    Maybe next time they'll think before they mistake Kelly Clarkson for Carrie Underwood.

    During an episode of "The Kelly Clarkson Show," Clarkson revealed that people mistake her for the fellow American Idol winner pretty frequently. "That happens to me all the time!" the superstar told her guests Gabriel Iglesias and D'Arcy Carden. "Seriously, I have been asked all the time or they'll be like, 'Oh my gosh, I love your song 'So Small.' And I'm like, 'I don't even know what that is.' And then, I'll find out it's Carrie Underwood!"

    But Clarkson, being the ray of sunshine she is, takes the mistake as a compliment. "I'm like, 'Thank you!'" she admitted. "'Cause I'm, like, legit 100 pounds heavier than Carrie Underwood."

    As Carden piped in, "You look amazing." And that's the truth!
