Beating out contestants from ten other seasons, Kelly Clarkson topped Forbes' list of top-earning "American Idol" contestants.
From May 2011 to May 2012, the "Stronger" singer earned about $8 million, far surpassing the following two who tied for the second spot, Carrie Underwood and Chris Daughtry, who each took in $5 million.
First came the feud, now comes the interview. Mariah Carey recently opened up after the “American Idol” confrontation with Barbara Walters during an episode of “Nightline.”
In the clip, which airs on ABC tonight (January 7), the 42-year-old singer revealed that she was concerned for her safety while filming episodes of the Fox singing competition after the infamous fight with Nicki Minaj.
Heading in for a busy day on the set of "American Idol," Mariah Carey and Keith Urban were spotted in Los Angeles on Thursday (December 13).
The "All I Want for Christmas is You" crooner was in full glam mode in a short and shiny gold dress and strappy heels while her country singer co-judge sported a white T-shirt, brown leather jacket, and black jeans as he accepted a gift of some pricey booze.
