American Idol came to an emotional end on Thursday evening after 15 long seasons. To commemorate the finale, the show's first-ever winner Kelly Clarkson shared an adorable video of her daughter River Rose waving goodbye.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
Congratulating the show's final champion and runner up, the 33-year-old posted a clip on her Twitter featuring her one-year-old bidding the show farewell.

In the 13-second clip, little River sweetly waves goodbye for the camera as she says, "Bye" with a big toothy grin.
While Kelly was not present for the FOX show's finale, she did make an appearance with a pre-taped performance. The children's book author, who took home the Idol crown in 2002, performed a medley of some of her greatest hits including Miss Independent, Since U Been Gone, Because of You, My Life Would Suck Without You and many more.
To top off her nostalgic performance, the Grammy winner belted out A Moment Like This, which she performed on the show's stage after being named the first American Idol winner.
Kelly, who is currently expecting her second child — a boy — with husband Brandon Blackstock, tweeted along as she watched her taped performance with daughter River. She jokingly wrote, "Who's that sweaty, pregnant girl singing?? ....oh snap that's me hahaha!! #ohwell."
She added, "Thnx #AmericanIdol 4 the moment that changed my life & provided w/me a road 2 success & happiness! #blessed."
