She ain't no Kelly Clarkson.
In news we never thought we'd have to report, the final season of American Idol kicks off tonight with the Denver and Atlanta auditions, which means there are only a few hours left to attract as many viewers as possible.
So in honor of the big night, Ryan Seacrest stopped by TODAY Wednesday morning to promote the premiere… but he may have accidentally started a feud instead!
That's because when he was asked which Idol winner was his favorite, he instantly picked Carrie Underwood.
"Kelly too, but, you know, I was just on New Year's with Carrie, and she's just a superstar. She really is. So I take Carrie."
What's most interesting about the rivalry between the two female singers is that neither was actually the top earning AI alum of 2015… because Adam Lambert nabbed the top spot with $10 million thanks to his tour with Queen.
Are you #TeamCarrie or #TeamKelly??
