Kelly Clarkson Named Top Earning American Idol

02/01/2013
.
(popmusiclife) Kelly Clarkson has topped money magazine Forbes list of 2012's top-earning American Idols.

Forbes reports Clarkson leads the list with earnings of $8 million, about what Nicki Minaj makes for her role on Idol and twice what Keith Urban gets.

More than a decade after winning Season One, Clarkson continues to grow her career, and her bank account, with the help of gold-certified album "Stronger", a mentor role on The Voice, a Toyota commercial and a lucrative tour.

Forbes' numbers are based on estimated income from May 2011 to May 2012, before subtracting taxes, American Idol's cut and any additional fees for agents, lawyers and managers. Carrie Underwood and Chris Daughtry tied for the second spot.
