From one 'American Idol' contestant to another! Country cutie Lauren Alaina performed 'My Grown Up Christmas' by 'American Idol' Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson on the 'CMA Country Christmas' special tonight. It was a fitting choice for Alaina, since it feels like she has grown up right before our very eyes in the past year. The Georgia peach has come along way from performing a capella before the judge's table.

Also, Clarkson has been dipping her toes ever so gingerly into the country world this past year, so what goes around comes around, and these two ladies share a cosmic connection through music.

As for Alaina's performance, the teen looked ladylike and elegant in a simple, black halter dress and heels. Looking good, Lauren. Surrounded by Christmas trees, twinkling lights and her fellow country singers, Alaina turned in a sweet and cozy version of this festive holiday ballad.

Something tells us that Clarkson herself would be proud of how Alaina handled her song. She's so cute and talented!
