Kelly Clarkson won the first American Idol title in 2002, but she isn't going over well with the producers – and at least one of the judges – right now.

The FOX show, which kicked off its fifth season on Tuesday, is having trouble reaching a financial agreement with Clarkson to allow contestants to sing her songs, according to its producers.

"We get requests (for Kelly's songs) all the time and we turn things down," a rep for Clarkson's label tells PEOPLE. "It’s not just an Idol thing."

But tart-tongued judge Simon Cowell disagrees. "It sounds to me that someone is being difficult and I don't like that."

Clarkson is up for two Grammy awards next month. Still, "No matter how talented Kelly Clarkson is, she would not be in the position she's in now without winning this show," says Cowell. "It's a shame."

Adds Cowell, "If she refuses to give songs to be used on the show, it's like saying to every person who voted for you, 'you know what? Thank you. I'm not interested in you anymore.'"

Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe says the show still hopes to come to terms with Clarkson's reps. And Clarkson's manager Jeff Rabhan says she would never snub the show that launched her career.

"We are negotiating for a fair-market value," says Rabhan. "Nobody is more proud of where she comes from than Kelly Clarkson."

Don't get me wrong. There is also an Argentine equivalent which I hate.

You know who I really liked? That Kurt Nilsen guy who won the "World Idol" with his rousing rendition of "Beautiful Day." I bought his album and actually quite liked it.

Interesting about Kelly - someone last night sang a bit of Since You've Been Gone (greatest pop song EVAH!!) ... you'd think if they didn't have the rights to it, it wouldn't have gotten any air time.

I think there is a rocker dude tonite - the one they were showing in the previews last night, bald-ish guy and wasn't he in a band?

I wonder how many more cities some of the same contestants will show up in, like the clueless 16-year old with more make-up caked on than than than...______________
oh I dunno - you fill in the blank, LOL. And her mother too - what a pair

And at least the young crooner guy was good. I never liked John Stewart (red-head crooner) from last season. He always bugged the crap out of me

No idea if they pay their own way to get to Hollywood or not. Remember last season (or 2 ago) where this black woman sold everything she had (wedding ring too) to get to the audition (she was married to a white man and they had a kid). You really felt for her, but in the end, she either didn't make it past Hollywood or didn't make it to Hollywood, I can't remember...

Oh, that John Stewart guy was HORRID. I was appalled he made it so far. That's what happens when people vote for someone just because you want to take him home and take care of him.

Gack.

remember the season before where they kept voting for the Hawaii girl - she was ok, but not as talented as some of the other African American women that year

That kid needs a combination of medical help to get more hormones and psychological help for his 'confusion'.

Zachary was definitely odd.

Too confused to function.
I don't see why people confuse me for a girl!

-Maybe because of the high pitched voice, the haircut, the girly clothes, the HIGH HEELS?

There are some weird ass folk out there.

Uh oh the twins that made it to Hollywood are in trouble. I am waiting for the report on the news. Apparently one of them is behind bars.
