With the search for new American Idol judges on, Kelly Clarkson knows exactly who should get the gig.

Carrie Underwood!

Carrie Underwood Live

"Didn't she major in journalism or something?" Clarkson said to Us Weekly of her fellow former winner. "And she can have that face... that bluff face! She can put that on! She would be good."

She'd be terrific. Underwood has the resume, and the charm and the personality, as evidenced by her CMA Awards hosting gigs.

But she also has the mammoth success and we can't see her needing to take the job for any sort of career bump.

Still, it's an intriguing idea, isn't it? Would you want to see Carrie Underwood as an American Idol judge?

She's the American Idol champion! Again!

Based on new figures that came out on July 4, Kelly Clarkson is responsible for the top-selling single of anyone ever associated with the Fox smash, as Billboard reports "Stronger" has sold 3,510,000 copies.

Take that, Carrie Underwood!

Okay, we actually adore Carrie Underwood, but it's that artist's mark that Clarkson broke. The previous best-selling single had been "Before He Cheats," which moves 3,509,000 copies in 2006.

Overall, Underwood remains in the lead as the most popular Idol ever, however. She has moved 13,205,000 total albums as of yesterday, while Kelly is closing in with 11,664,000.

Which of these talented artists is your favorite?

Kelly Clarkson returned to the show that made her a star last night.

Now in its 10th season, it seems hard to believe that American Idol crowned Kelly its first winner that long ago. Needless to say, she's been worthy of the honor.

Kelly and Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood are the only Idol artists to surpass 10 million in career album sales (Chris Daughtry is third with six million-plus).

On last night's results show, which also featured a performance by Rihanna, Kelly teamed up with rising country star Jason Aldean for a different kind of duet.

Here's Kelly and Jason collaborating on "Don't You Wanna Stay" ...

Sorry, we just wanted to answer the ridiculous question posed in our headline right away.

Kelly Clarkson appeared on American Idol last night, belting out a rendition of her hit "My Life Would Suck Without You." For some reason, this performance has sparked pregnancy rumors around the Internet, as fans wonder whether or not the original champion has a bun in her talented oven.

It's sad, really. The fact Clarkson doesn't resemble Nicole Scherzinger is a good thing; it doesn't mean she's gone all Bristol Palin on us.

Take a look for yourself:

Season eight finalists such as Danny Gokey and Adam Lambert can only hope for a career half as successful as that of Clarkson.

With her new tour kicking off on June 30, pop superstar Kelly Clarkson is looking for ways to stay in shape. That's not an easy task when you have a super-busy schedule, but the Texas cutie and inaugural American Idol winner manages to get it done.

"I do kick-boxing, I run bleachers, I have to keep my endurance up or I won't make it through a show! My songs are marathons," Kelly told the Yahoo! Insider.

The Original American Idol

Her other secret to maintaining a hot bod? Banning soda.

"I was really bad with Cokes," Clarkson said. "I had, like, nine Cokes a day. Now, if I have soda, it ruins me. It almost tastes like acid."

She's so passionate about eating well that she's hooked up with Glacéau's vitamin water beverages on a new ad campaign - one designed to get kids to kick their soda and junk food habits. Clarkson remembers going to public high school and eating in the pizza and burrito cafeteria lines.

Nowadays, she's singing a different tune and encouraging teens to eat healthy by serving as a judge for the finale of "vitaminschool," a recipe contest for students.

The contest recently awarded a $100,000 college scholarship to a high school girl whose healthy school lunch recipe -- a chicken fajita burger on a whole wheat bun -- won top honor.

"Kids aren't paying attention, so why not give them a healthy option," Kelly said. "I have a lot of young fans, so that's why we teamed up. I realize there's a lot of people looking at me and if you have a voice, you might as well make it a positive one."

At 24, Clarkson has already won two Grammys, two American Music Awards and 11 Billboard Awards. Her "Addicted!" tour opens at the end of this month in West Palm Beach, Fla., and will hit 25 cities by August. She'll be singing smash hits such as "Behind These Hazel Eyes," "Because of You" and "Since U Been Gone," without any lip-synching, thank you very much.

We're looking at you, Ashlee Simpson.

"I just think that's ridiculous," Kelly says. "People will come up to me and be like, 'Why do you do two shows and then take a day off?' And I say, 'Because I'm a singer!' I won a singing competition. If you need to lip synch, if you're that ill, take a day off!"
