2002, were dating at the time, but she cleared those rumors up saying, "We didn't date during Idol, which everybody thought we were dating. We did date a little bit. Any two people who are thrown together that much . . . I'm just sayin'" They remained close after the successful premiere season of the reality competition, since they went on to star together in the musical From Justin to Kelly. Kelly said of that project, »
Kelly Clarkson has no need to "Plead the Fifth."
The always candid Kelly played Andy Cohen's popular game on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night, when the 32-year-old "Heartbeat Song" singer got defensive about her infamous August 2013 tweet calling out MTV's Video Music Awards performers that year.
"Just saw a couple performances from the Vma's last night. 2 words.... #pitchystrippers," she tweeted.

The legendary love story in "From Justin to Kelly" was the real deal. Kelly Clarkson and her Season One runner-up Justin Guarini followed up their time on "American Idol" with one of the best worst movies ever made, the aforementioned movie musical that took place during Spring Break in Miami. And while the romance wasn't exactly realistic on film, sparks were flying off set. The "Heartbeat Song" singer was on "Watch What Happens Live" last night, where Andy Cohen put her in the hot seat for a round of Plead the 5th -- and that's where the truth about Justin came out. "We didn't date during 'Idol,'" Clarkson said after he asked whether they hooked up. "We did date a little bit. I think any two people that are thrown together that much would date. Guy, girl, 'Timeless' [a duet from their musical], put that song on, you can't fight it!" Cohen also »

Gay or straight, Kelly Clarkson doesn’t care how her kids end up – she just wants them to have their own happily ever after.
In a new interview with ETonline contributor Chris Azzopardi for PrideSource to promote her latest studio album, Piece by Piece, the pop star revealed the very personal reason sexual orientation isn’t an issue when it comes to her kids, particularly 8-month-old River Rose.
“I just hope [River Rose] finds love,” Clarkson says. “It took me a while, man. And there was a lot of heartache throughout those years. You know, as long as she’s happy, I don’t care either way, and neither does my husband. And we have two other kids as well, and we don’t care either way for all of them.”
