American Idol Winners From Season 1-9

Season 1 – Kelly Clarkson
Born in April 1982, Kelly Clarkson was the first ever to win the American Idol award in the year 2002. Nearly 50 million people had tuned in to watch this girl take the Idol crown for the first time. The other runner up in that season was Justin Guarinin.

A person who has been to the American Idol  and had even won the title, the first important thing that they get is publicity. Not only the winners, even those who never make it to the top rank, win some publicity and have a huge number of fans following them. Besides this, some might even get an opportunity to work in some good show or company or maybe with a good music director. More below are the list of American Idol Winners from season 1-9.

Season 2 – Ruben Studdard
Born in September 1978, Ruben Studdard was nicknamed ‘Velvet Teddy Bear’ by the judges. He was the second one to win the American Idol in the year 2003. He defeated Clay Aiken by 134,000 votes. Ruben went ahead to make 4 studio albums after winning this award.

Season 3 – Fantasia Barrino
