I can honestly say, thanks to you, I'm here today, genuinely, because you validated what we did. Because if we didn't find a star, there's no point in doing these shows.

Clarkson reflected:

I feel very lucky and fortunate 'cause I know a lot of talented people that love singing and are amazing at it and writing songs and even talk show hosts. I think a lot of people could do that. I just feel very fortunate that I get the chance, and there are dreams you didn't know you had and they end up happening and you feel super-blessed.
