Kelly Clarkson Doesn't Think She Would Have Beat Ruben Studdard on 'American Idol'

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about her time on American Idol and which other winner she doesn’t think she would have beat if they were on the same season – Ruben Studdard!

The 34-year-old singer chatted with Harry Connick Jr. for an upcoming episode of Harry. He served as a judge on the singing competition for the final three seasons!

Ruben. He was the second winner. Yeah, Ruben would have been hard,” Kelly said. “I feel like there are nights when I can be effortless and those are amazing and I feel like, Oh My God. I’m amazing but he’s effortless every time.”

Harry responded by saying, “Do you ever find when you come off stage that you thought you were the most amazing thing ever and you kind of got a whatever response and vice versa. Happens all the time right?”

Kelly replied, “Yes, yes.”

Kelly kicked off Harry’s new segment “American Idol: Then and Now” which will run through November, following up with past Idol contestants including Kelly, Ruben, Kellie Pickler, and more!
