Her voice is thunderous, has enough range to go down low and back up to an E, has a tone as thick and smooth as molasses, and never lets her down during complicated runs. Tons of contestants have equally impressive voices, but her stage presence was never lacking, she put an original spin on every classic she sang, and won America over with her adorable, bubbly personality, despite being the underdog entering the semifinals. Opinions about her recording career may vary (I don't personally love her two most recent albums), but as an Idol contestant she checked every box and then some.

A few others may have sang better songs in Idols many years to come, but nobody could sing the range of songs that miss Kelly would perform without REALIZING herself she was that good. You believed she felt it every week and she was simply better than anyone else week-in and week-out. She wasn't just consistent (like Clay) and she wasn't just getting better every week (like Chris Allen)... she wasn't just likable like Reuben.. she was all these things at once. Sadly, Kelly is likely the best COUNTRY singer Idol has ever had but she's never really went into the genre... leaving the beautiful miss Underwood to dominate that category on her own.

I loved Thankful and adore Breakway. She is doing great with radio. Three hits. Go Kelly. Unfortunately, she doesn't play well live. I saw her twice in concert and she really lacks stage presence. The first time I saw her was with Clay Aiken. She was blah!! No one should tour with Mr Aiken. They cannot live down the comparisons to Mr Aiken. Recently, I attended a concert and I was wondering who this person was. I like the old Kelly look. Is Kelly trying to be the new Brittany... I also didn't like her performance on the morning show (I believe it was the Today show but the shows are all the same to me) or SNL. Maybe she was tired but I didn't life the performances. In any case, buy Kelly's two CD's. Both are very, very good.

The Kelly Clarkson that left American Idol was the pure sweet little girl. Now she has started to get out of that look. I don't know if she is becoming more of herself or becoming what Hollywood seems to want out of their artist. I think she needs to take a good look at some of the outfits she wears and ask herself if that outfit is suitable for all ages to see. In her video "behind these hazel eyes" that one outfit slightly disturbs me. If I had a child I wouldn't want them seeing her in it. Little girls look up to her and want to be like her. She should really be more careful

Kelly had some truly excellent performances on AI -- but in all honesty, I haven't been very impressed by her live performances since AI1. I question her range and control since she gets screechy in her high notes and flat in the low notes. She tries to overpower almost every single song, and it gets very tiresome to me, especially if I listen to more than 1 or 2 of her songs in a row. I'd like to see her develop more subtlety and nuance in her performances. She does sound better on her CDs, and she has some terrific and catchy songs on her CDs, but unfortunately, we're not rating songs here.

I liked Tamyra and Kelly on season 1 and ended up voting for Kelly. I overlooked Kelly's trouble with her voice at the end of the season, but since we are supposed to vote according to the Idol season performances that did play into my scoring. She did lose control of her voice a few times and it cracked. The power was still there. I loved her Natural Woman performance the best. I've decided I liked the Idol Kelly's performances better than her mainstream releases. She sounded more like Kelly than Avril Lavigne and that's why I voted for her, but no one can argue with her success on the radio-she now fits into a niche that they're comfortable with.

Saw Kelly in concert and a few other appearances. She is cute and quite the talker but her focus when she sings sometimes wavers. She may hit the notes with gusto, but often doesn't deliver anything special with the song. Kelly has so much vocal talent. If she keeps maturing with her performances and distinquishes herself far enough away from the Avril's and Britany's, she should stay near the top of the heap for a long time. Personally, I'm having an increasingly difficult time separating her from all the others out there.

I am glad Disney suported Breakaway (the single) as they did. It was a good ground breaker for her soph. CD. She has had great radio play. RCA is backing her to the the tune of $500,000+ paid per song played on the radio. Her sales are strong and she is a young lady on a mission. I have seen her several times in concert and she is getting much stronger on stage presence. I don't care for the blonde hair, but she still looks good!

She has a great voice but she tries to do too many vocal gymnastics with it and some are a disaster live. She sounds too much like an Avril Lavigne Clone now. I much prefer her Bluesy/folk material.

Kelly Clarkson in her upper register doesn't have good tone to her voice. She almost screeches. In her lower register, she does not have much power and sometimes the lyrics can't be understood.

Kelly was consistant, but occasionally sounded screechy when hitting her power notes. She does have a good voice, but needs to stay within her range.

There's something special about Kelly, since she was the first idol. She's an extremely talented girl and definitely deserves to be in the position she's in. I saw her live when she was on tour with Clay and she was great, although I must admit I think he outshone her a bit. Still, she's great.

Wrong Show for a Country Voice

During the show an ok singer who still cannot perform a song. Her voice is country, so she was on the wrong show. Poor, slaughtered pronunciation works for country singers; but, was just ok for Idol. After the show, total nausea and that screaming gets so, so boring. Where is the feeling and emotion?

So so

She has a pretty voice, but it's not something to write home about. She has a nice range and can hit some pretty high notes, but at times it's almost like she's screaming. As for her style, she reminds me of the other pop/punk princesses. I do think she has a cute personality though.

Ok, but needs work

I have to thank Kelly for introducing me to Clay. Watching her in the finale of Season 1 was what sucked me into the show........I loved A Moment like this, Beautiful Disaster and Miss Independant. Her duet of Open Arms with Clay on tour is one of my favorite performances to listen to. Sometimes she tries to force her voice too far outside her comfortable range, and can sound a bit Yelly, but overall she is my #2 Idol. What success she is having on the radio now!! You go girl.

I liked Kelly alot on season one and felt she should have won. But I have seen her perform since then, several times, and while I like her when she's singing, after that things start to fall apart. She has had some awesome radio success, so good for her... but her live performances, whether on TV or in concert, could use some work. And I totally think her stylist must hate her. Her clothing choices stink.

I saw Kelly concert and she was barely average!

She has absolutely no stage presence and was beginning to lose her voice when I saw her. She was having major problems reaching notes instead she was scretching. She seems to have more personality in interviews and I was disappointed that she doesn't put the same energy into her live performances. I also saw her on SNL and I was disappointed by that performance.

The winner by a mile!!

Kelly Clarkson has an interesting, distinctive voice, with limitations. Her lower register needs refinement, which I believe will come in time. I hear her straining at times on the more "powerful" notes, which sometimes come off as screaming. After American Idol, I believe that she spent a considerable amount of time fighting off damage to her vocal cords, resulting from strain during and immediately following the competition. With continued training, I believe that Kelly will continue to be successful and remedy the flaws I've described.

Was better in earlier career

On AI her performances were very good and made her seem special. Her voice is not always in the best control however. The last year and a half, her performances have gone down hill. There have been several mediocre or average performances I have seen. She always seem to have "problem" performances on various shows. She goes flat frequently, especially in the lower voice stage. When she gets to higher voice, she tends to just yell instead of sing. Her recent songs are too much like other singers now---no individuality---if you didn't know it was her, you would think it was Avril. Her appearance is sometimes terrible---way too much eye makeup, clothes that don't flatter her body style and size.
