One of music’s most talented and most classy performers celebrates a birthday today.

Yes, Kelly Clarkson is 31!

The original American Idol champion has avoided any kind of scandal or controversy throughout her wildly successful career, choosing to make hits instead of news.

Brandon Blackstock and Kelly Clarkson Throwback

The three-time Grammy winner has sold over 25 million albums and ranked as the 14th best-selling artist of the 2000s.

Recent performances have included a return to the Idol stage this month for “People Like Us” and a rendition of “Don’t Rush” at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

And Kelly’s personal life isn’t in bad shape, either: she’s engaged to Brandon Blackstock!

So send in your very best wishes to this anti-diva now and let’s all hope her career is merely just beginning!
