Kelly Clarkson says Carrie Underwood should judge Idol

Kelly Clarkson prefers “mentor” role on Duets as opposed to American Idol, but she definitely has someone in mind – fellow winner Carrie Underwood.

“I don’t want to be a judge. Mentor is more my style,” she told Us. “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!”

But Clarkson, 30, thinks 2005’s American Idol winner Carrie Underwood would be the perfect new judge for the show.

“She would! Didn’t she major in journalism or something?” Clarkson said of the 29-year-old country singer. Indeed, Underwood did graduate from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Okla. in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communication with an emphasis in journalism. “And she can have that face . . . that bluff face! She can put that on! She would be good.”
