‘Make the right choice again’: Kelly Clarkson pokes fun at American Idol runner-up Justin Guarini while urging fans to vote
She famously beat Justin Guarini to win American Idol in 2002.
Now Kelly Clarkson is jokingly using the image of herself surrounded by well wishers on that evening to urge voters in the elections to ‘make the right choice again, America.’
And the 34-year-old added an Election 2016 hashtag in the Twitter blast she sent out to her 11.2 million followers on Tuesday.
Making light of it: Kelly Clarkson recalled the night in 2002 when she was voted the American Idol winner in this tweet urging voters to ‘make the right choice again’ in the political election
She also apologised to Justin, saying: ‘Just kidding,’ with three laughing emoji faces.
If Kelly’s fans were in any doubt about who she is supporting to be the next president of the United States, the singer also posted a snap of herself with Hillary Clinton and some friends.
The Moment Like This songstress captioned it: ‘I’ve been a fan of this woman for years.’
No hard feelings: The star insisted to runner-up Justin Guarini that she was ‘just kidding’
No doubt about her vote: The 34-year-old, who is a firm Hillary Clinton supporter, attended the SHE Summit devoted to uplifting women, at the 92nd Street Y on October 28 in New York
Kelly has been encouraging fans to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton while dissing Republican candidate Donald Trump.
‘Vote in this election! It is important! If ur voting 4 Trump remember 2 cast ur vote on November 9th. #stillcounts #promise #helpmehelpyou,’ she wrote on Twitter on Monday,
‘People, the last day 2 vote is the 8th. So vote the 8th for her & the 9th 4 him. He’s repulsive. I’m obviously voting for @HillaryClinton,’ she exclaimed in another tweet.

Meanwhile the mother-of-two, who is married to manager Narvel Blackstock’s son Brandon, has added her voice to the Hamilton Mixtape album, due out December 2.
A slew of celebs have covered songs from the hit Broadway musical.
Kelly’s version of It’s Quiet Uptown is one of two singles released early to promote the full album.
Seeing things from her point of view: While encouraging people to vote, Kelly also disseminated a bit of inaccurate information to discourage Donald Trump supporters
