Weep, Kelly, Weep

American Idol 1 winner Kelly Clarkson reacts poorly to finishing second on World Idol:

    STUNNED “American Idol” champ Kelly Clarkson (news) abruptly left the set of “World Idol” New Years’ night after fans snubbed her in favor of a gap-toothed plumber from Norway.

    Clarkson, who had been favored to win the competition, appeared dazed by the loss and did not stick around to congratulate Kurt Nilsen, 24, the good-natured father of two who won.

    Clarkson placed second.

    “We didn’t get to talk. I think she went back to her hotel I guess,” Nilsen told The Post yesterday.

    The talk of the “Idol” world yesterday was how upset Clarkson appeared on the show, which was taped Thursday afternoon in London and broadcast through various time zones across the world.

    She appeared to grow increasingly disgruntled as the votes from different regions were tallied and it became clear she was losing to an otherwise-unknown singer from a small Scandinavian country. [NY Post]

Maybe the world saw From Justin to Kelly.

Kelly, you’re supposed to be the unpretentious, down to earth, pudgy former-waitress from Texas – looks like you’re a snotty little prima donna. Thanks for the help with foreign relations – your nation salutes you.
