American Idol Eye Candy: Kelly Clarkson vs. Carrie Underwood

by at . Comments

Before a new American Idol gets crowned in two weeks, we have a pressing question:

Who is your favorite American Idol winner of all-time?

Carrie on Idol

We'll assume that Fantasia, Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks aren't even in the running. And, remember, Chris Daughtry and Clay Aiken didn't actually win their respective seasons.

So this leaves two options for fans of the FOX reality show: original Idol victor, Kelly Clarkson? Or season four's champion, Carrie Underwood?

Each has picked up Grammy Awards, although only Underwood has picked up an All-Pro NFL quarterback. It's a close call.

Perhaps fans will want to wait for the new Kelly Clarkson album to come out in July before making a decision. But if you have a preference right now, let us know.

And, yes, we wish Katharine McPhee had won last year, too. Go blame The Soul Patrol for that one.

KELLY CLARKSON a DIVA in VH1 this year. kelly will be guest judge in AI 9, but carrie? it proves that kelly has a better vocal and album than carrie.
in my country (indonesia) everyone just know carrie, but they don't know the album and the songs,
kelly? everyone knows kelly and the songs, hits, also the album. so in worlwide, kelly clarkson more succes, more famous, better vocal than carrie.


hey all of you think. it doesnt matter who the prettier but just take not who does make more sell of album from the two and more recognition. that goes with carrie underwood. i like kelly but this competition is about who's the best and in this industry if you not making a good money even how good are you you are still not a winner. thats what simon means and IT factor that an audiance and listener love. ill go with carrie


If you say Kelly songs suck well you don't appreciate real music then, music that comes from the heart.


first off country music is the most popular genre in america so the fact that Kelly is more pop means absolutely nothing..Carrie is ten times better looking and kelly clarksons songs suck...any Carrie will out sell kelly by 10+ million in the next few years


Carrie Underwood!!! Kelly's still good, but Carrie is better!!!


LOVE Kelly!!! Hate Carrie. She sounds to stuffy and seems very diva like. The whole fame thing totally changed her for the worst. I like that Kelly stayed true to herself and didn't become all hollywood like Carrie. She looks normal and she is so down to earth and her voice is still the BEST! she's just a natural and damn good at it!




kelly is the best! you know, why americn idl success? cause the first winner is kelly.
every country have idol show like amrcn idol, u know why? cause kelly is the first americn idol winner, though actually idol show from popidol not AI, but it cause kelly! every performences as guest star on AI, all judges always give standing ovation for kelly. for carrie? no!! it proves that kelly is the best alumn AI! kelly, you're so rock!!


Kelly is more mature in terms of song interpretation. Whenever I hear Carrie sing, I get confused who's singing because she's got a very nondescript voice that doesn't stand out. And the way she interprets her songs are very bland and very typical, unlike Kelly who's had many many performances that just makes you tear up watching. And Kelly's voice is special too - the tone, the rasp, the range - it's just exciting and moving to listen to.


No it's Carrie that can never live up to Carrie Shyane. Kelly is going to produce more #1's with new record which is going to better than Carrie's new one. Kelly only has a few more in us sales but Kelly blows her out of the water in worldwide sales sorry babe. Heck with the 10 mil. that Carrie has sold worldwide with both of her albums Kelly sold that much with only Breakaway ha! Has Carrie ever broken a billboard record twice-no heck not even once. But Kelly has which she first broke the biggest leap to #1 for a song back in 2002 with 'A Moment Like This' jumping from #52 to #1 breaking a record that was held by the freackin' Beatles and she held that record for five freckin' years until Maroon 5 broke then not long after that it was broken four more times before Kelly claimed that title back this year with 'My Life Would Suck Without You' which jumped from #98 to #1. Ha beat that!
