The Ultimate American Idol Power Ranking

American Idol is entering a new era. But before that, check out the Top 120 contestants throughout the show's 9 years of talent search according to Idol Tracker.

The L.A. Times column picked Kelly Clarkson over Carrie Underwood as the the no. 1 American Idol of all time. Here’s what they said about the first ever winner of the no. 1 talent competition program on the planet:

She may not have sold as many albums or won as many Grammys as Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood, but no female voice in “American Idol” history is as instantly recognizable as Kelly Clarkson’s, which is reason enough to give her the top spot. Indeed, the 2002 champ set the bar high for all seasons to follow, with eight Top 10 hits and 10 million records sold, but it’s her ascent from cocktail waitress to international pop superstar that best demonstrates the show’s entire purpose, and for that, she’ll always be No. 1.
