We wonder if Kelly Clarkson had any flashbacks to her American Idol days while filming her acoustic set for VH1 Unplugged? Regardless, some Idol love definitely found its way into the show, as Season One victor Clarkson covered Season 4 champ Carrie Underwood’s “I Know You Won’t.” (A better choice than Ruben Studdard or Taylor Hicks, we think.) This isn’t the first time the Toyota Camry cruiser has trotted out “I Know You Won’t” for fans — they went bananas for it at last month’s concert at the Troubador — but we’ll never tire of this flawless Idol-on-Idol lovefest. Catch the Carrie cover along with Kelly’s unplugged “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” below.
