The American Idol Alumni Association has been growing over the last thirteen years, collecting memberships from former contestants, judges, and hosts alike. Carrie Underwood, the Season 4 champion and one of the two most successful artists to come from the show, recently came together with another of Idol‘s renowned faces.
While visiting the United Kingdom and performing on the country’s The X-Factor, Carrie saw old friend and crabby judge, Simon Cowell, on the set. The two caught up and snagged a photo to share with the world, showing that perhaps Simon isn’t really the bad guy he portrays on these shows.
Though mixed reviews came from the UK audience, we think Carrie was as spectacular as ever and represented the United States and country music perfectly. Watch Carrie perform her new single “Heartbeat” on UK’s The X-Factor by clicking here!
