Carrie Underwood tops Adam Lambert as best paid ‘Idol’

Underwood easily beat the competition on the ‘Forbes’ list, states UsMagazine.com. Underwood reportedly made about $20 million while Adam Lambert tied with Chris Daughtry for second by bringing in $6 million.

Original winner Kelly Clarkson came in fifth with $2.5 million.
