Kelly Clarkson settles 'American Idol' song use dispute

UPI News Service, 01/19/2006 

Kelly Clarkson, the original "American Idol," has relented and agreed to let contestants on the Fox TV show sing her songs.

Judge Simon Cowell attacked the superstar in the press this week after it became known she had refused to sign licensing papers allowing "American Idol" to use her music during the current competition.

A Sony BMG spokesman said Clarkson's refusal to let "Idol" use her music wasn't a slam to the show, since she had made a decision not to let anyone or anything use her material.

However, Cowell took offense and went on the defense.

"No matter how talented Kelly Clarkson is, she would not be in the position she's in now without winning this show," Cowell said Tuesday.

A day later, Clarkson's rep announced she had reconsidered and decided to let "Idol" use her songs "within reason," E! said.
