FIRST AMERICAN IDOL
TO WIN A GRAMMY

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first American Idol to win a Grammy?

Ever since it came to televisions everywhere in America during the 2001/2002 television season, American Idol has been doing wonderful things to propel young people’s musical careers and giving unknowns a chance that they never would have had. During the final results show during their premiere season, Kelly Clarkson was announced as the winner of the first American Idol. For this, Clarkson would forever go down in the history books but 3 years later, she would make history again and once again, she would have American Idol, along with her own natural talent, to thank for it.

It was during the 48th Annual Grammy Awards, which were held on February 9, 2006, that Kelly Clarkson also became the first winner from American Idol to win a Grammy. And that night, not only did Clarkson win one award, but two! Winning first in the category for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Kelly Clarkson beat out huge names such as Sheryl Crow, Gwen Stefani, Bonnie Raitt, and Mariah Carey, who was favored to win the category. Later on, Kelly Clarkson then won her second Grammy in the category for Best Pop Vocal Album. In this category, she once again beat out Sheryl Crow and Gwen Stefani along with Fiona Apple and Paul McCartney.

Another American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino, was also nominated at the ceremony for 4 different R&B categories but Fantasia did not take home any awards.
