Kelly Clarkson with 100 Billboard Number Ones
When you tune in to 99.1 WFMK, you can always hear a Kelly Clarkson song on the air. Kelly was the first American Idol Winner when the show debuted roughly 14 years ago. She to this day, is one of my favorite singers and there is a reason for that.
Kelly Clarkson made pop culture history when she became the first American Idol winner in 2002. Now, 14 years later, she's become the first American Idol contestant to score 100 Billboard number ones.
Her song that you recently heard on American Idol called "Piece by Piece" has just hit number one on two charts, Digital Songs and Pop Digital Songs, giving her the triple digit number of chart toppers. Billboard counts all national and domestic music charts in their overall tally.
