Eleven years ago, “American Idol” alum Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini starred in the tour de force musical comedy film From Justin to Kelly and the world was never the same.

 

First of all, remember Kelly and Justin?

They were winner and runner-up on the inaugural season of “American Idol.”

They were also possibly lovers…

 

The lines between contestants, friends, and lovers were constantly blurred.

So Hollywood was like, “Let's make a movie about THAT!”

 

And from that will-they-won't-they reality show union, the masterpiece From Justin to Kelly was born.

It tells the story of Kelly, a Texas girl who just wants to SING!

Her friends convince her to go away with them for a rowdy spring break trip in Miami!

They do non-specific “islander” dance numbers.

And meet up with Justin and his college bros!

During an elaborate song and dance routine, Justin and Kelly fall in love, because they are both good at singing.

But it’s spring break and everyone’s supposed to be having flings! Not relationships!

 

So Kelly goes back to dancing on her own.

And Justin parties with his boy band-looking group of bros.

And Kelly flirts with random hot beach-goers.

But Justin can’t get Kelly off his mind!

And wins her back with the power of song and dance!

 

They kiss and everything is all right in the world.

But not before performing one more dance routine to solidify their place as lovers and performers.

Get it Kel Kel.
