This would explain why we love Kelly Clarkon and Carrie Underwood.

Aside from the natural talent of American Idol's two most successful champions, both these beauties have shown a penchant for fun and creativity. They are clearly enjoying their run in the spotlight, as evidenced last week by Clarkon's awesome cover of Eminem.

Now, Underwood has also stepped outside of her typical country genre, going all heavy mental on fans in Ontario this week at the Boots and Hearts Music Festival in Bowmanville.

Watch Carrie belt out a version of "Sweet Child O'Mine" now.

They may both dominate the country music scene, but Carrie Underwood wants to make one thing clear: she is no Taylor Swift. And vice versa.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz last week, the former American Idol champion took issue with any comparisons between the successful stars, saying:

"I feel like we're definitely completely different artists... I'm a little bit older than she is and I feel like our music's completely different and if anyone tries to make any comparisons they really haven't listened to either one of us."

Underwood added that Swift's songs are a "bit lighter" and the two simply have different brands, a point that's difficult to argue with. But whose music do you prefer? Select a answer/winner to that question now:

And the Winner is?

They own the country music scene, but whose music do you like better? Decide between Carrie and Taylor now! View Poll »

Carrie Underwood is not alone in supporting gay marriage, but she's one of the few stars to say she does so because of her strong religious beliefs.

The "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer, a devout Christian, told Britain's The Independent newspaper that for her, marriage equality is rooted in faith.

"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, who you want to marry forever," she said.

"I can't imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love."

Raised Baptist, Carrie recently switched to a non-denominational Christian congregation along with her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher.

You see a lot of religious objections to marriage equality, (like this hate-filled child), but Underwood said her faith inspired her to support gay marriage.

"Above all, God wanted us to love others," the Oklahoma-born CMT award winner said. "It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.'"

"No, we're all different," the 29-year-old continued. "That's what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other."

"It's not up to me to judge anybody."

She makes a point, doesn't she?

Blond beauty Carrie Underwood performed the title track to her chart-topping new album, Blown Away, live at last night's Billboard Music Awards.

Showing off her unmistakably powerful pipes (and other attributes), Carrie commanded the stage with what she calls one of the darkest songs she's ever written.

Dark or not, it was a terrific effort, don't you agree?

At the event, Carrie talked to reporters about Robin Gibb, who died earlier in the day, and how she used to listen to the late Bee Gees singer as a kid.

"My parents both listened to the Bee Gees quite a bit when I was little, so I was definitely exposed to them at an early age," she said.

"They just had a sound that was all their own, obviously, [it was] never duplicated," she added. "They were very influential on music in general."

"It's very sad to hear about any loss. There have been a lot of legends lost this year, so it's always sad to see it happen, but they are paying a couple of tributes here, and I know that they'll be classy and respectful and allow us all to remember them."

The most notable: John Legend and Jordin Sparks' tribute to Whitney.
