First-season "American Idol" champ Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to another "Idol" winner, Carrie Underwood at her Oct. 5 concert in Perth, Australia, by performing a cover of Carrie's current hit, "Blown Away," from Carrie's album of the same name. During the fan request segment of her live show on the Stronger tour, Kelly explained that she uses that time each night to perform a cover version that a fan at the show has asked for via Twitter or Facebook

"I love music more than most people," Kelly told the audience. "I love all different genres. I love anything that sounds soulful and has a heart to it. We've had this song requested quite a bit. I was just trying to wait. I didn't know exactly how I wanted to do it because I knew I wanted to change up the production of it. I love this song; this probably my favorite Carrie Underwood song. It's just super dark and it's really cool."

It may be a good thing Kelly is such a fan of the song. She'll be facing off against Carrie at the CMA Awards on Thursday, Nov. 1. The two are among the nominees for Female Vocalist of the Year. Kelly's new single, "Catch My Breath," is from her Greatest Hits -- Chapter 1 album, which will be released Nov. 19. Kelly is currently on tour in Europe, with a show in Dublin, Ireland, tonight (Oct. 10). See more of her tour dates here.
