During the judges’ critiques in Wednesday night’s episode of “American Idol,” Randy Jackson described the vocal sound of Lauren Alaina Suddeth of Rossville, Ga., as a hybrid of past “Idol” winners Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.

Clarkson posted on her Facebook page: “Just saw Lauren Alaina perform Reba’s song on ‘Idol’ and she is the cutest thing! I can’t wait to hear a record from her! I will add to what Randy said about her being a mix of me and Carrie, she’s also got some Kellie Pickler in there.”

Clarkson wished Suddeth, a sophomore at Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School, continued success and said “I hope you make it far in the competition.”
