Kelly Clarkson Thinks Carrie Underwood Should Be New ‘Idol’ Judge

By on July 20, 2012







In the aftermath of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez leaving American Idol, rumors have been flying as to who will replace their seats at the judges table. We have heard everything from Mariah Carey to Aretha Franklin and even Charlie Sheen! Another rumor was former Idol contestant Adam Lambert! Well now another former Idol contestant is speaking out on who she thinks would make a great judge and while she isn’t talking about herself, she is volunteering another Idol alum.

Kelly Clarkson says she does not want to be a judge on the next season of American Idol, but she is more than happy to volunteer someone else. Clarkson told US Weekly that mentoring is more of her style, rather than judging, as we all got to see on her stint on Duets. She does think however that 2005 Idol winner and extremely successful country singer Carrie Underwood should do it!

Clarkson said:

“She would! 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.”

I wouldn’t mind seeing Underwood at that judges table! Who do you think should be the next Idol judge???
