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?

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.

Brandon Blackstock and Kelly Clarkson Throwback

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.
