Nobody’s gone through more transformations than Kelly Clarkson, the very first American Idol winner. Sure, we’ve seen Carrie Underwood grow and polish her look, but her changes were never as drastic as Kelly’s.

The video above shows Kelly’s look through the years, from dark-haired with chunky highlights to a blond bob and everything in between. It’s fun watching Kelly morph; we forgot she’s tried out so many different hairstyles!

Kelly’s life is a lot different now than when she took home the first Idol title. She’s gotten married, released a billion chart-topping albums (or eight. Whatever), and now, she’s pregnant with her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock.

“There’s something very cool yet very creepy about a baby moving inside your belly,” the mom-to-be has said about her daughter, who should arrive literally any time now. “Regardless, I’m pretty sure she’s gonna be a gymnast.”

Seeing Kelly’s transformation from fresh-faced Idol winner to beautiful, mature mama has made us so excited to see this year’s crop of contestants in the future. Only a few more weeks until we find out who our 2014 winner is!

Which look of Kelly’s was your favorite? Do you think she looked better then or now?
