On September 4, 2002, at age 20, Kelly Clarkson won the first ever American Idol, a talent show that would soon become the most successful program in the United States, defeating Justin Guarini in the final. She performed with the ballad A Moment Like This (written for the winner of the program and then released in on the first album, Thankful).
