Ever since Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler announced that they were leaving American Idol, there have been many great candidates to take their places including Mariah Carey, Charlie Sheen and Adam Lambert. Even Kelly Clarkson was recommended for a judge spot. The talented singer, however, isn’t interested in becoming a judge on American Idol, but she’s happy to recommend Carrie Underwood for the job. Read on to find out more.
In an interview with US Weekly, Kelly Clarkson said, “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 kind of agree with her there. Although she would make a great judge, she does make a better mentor. Kelly seems like she truly enjoys mentoring young singers and even singing along with them.
But Kelly was quick to recommend Carrie Underwood for the judge spot. “She would! Didn’t she major in journalism or something?” she said. “And she can have that face . . . that bluff face! She can put that on! She would be good.”
We definitely think Carrie Underwood would be a great judge on American Idol. She obviously knows what it takes to be a successful musician and would do a good job judging new talent. Although she would be honest with the contestants, we don’t think she would be so brutal that she would hurt a singer’s feelings. In other words, she won’t be a Simon Cowell.
Do you think Carrie Underwood would make a good American Idol judge? Are you disappointed Kelly Clarkson won’t be one? Share your thoughts with us!
