Honestly, it is still kind of insane to think that we got Carrie Underwood from ‘American Idol‘. Now don’t get me wrong, the show has definitely produced some huge stars, Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, just to name a few.
It is just so strange to think that Carrie was up there every week fighting to stay alive in a singing competition. She won though, and she has absolutely lived up to the title of being an idol.
Carrie has always been very vocal about how much she does appreciate having a platform like ‘American Idol’. I remember reading somewhere that she even gave her number to every winner of the show in case they had any questions. Such a helpful legend.
Well 12 years ago on this day, Carrie was crowned the winner of ‘American Idol’ and I do believe she has lived up to the title.
