Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood refuse to support a Twitter poll that pitted them against each other. Both singers are products of American Idol.
Last weekend, fans were asked to choose who they think is the most iconic winner of the singing reality TV competition. After learning about the poll, Clarkson and Underwood shared their thoughts on their respective social media accounts.
I think we’re both winning in life and pretty blessed! Singers, mamas, CEO’s.... ️#AmbitiousBlondes go ahead @carrieunderwood https://t.co/3OlNSNlYAR — Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) April 7, 2018
Clarkson said that she is both Team Kelly and Team Carrie. After all, she thinks that they are both winning in life, and they are also very blessed. Underwood responded to Clarkson's tweet by saying that she actually voted for her as the most iconic winner of the show.
"But seriously, I do wish more publications would just celebrate women's success without pitting them against each other... Just my thoughts... anyway... Love ya! Hope you're well!" wrote Underwood.
This is not the first time that Clarkson and Underwood were involved in a controversy. Two years ago, one publication claimed that the two singers butt heads while rehearsing for the finale of American Idol. However, they never responded to such claims.
Ryan Seacrest Shares His Thoughts
American Idol host Ryan Seacrest also weighed in on who he thinks is more popular between the two singers. In 2016, he said that he thinks Underwood is the biggest star to come out of the show thus far.
"Kelly too, but you know, I was just on New Year's with Carrie, and she's just a superstar. She really is. So I take Carrie," said Seacrest.
Clarkson is the first ever winner of American Idol, and Underwood brought home the title in season 4. The former has already released over 10 studio albums, while Underwood has only released six compilations.
