  • Kelly Clarkson's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was unveiled on Tuesday
  • Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson attended the ceremony
  • The singer also celebrated her "American Idol" win 20 years ago on Instagram

Kelly Clarkson literally cemented her legacy in the music industry by getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

For the momentous event at the historic landmark in Los Angeles, the 40-year-old singer was joined by the original "American Idol" judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, The Blast reported.

Before having her own talk show and selling out concerts and albums, Clarkson competed in "American Idol" two decades ago and became the first-ever winner of the franchise.

So when it was time for the "Breakaway" hitmaker to witness the unveiling of her very own star on the Walk of Fame, the trio of judges showed up to extend their support. Cowell, Abdul and Jackson posed for photos with Clarkson when she was presented with a framed plaque of her new star.

To celebrate the milestone, Clarkson took to Instagram to share a snap of her kneeling before her star during the unveiling ceremony. The TV host smiled in front of the camera, rocking an all-black ensemble.

"Thank you so much @NBC, @americanidol, @atlanticrecords, @kellyclarksonshow, @nbcthevoice, @creativeartistsagency, my personal team/crew, my band, my friends and family, and all of the fans that came out today at The Walk of Fame ceremony," she wrote.

The "Since U Been Gone" singer continued, "It meant so much to have y'all there, and it was so cool to celebrate with y'all! Here's to the next 20 years. By the way, my star is between Harry Potter and Deadpool ... I dare anyone to top that!"

Aside from the Walk of Fame milestone, Clarkson also recently celebrated her 20th year in the industry since winning "American Idol." Earlier this month, she shared a lengthy letter expressing her gratitude to the show that "forever changed the course of my life."

She also did not forget to give a shoutout to all the people who believed in her and voted for her to win the competition 20 years ago. The singer wished them "happiness."

Meanwhile, Clarkson has officially left "The Voice." Monday's premiere of the singing competition's 22nd season saw Camila Cabello replacing her on the panel of coaches.

Ahead of the premiere, Clarkson revealed that she voluntarily decided to skip Season 22 to make time for her family. She revealed that she texted her fellow coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and John Legend, and they understood her decision.
