Kelly Clarkson Reigns Supreme Idol

Apparently American Idol has gone downhill since the first season, as Billboard ranks Kelly Clarkson the most successful Idol winner.

Season 3 winner Carrie Underwood may have sold more albums, but Clarkson reigns supreme, with 10.6 million albums and 15.9 million tracks sold. In comparison, Underwood has sold 11.5 million albums and 13.9 million tracks.

The third most successful contestant is Chris Daughtry, who was booted off the show surprisingly early in Season 5. His self-titled band has sold 5.7 million albums.
