She became the first artist in history to top each of Billboard’s pop, adult contemporary, adult pop, country, and dance charts.

Billboard has hailed Clarkson as “one of pop music’s greatest singers”, and honored her with the Powerhouse Award for her vocals, while VH1 ranked her nineteenth on their list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music.
