A look at the original 'American Idol' queen's highest-ranking songs.
In the nearly 15 years since winning the inaugural season of American Idol, the Texas native has landed 26 songs on the Hot 100, including three No. 1s. She kicked off her chart history with her Idol coronation single, "A Moment Like This," which spent two weeks at No. 1 in October 2002. She subsequently reigned with "My Life Would Suck Without You" (for two weeks, in 2009) and "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" (three weeks, 2012).
Clarkson has been honored with three Grammy Awards, including two thanks to her sophomore album, 2004's Breakaway. On the Billboard 200 chart, she has notched nine titles, with three hitting (and debuting at) No. 1: her first set, 2003's Thankful; 2009's All I Ever Wanted; and 2015's Piece by Piece. Her hits have also spanned across genres, with five No. 1s on Dance Club Songs and one on Hot Country Songs.
