    Is she pregnant?

    Yikes!! Just NO, Kelly!! Neither one of the outfits you wore did you any good. Please, get a stylist – at least for outings like this. What you wear in private is not anyone’s business, and shouldn’t be criticized, but when you step out at events like this… A totally different story.

    Love Kelly Clarkson. Great voice, cool girl. This isn’t a country song, though–like at all. I know there are a lot of country singers whose music is full of other musical influences but they usually contain some identifiable country element. This is just a flat out R&B song. There is nothing country about it. She sings it well and it’s a decent song but it’s weird that she is performing it on a country music award show.

    Honestly, Kelly Clarkson is one of the most underrated, talented pop (and now country) superstars of our generation. She could be as big as Katy Perry and Rihanna if it wasn’t for the fact that she’s overweight. Lets face it, she’s WAY more talented that all the other popstars out there, she has catchy, very successful hits and has soooo much charisma! But since she’s not selling sex being half-naked on her videos and doing coreography on elaborate world tours, she’s never going to be regarded as what she is, a true superstar. I find KC to be an inspiration and she’s always so refreshing. The type of girl you want to root for, I’m always so entertained by her stuff. Can’t wait to see her perform on Idol this week and for her to show this skinny slutty girls on pop music how it’s done without whoring out! GO KELLY!

    Who put Kelly’s Head on XTina Body?

  • Dolly

    There is no such thing as Country music it now sounds like POP. CMA are ashamed of country sounding music.

  • sass

    I love Kelly Clarkson. I liked the way she looked tonight, and she has the best voice of anyone on any stage. She can sing all genres, and I love everything she sings. I am looking forward to her performance on Idol in a few days. Her voice is freaking fantastic. Gives me chills. She can sing any damn thing she wants. It all sounds amazing!!!!

  • Paisley

    She rarely sings in a country style she doesn’t want to be known as a country star.

  • xax

    she looks like a cupcake or something lol

  • datdresstho

    obligatory standing ovation every time she sings

  • xtina

    Y U DO THIS Kelly? back at her old weight again…sigh..

  • susan

    as Jesse answered I am stunned that a mother can profit $4200 in 1 month on the computer. did you look at this web link and go to home tab for more detail—>>>

  • NO!!

    That dress, that hair, the makeup… just no

  • Franson

    Glad they added the subtitles for the Huttese.

  • just a thought

    Yes the dress is a little to tight but the hair and makeup are on point. From the neck up she looks great.

  • Anon

    She gained back all the weight she lost. She looked great last summer.

  • danielle

    i don’t want to be mean.. is she pregnant? or only bigger?

  • betty


  • miss infamous

    I would hate to be famous where people can sit behind a computer and criticize your looks 24/7…..but she sounded good

  • r&b mom

    She looks like the mother of the bride. Too dowdy a look for her.

  • ann

    whoever dresses her needs to be slapped several times with the thickest issue of Vogue

  • Emma

    She’s a singer not a fashion icon! It doesn’t matter how big she is or how small she is she is an AMAZING people will never be happy with whatever she does I think she’s beautiful and has an amazing voice! At the end of the day she’s worked so hard to be where she is and she wants to wear and dress how she wants is upto her she’s deserves it all!

  • Roxie

    She is an amazing talent. However the dress was very unflattering. She must have used Miranda Lambert’s stylist! They both looked poured into their too small dresses!! ! At least Kelly is talented Miranda is a joke!

    I agree with another poster- she is totally underrated.

    She is so classy and keeps her image as a real person, I do think she yo-yos with her weight quite a bit.

    Thar being said, she could find a better stylist, she is reminding me of Hillary Clinton here.

  • sillyme

    Gah, I’m tired of people who say she’s underrated. She’s underrated by who (whom?)? She consistently gets standing O’s every time she performs, music critics love and call her the best singer out, I’m always hearing how she’s the best singer in generations. Who is underrating her?

  • Hope everything…

    is fine in lovey dovey land. Why is she gaining weight when she’s in love and happy? Most females LOSE weight bc their minds are occupied about their partner — they feel good inside and they have that love glow. They don’t have time to stress out and have episodes of emotional eating. Love this woman’s singing, but she is a star and it matters a lot what you look like. Adele is a big gal too, but she owns it. Adele is very womanly/feminine and she presents herself well. You can just tell that Kelly is simple.

  • Lillian

    Carrie and Kelly were the two best performances of the night. Both Idol queens and Oh, so talented. They are the best thing that came out of IDOL

  • Amy

    She looks huge!

  • Rose

    @mickey: The original song is a duet performed with Vince Gil, that might be why it’s considered a Country song. She originaly debuted the song with Vince at the CMA’s.

  • lean

    @Lillian: Carrie Undezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………..No1curr about her

  • fact

    Not taking anything away from Kelly, but Carrie Underwood is the most successful idol. She’s also sold the most records.

  • Jessa

    @fact: Kelly is and always will be more successful idol. She is an global artist while no1currie only plays for the south..

  • Alana

    I think it goes to show that Kelly has what it takes to be in the industry if she’s able to sing Pop, Country, and now R&B, and still sound beautiful. I work at DISH with a few people who were telling me about her days on American Idol, and it’s amazing to see someone succeed as much as she has. There were so many great performances at the ACM Awards this year, and I’m so glad that I was able to record them. Fortunately, our DISH Hopper can record up to six different things at the same time during primetime, so while I was enjoying the great music, my husband was able to watch his Mad Men show, and the kids were busy with their own cartoons.

  • Lee

    Amazing singer, really cute girl but she has to be the worst dressed woman in the entertainment business. She looked dreadful on Idol this week. Someone needs to save her.

  • Crystal

    She is so classy and keeps her image as a real person, I do think she yo-yos with her weight quite a bit.

  • Troy

    Love her yummy thickness! MMMMMMMM!!!!
