Kelly Clarkson: 'Carrie Underwood Would Be A Great Idol Judge'
22 July 2012
Kelly Clarkson has given fellow American Idol winner Carrie Underwood her vote as the next American Idol judge -- after Carrie was linked to the role.
Underwood has joined former Idol favourite Adam Lambert, Mariah Carey, will.i.am and Fergie as potential replacements for Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, who both quit the show last week - and Clarkson has revealed she'd love to see Carrie in the hot seat.
Clarkson, who wrapped up the first season of another talent show, Duets, on Thursday (19 July) insists she is not in the running to reteam with Idol producers, stating, "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 (contestants), getting them amped up."
"But (Underwood) she would. Didn't she major in journalism or something?"
She told UsMagazine.com, "She can have that face... that bluff face! She can put that on! She would be good."
