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

Carrie Underwood!

“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?
