Simon Cowell: I wouldn’t be here today if Kelly Clarkson hadn’t been so successful as the singer is getting a Walk of Fame star

Simon Cowell said he “wouldn’t be here today” if Kelly Clarkson hadn’t been so successful as the singer was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The music mogul said Clarkson is “one of the most loyal and talented” people he’s helped throughout his career, speaking at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Monday.

Clarkson rose to fame after winning the inaugural series of popular US singing competition American Idol in 2002, where Cowell served as a judge.

He was joined by fellow judges from the original series Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul, the latter of whom also praised Clarkson before her star was revealed.

“I remember the day we met you. Not only do I remember your voice, I remember your personality,” Cowell told Clarkson.

“I didn’t know at that point how good you are, I just liked you and am so grateful.

“I can sincerely thank you for being here today, sincerely I swear to God.

“Because you’ve validated what we’ve done — if we haven’t found a star, there’s no point in doing these shows. And I could never predict what would happen.
