Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
With all the buzz surrounding the upcoming "American Idol" finale, it's important to remember how significant the winner's life will change once the show wraps up. When she first auditioned way back in the first season, the 20-year-old Kelly Clarkson was just a girl from Texas with a big voice. Eight years after her victory, Clarkson has put out four full-length albums and has had a sack full of radio hits (including her "American Idol" victory song "A Moment Like This," the rocking "Since U Been Gone" and the sassy "I Do Not Hook Up"). She went from a local girl with talent to a truly international superstar. On Wednesday (May 5), Clarkson arrived at the airport in Taipei in preparation for a series of concerts she will be giving in Taiwan. When Clarkson famously broke down while singing "A Moment Like This" during the first "American Idol" finale (where the line "I can't believe it's happening to me" overwhelmed her), even then she probably never thought she would be greeted by a throng of fans who don't even speak her language.
Clarkson wasn't the only star putting her face in the crowd, as the Black Eyed Peas played a show at O2 Arena in London and Big Boi from Outkast bopped around New York.
