Out of all the winners on American Idol Kelly Clarkson has made the most!
The singer has been said to have racked in a a whopping $8 million!!
Clarkson has beat s Carrie Underwood & Chris Daughtry ($5 million), Scotty McCreery ($4 million), Jennifer Hudson($3 million) and Jordin Sparks ($2 million).
Jennifer Hudson has set her eyes on staring in Broadway.
The American Idol contestant is already staring in Smash but when the series is over is she going to star in Broadway.
the singer said:
“Doing the show [Smash] has helped me get my feet wet for Broadway. I like to take one step at a time and I feel like this was a huge leap, but a great start into walking into that world, which is something I definitely want to do one day.”
Jennifer knows that it’s not going to be very easy doing Broadway as she carried on in saying:
“It’s not easy being on the stage, on Broadway. I take my hat off to those people.”
Justin Bieber may have been a guest mentors on the X Factor along side Nick Jonas, Marc Anthony but now he is going to be taking to the stage to perform live.
The singer announced the news on twitter saying:
“Congrats to those going thru to the live shows on @thexfactorusa – good luck @la_reid. maybe i will come perform something from #BELIEVE ”
It’s thanks to L.A. why Justin is famous today as he signed him to Island Records back in 2008.
There still has been no talk on what single he will perform but it could be his new single Beauty And A Beat with Nicki Minaj but sadly Nicki will not be performing with him as she is currently in the UK on her Roman Reloaded tour.
Bristol Palin may have been able to survive last week but that not what can be said this week.
After she revived the lowest score this week sadly Palin was kicked off Dancing With The Stars: All Stars this week. You might know that Bristol is the daughter of Sarah Palin.
But sadly it just wasnt their best day for Bristol and her pro partner Mark Ballas were .
After her elimination talking to Jimmy Kimmel she said:
“I think I was optimistic about every week. I’d never been in the actual bottom two, so it was hard to process it all, but it is what it is. Good luck to everyone else.”
Then today Palin appeared on Good Morning America as she said:
“He had a blast. He’s going to look back on this and think it’s just hilarious. I’m glad that I did it, and I’m glad that he’s gotten to be a part of it.”

If you was watching last weeks X Factor you will know that Gary Barlow walked off after contestant Rylan Clark who cant sing beat Gary’s act Caroline Poole who can.
Now Gary has said that if it happens again he will walk off and that will be the end of his career on the show. There has been reports that there was whispering that judge Louis Walsh,was talking to the X Factor team discussing to put the vote to deadlock.
Louis really wanted Caroline in to the next show but Richard Holloway who is befriends with Simon Cowell and runs the show was spotted on the live show telling Walsh to vote in a certain way.
But when Garry walked off he demanded to have a chat about what to go on with the show.
An X Factor insider has said:
“Gary is fiercely proud of his reputation and signed up for the show because he wanted to nurture genuine talent. The reason he wanted to be on it was to put a stop to these tricks and to stop insulting the artists and viewers. The pantomime some of his fellow judges bring to the show drives him insane and he believes it undermines the credibility of the whole show. Sunday’s antics infuriated him. He was livid. He called a dinner for last night and issued an ultimatum — if this ever happens again he is off. No questions asked. Gary is demanding that genuine talent should always be recognised ahead of pantomime acts like Rylan who might pull in a few more phone votes for the novelty factor.”
But it was not just Gary that was not happy with the results as over 1000 people called in to a media watch group based in the UK, complaining about the way things were handled on Sunday’s X Factor episode!
And just like normal Richard Holloway claims that he never told Louis anything other than which order the judging was going to be in.
Nicole Scherzinger is NOT happy about the show too as she was caught slagging the shoo off on the phone in a queue at the air port.
Not every one of her singles has gone number one bit its looking like Kelly Clarkson is going to release a greatest hits album!
Kelly has really worked hard since winning American Idol as most winners of the show fade out but no not Clarkson.
Kelly has said on her official website:
It’s been a decade now since I won American Idol. Sometimes it feels longer because although it has been exciting that was a lot of pressure to have as a 19 year old girl. To own a company, lead an organization as a business woman, and be able to create music I’m proud of has been tough, but inspiring, for me. To celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song “Catch my Breath” with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything. This song represents who I’ve been, what I’ve felt, and where I’m headed as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it’s time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today. The song will be part of my first ever greatest hits (!!) coming in November. Thank you everyone that has been a part of my career and life. Here’s to another decade of passion and fun! I hope you like the song…its coming next week!
Kelly has had so many great hits so we can see this album flying off the shop shelves.
