14 January 2012 – Kelly Clarkson – Miss Independent ( & Respect Yourself ) – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

This….is AMERICAN IDOL!

Since AI is returning to the air this week, Scott and I decided we’d go ahead and give you two weeks of American Idol alumni, to show you what an impact the show has had on the entire music industry.

Let’s start at the beginning.  The very first winner.  She’s been featured on here before – our second post, and Scott’s first – and now, she kicks off our showcase.  Released in 2003, this is the song that really made Kelly Clarkson a bigger star, and broke her out of the American Idol mold and squeaky-clean image.

The song itself is sparse, hard-edged pop-rock, which highlights her huge voice really well.  Perhaps not surprisingly, the song was co-written by Christina Aguilera and originally intended for her…. but it would seem strange to hear her sing this song, which Kelly own so perfectly.

Bonus: Here’s Kelly Clarkson’s audition. It’s one of the most colorful auditions ever.  She even had a career backup plan.
