    Kelly Clarkson is ringing in the big 3-0 with what we would call one great comeback.

    The season one American Idol winner seemed to be laying low for a while, but lately she's been making headlines with some new hits and projects.

    Clarkson released her fifth studio album, Stronger, in October, which includes the rock-out hit "What Doesn't Kill You" (and it was featured on Glee so you know it's huge) and debuted at No. 2 on the charts, selling 163,000 copies the week of release.

    She also joined a long list of legendary singers who took the stage for VH1 Divas and had the honor of performing at the Super Bowl!

    As if that wasn't enough, she's signed on for a new reality show, Duets, alongside Lionel Richie, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke.

    We are just so gosh-darn proud.
