American Idol creator Simon Fuller was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in celebration of his 25-year career.

Not only did he create one of the most influential reality television shows in history, but he’s also managed the Spice Girls, Amy Winehouse, soccer player David Beckham, and Idol winners Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and David Cook, among many others.

Upon receiving the star, Fuller said, “Whenever I see that star, I won't see my name, I'll see all names of the people I've worked (with) and all those amazing artists and people that have helped me achieve this stuff."

Joining Fuller at the momentous ceremony were current Idol judges Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, Victoria Beckham, Carrie Underwood, and Kelly Clarkson.

“Simon has been our manager, business partner, and close friend for 15 years. His loyalty, integrity, and humility make him truly unique,” Victoria and David Beckham told The Hollywood Reporter in a joint statement.
