WATCH | Kelly Clarkson’s Full ‘American Idol’ Audition that Never Aired

Clarkson’s Full Audition Was Edited Short Due To Time

Thanks to a fan who obviously loves Kelly Clarkson, we can now enjoy her full American Idol audition. Originally, only part of the audition aired on TV and was edited short due to time.

The clip shows Kelly twirling to show off her homemade blue jean top to Ryan Seacrest as she waits outside before going in front of the judges. She sings “At Last” by Etta James and for the second song she sings “Express Yourself”, a song that Idol judge Randy Jackson helped Madonna with.

Clarkson then suggests that Jackson try out for American Idol, which he did and got good reviews from Clarkson and the other Idol judges. As Clarkson is given her ticket to Hollywood, Simon Cowell tells Clarkson, “tell Ryan out there to redo his highlights.”
