Now that season XLV of "American Idol" is over, our thoughts return to the greatest Idol of all, from season one, Kelly Clarkson. No other Idol has gone on to have such a monstrously successful career.
We don't count that country girl because Y! Music won't let Framed do country music videos anymore. They wield their power in cruel and arbitrary ways!
Getting back to Ms. Clarkson: she's appeared in this blog several times over the years, always scoring with readers because she's Kelly Clarkson. She's sold over 10 million records since that glorious inaugural season and is the only Idol to have a #1 hit in the United Kingdom. We should also mention that the one-week jump of "My Life Would Suck Without You" (from #97 to #1) broke the record for the biggest leap in the history of charts and chart-like things!
This week's video is "I Do Not Hook Up," from her All I Ever Wanted album. Unlike "Suck," it only made it to #20, but it's still much, much better than any songs by any other Idols except maybe a couple by Taylor Hicks. So, without further ado, please enjoy "I Do Not Hook Up," readers, and let's hook up here again next week!

12 - Kelly does a killer "Werewolves of London" karaoke!
