Kelly Clarkson: Dating Is Like An 'American Idol' Audition

Her song "Since You've Been Gone," is considered one of our generation's greatest break-up songs, but Kelly Clarkson is no closer to finding Mr. Right. In an interview with Access Hollywood in Los Angeles last week, the "American Idol" pop star compared dating to a grueling audition process.

"It's like an 'American Idol' audition. The worst ones are the most confident... And the same thing goes for my dating life. The worst guys are the most confident with me."

So who is the best guy for the single 29-year-old? Our bet is that it's not going to be the titular character of Clarkson's new single, "Mr. Know It All," which is featured on her upcoming fifth studio album "Stronger," dropping in late October.
