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.

How dare you exclude Fantasia. She's undoubtebly the best singer among the 7 winners. Carrie and Kelly may have managed to garner the most media attention, but since Idol, Fantasia's voice has not only tremendously increased in power and range, but her vocal stylings from her polished portamenti to her jazzy improv melismatic embellishments and scatts put her on an entirely different level than the other past winners. She exudes brilliance in every performance and she has the most evocative voice and stage presence which automatically commands the attention of the audience...She's the legend in the making. Kelly is just a rising pop/rock diva and Carrie is just another overrated country singer....And let's not forget Fantasia has had more grammy nominations than any other Idol alumnus.

Kelly is far from begin ok. She does have seven number ones. People can relate to practically all of her song "Because of You" for example (which was number one in the world for two weeks back in '06). Her new single is coming out next month and I hear that her new album is supposed to amazing so just wait.There are probably are some places where Kelly hasn't sang at but Carrie has. There are more places where Kelly has performed where Carrie hasn't. Kelly has performed all over Europe, Australia where Carrie hasn't even gone there yet. Kelly also performed at the Asian VMA's a few years back. And Kelly has probably performed at places here in the states where Carrie has not. And she does breathe really heavily. Wrong again fried. Kelly fricken kicks ass. She has more power and range. I do like Carrie though .

love carrie. it seems like she is always having a number 1 hit She also always has a new song out on the radio Alot of her songs pple can relate to. kelly is ok. She never really has number 1s though and she doesnt have new songs out all the time. There r some places she hasnt sung at yet and carrie has. Carrie has been to my state 2 while kelly has never been here. Also she breathes really heavily during some of her songs.

I only know carrie underwood from ai but ive not actually heard any of her music til recently. But kelly clarkson is an international star but most importantly a great performer. She really knows how to connect with her fans. So im impartial to this arguement. Cant wait 4 the new album :)
