Singers Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson held hands and joked around on the red carpet, as they posed for the shutterbugs.


Underwood and Clarkson are the two most popular winners in the history of American Idol.

They are also the best of friends, as was seen by their interaction on the red carpet of the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards that took place on June 22, 2018.

Kelly Clarkson won the first season of American Idol while Carrie Underwood won in season 4. The two ran into each other on the red carpet of the RDMAs and shared a mutual admiration for each other.

The two hugged each other and then continued to hold hands as they posed for the photographers, going down the red carpet together as seen on the official Instagram account of Radio Disney.


Both Clarkson and Underwood were present at the awards to receive special awards that were announced earlier this year. Read more about the duo on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.

Clarkson accepted the Icon Award while Underwood took home the Hero Award. They also performed on the stage that night, although not together.

At the award show, Clarkson showed off an impressive weight loss of 37 pounds, reportedly without any workout, as per the Inquisitr.


She sported a Balmain dress with fishnet cutouts, paired with black boots, while Underwood looked stunning in a black dress with sheer lace overlay.

Underwood also performed her new hit Champion on stage for the first time along with Ludacris.

The duo has been vocal about their friendship on social media before also. When an internet poll pitted the ladies against each other as “The most Iconic Idol Winner,” Clarkson was having none of it.


“I think we’re both winning in life and pretty blessed! Singers, mamas, CEOs…. #AmbitiousBlondes go ahead @carrieunderwood.”

Underwood was all the more supportive as she responded saying that she voted for her during Season 1 of American Idol. She hoped that more publications celebrated successful women instead of pitting them against each other.
