Kelly Clarkson has no doubts about the American Idolcompetitor that could have beat her in season one.
The 34-year-old singer reveals that season-two winner, Ruben Studdard, could have given her a run for her Idol crown more than a decade ago.
"I feel like there are nights when I can be effortless and those are amazing," Clarkson explains of on an upcoming episode of Harry Connick Jr.'s talk show. "But he is effortless every time."

While the "Velvet Teddy Bear" may be a better competitor in Clarkson's eyes, she remains one of the most successful American Idol winners. Besides selling more than 20 million albums worldwide, the Texas native is working on a new album, set for release in 2017.
As for her personal life, Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock have two children together -- 2-year-old daughter River Rose and 6-month-old son Remington Alexander.
