American pop star Kelly Clarkson, who won the first season of the renowned singing competition American Idol in 2002, will perform at the finale of this year’s Miss Vietnam pageant, the contest’s organizers said on its website on Thursday.

The final night of the biennial pageant is scheduled to take place on December 6 at Vinpearl Phu Quoc Resort on the southern island of Phu Quoc.

It will also be broadcast live on Vietnamese national channel VTV1.

At the event, Clarkson will perform hits that have helped her gain a huge number of fans across the globe.

According to the organizers, the Vietnamese beauty contest is intended to put Phu Quoc, dubbed Vietnam’s tourism haven, on the map of local and international pageants.

Born in 1982 in Texas, Kelly Clarkson rose to fame after winning the American Idol 2002 reality show with her strong and passionate voice, going on to become one of the most successful winners of the program.

Over the last 12 years, she has had a series of international hits,  including “Because of You,” “Since You’ve Been Gone,” “Don’t Waste Your Time,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” “My Life Would Suck Without You,” “Stronger,” “Mr. Know It All,” and more recent songs like “People Like Us” and “Catch My Breath.”

Her music video for “Stronger” became a sensation in Vietnam in 2011 because it featured a group of Vietnamese youngsters dancing to the song, among numerous scenes of people dancing in other countries.

Clarkson's musical work has also received many awards, including Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, and American Country Awards.

This year, Miss Vietnam is being jointly organized by Tien Phong (Vanguard) newspaper and the People’s Committee of Kien Giang Province – located in the Mekong Delta – with the support of Tien Phong Joint Stock Company, Ho Chi Minh City’s Golden Lotus Construction and Investment Joint Stock Company, and Vinpearl Joint Stock Company.

Besides upholding the same regulations from previous years, Miss Vietnam 2014 will tighten its rules in terms of contestants’ marital status, as beauties are required to be single.

The contest has also decreased its minimum height requirement to 1.62m from 1.65m, allowing more women to apply in an effort to increase submissions.

Dang Thu Thao, from the southern province of Bac Lieu, was crowned in the 2012 edition.
