'American Idol' winner Kelly Clarkson hasn't been shy when it comes to commenting on the show that catapulted her into stardom. Since Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their exits from the show, Clarkson has been vocal as to whom she'd like to see fill the judges seats. And now that Mariah Carey has secured one of the vacant seats, Clarkson has sounded off.
It appears as though other pop stars enjoy Katy Perry's latest hit 'Wide Awake' as much as we do! The first-ever 'American Idol' winner Kelly Clarkson recently performed the song while on tour. Clarkson is known to have her fans request songs she should perform, and Katy Perry's tune must have been on top of that list.
With Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez both out for the next season of 'American Idol,' speculation continues to swirl about who might replace them. Original 'Idol' champ Kelly Clarkson says she's not interested in the job, but she would like to see Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood get a shot.
For tonight's (July 19) season finale of the first season of 'Duets,' superstar Kelly Clarkson and her amateur charge Jason Farol performed together for the final time, choosing to torch it up with their fiery rendition of Elvis Presley's classic 'Heartbreak Hotel.' My what a difference a season (which is really just a few weeks, since that's how long the show has been on) makes. Farol went from a shy, unsure-of-himself performer with a great voice to a confident heartthrob with swagger, thanks in no small part to the unwavering support of his singing partner.
Now that Kelly Clarkson and boyfriend Brandon Blackstock have gone public with their relationship, they aren't hiding it. At all. Word is they engaged in a PDA sesh on the set of 'The Voice' -- even though Clarkson is no longer mentoring on that show since she has her own reality singing competition in the form of 'Duets.'
On tonight's (July 12) episode of 'Duets,' each remaining contestant sang a duet with their superstar mentor and a solo song. They were allowed to pick each song they performed. For his duet with Kelly Clarkson, amateur Jason Farol chose 'Me and Mrs. Jones,' a bluesy, torchy ballad about infidelity. For his solo song, he tackled 'Runaway Baby' by Bruno Mars.
On last Thursday's (July 5) episode of 'Duets,' superstar coaches Kelly Clarkson and John Legend teamed up for a blockbuster duet on the standard 'You Don't Know Me.' The twosome sang the classic, much loved tune while seated, likely due to the fact that Clarkson has a hairline fracture in her foot and can't stand easily. While she may be hobbling, it had absolutely no affect on that beautiful voice of hers.
Kelly Clarkson can cross another item off of her long list of accomplishments. Arguably the most famous 'American Idol' alumna, Clarkson's single 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)' off her album 'Stronger' became the best-selling 'Idol' single of all time, even knocking fellow 'Idol' winner Carrie Underwood back to second place. Underwood held the title when her single 'Before He Cheats' was released.
