American Idol‘ winner Kelly Clarkson hasn’t been shy when it comes to commenting on the show that catapulted her into stardom. Since Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their exits from the show, Clarkson has been vocal as to whom she’d like to see fill the judges seats. And now that Mariah Carey has secured one of the vacant seats, Clarkson has sounded off.

“I’m kind of super-proud that I’m from the show and Mariah Carey’s going to be on it,” she said to Extra TV. “Just because I’m a huge fan of hers.” Clarkson must have a thing for strong female voices, because when she was asked if fellow ‘Idol’ alum Carrie Underwood would make a good judge, she gushed, “She would!
