Kelly Clarkson blew fans away on the first season of "Idols" in 2002. The show launched her to fame after she won the entire competition.

17 years after her win, the Grammy winner is expanding her career and experimenting with new avenues. She's dabbling in the talk show world and launching "The Kelly Clarkson Show." The show will premiere on September 9, 2019.

For her first season, Clarkson is going back to the root of her fame. She is gathering up former "Idols" judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson as well as the runner-up from her season Justin Guarini,

“Just seeing how she’s done as an artist and now how she’s progressed on TV, not everyone’s like this by the way,” Cowell, 59, said of Clarkson, 37, at "America’s Got Talent" taping.

“She is the most loyal, nice person, I mean genuinely, she is how she is off-camera as she is on-camera,” Cowell continued. “She doesn’t need to be told what to do, she knows exactly what she’s doing. And she’s a great person. She’s real, sweet, funny, a great girl. We’re lucky we found Kelly on the first season of Idol. I don’t think I would be standing here today.”
