We’ve always found American Idol Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson to be cute as pie. But these days, our gal seems to be saying no to the desserts and slimming down big time!

When Kelly came onto the Idol scene in 2002 and stole our hearts at 20 years old, her figure was fresh, youthful, and very healthy-looking. Over the past decade, though, while her career has maintained a steady course of success, her weight has fluctuated quite a bit.

But when she took the stage at the Billboard Music Awards yesterday, she looked as radiant and trim as ever.

Could it be the look of love? Kelly has been dating her manager’s son Brandon Blackstock, who also happens to be the stepson of country queen Reba McEntire.

Whatever it is, we’re willing to bet that Kelly’s feeling a little “Stronger” these days!
