In many successful lives, there’s one moment people can look back at and identify as a turning point. For Kelly Clarkson, that moment isn’t difficult to figure out at all — if not for American Idol she wouldn’t have all of those No. 1 hits, all of those platinum records, all of those Grammy Awards, and a highly successful talk show that’s already earned seven Daytime Emmy Award nominations. Because of that, she can never, ever forget her first Idol audition, and she told us about encountering judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson for the very first time.
