Who wouldn’t want to be mistaken for Carrie Underwood? That would be quite a gracious compliment. And Kelly Clarkson revealed that it happened to her, once, in her Awesome at Being Awkward game on her talk show recently.

“I do not look like this person,” Clarkson said as she prefaced her story about being Underwood’s alleged lookalike. “But this girl came up to me and was like, ’Oh my God your song “So Small” is one of my favorites.” And I kept thinking, I don’t have a song (called) ’So Small.’ And then she said another song. And I was like, ’Ohhhhh you think I’m Carrie Underwood.’ And I literally look nothing like Carrie Underwood.”
So the ultimate question is, did she correct this Underwood fan?
“I was so embarrassed for her,” she said, “and she was like, ’Can you sign this?’ And I totally signed ’Carrie Underwood.’
“I think that might be illegal.”
