The next week, her single was commercially released and the week of September 22, 2002, Kelly's first single sat on top of the charts at number one, flying 51 spots in ONE week to achieve her first number one hit, proving she definitely deserves the title "American Idol". The previous record for the biggest jump was held by The Beatles for over forty years, shooting to number one with "Love Me Do" from number 27.
A Moment Like This. Kelly's video for "A Moment Like This", released in October 2002 starts out with her walking down a deserted theatre towards a stage. After making it to the stage and singing out to the empty seats, flashbacks of the show are intertwined with her performance. It starts at the very beginning with her audition in Dallas, then making the Top 10, then clips from the show, culminating in the finale when she was crowned THE American Idol.
Her apartment burnt down. Shortly after moving to LA with her best friend, Jessica, for the first time, their apartment burnt down.

It was only a couple of months before her fateful audition for "American Idol: The Search for a Superstar"!
Six Flags. When Kelly was 19, she worked at Six Flags, where she met her best friend, Jessica. Jessica is the reason Kelly even auditioned for "American Idol".

If you watch carefully during the hallway sequence when Sabrina is talking to her mother's wax form, you will see Kelly walk by staring at Sabrina.
