Kelly Clarkson Casts Her Vote For Carrie Underwood As New Idol Judge!

Kelly Clarkson Carrie Underwood Pick

From one Idol winner to another!

American Idol may be gearing up for its twelfth season, but that doesn’t mean the show’s very FIRST winner doesn’t have some input to give on the show's judging panel fiasco!

Kelly Clarkson just wrapped up her first season as a mentor on ABC’s Duets and has since expressed NO interest in filling the seats Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left behind!

Kelly recently confessed:

"I don't want to be a judge. Mentor is more my style. And not just mentoring, getting to be a part of the song with them, getting them amped up — from our rehearsals to stage, it's so exciting being onstage. It's fun!"

We definitely agree…and Kelly makes SUCH a great mentor!

So just who WOULD she want to see as an Idol judge?? None other than season four winner, Carrie Underwood, of course!

When Carrie was suggested, Clarkson responded:

"Didn't she major in journalism or something? And she can have that face . . . that bluff face! She can put that on! She would be good."

Underwood graduated from Northeastern State University in her homestate of Oklahoma back in 2006, with a degree in mass communications, with a journalism emphasis!

Although the two may be battling it out for the Idol singer with the best-selling single, it’s nice to know that they still remain supportive of their Idol fam!

We think Carrie would be a pretty good pick for the show!

    She would be good, at least she has some experience in the industry, but honestly this show is probably on the way out, one or two more seasons at best.

    Carrie is fake and plastic so she would be perfect as an Idol judge. I also hear she is a huge grammer snob. She can insult all of the contestants poor speech along with bad singing. Kelly is too much of an artist to waste time being a judge. She lives to sing, and she would not want to insult young hopefuls. She is too much of a sweetheart to do that. Do it Carrie. Your last album sucks anyway.
