'American Idol' Finale: Pregnant Kelly Clarkson Absolutely Slays Her Greatest Hits Medley

Thursday night's "American Idol" series finale brought back a lot of amazing memories from the last 14 years, but the show's original winner may have delivered the most nostalgia-inducing moment of the night.

Kelly Clarkson, who couldn't appear live on the final "Idol" show, pre-taped a medley of her incredibly catalog of hits from throughout her career that reminded us just how amazing her hits are.

"Since U Been Gone?" "My Life Would Suck Without You?" "Because of You?"

The list goes on and on, but no other hit triggered our emotions other than the song she ended the medley with: "A Moment Like This," where it all started back in 2002.

Who can forget Clarkson's tear-filled coronation song? It was an instantly iconic moment in pop culture that we know we will never forget, and it's one that Clarkson recreated herself at the end of the medley last night with a beautiful a capella version of the sappy song.
