It's Time We Appreciate "From Justin To Kelly" Because It's Truly A National Treasure

Broke: Lady Gaga and Beyoncé's "Telephone." Woke: Kelly Clarkson and Anika Noni Rose's "Madness."

The year is 2003. You're excited because American Idol's winner and runner-up — Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini — are starring in a masterpiece otherwise known as From Justin to Kelly.

I personally voted for Justin Guarini, but I was a wee babe blinded by looks. I have since learned the error of my ways and recognize Kelly Clarkson as my American Idol.

Does the film have low ratings? Yes. But, now that it's 2021, I think it's time that we reclaim how good this movie was.

I must admit, I was sippin' on the haterade, but my friend Alyssa made us watch it this past weekend and I've already inquired about how soon is too soon before we rewatch it.

It's the full package! We got dope bops...

I'm disappointed they never made a follow-up to FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY called FROM CLAY TO RUBEN, and instead of spring break it took place at Mardi Gras.
