We need your help, Derbyites. As Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. step behind the desk for the final time on Fox's "American Idol," we want to know who's really best winner so far? Is it Season 1's Kelly Clarkson or Season 4's Carrie Underwood (both of whom currently lead our poll) or someone else entirely? Vote in our poll below.
There are many worthy winners to choose from over the past 14 years — some more successful than others — but you can only vote for one, so choose wisely.
After voting in our poll, be sure to sound off on the current seasons of all your favorite shows in Gold Derby's reality TV forum.
