    Carrie Underwood, Lopez Join Lady Gaga on Forbes' Top Earning Women in 2013 List

    Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Lopez have made Forbes' Top Earning Women in 2013 list.
    Joining leaders Madonna ($125 million) and Lady Gaga ($80 million), who made number one and number two on the coveted list, Underwood is the only "American Idol" winner to reach the tally.
    "Carrie Underwood, the only former contestant, ranks ninth with $31 million. She's come a long way since winning the show in 2005. Her latest album, "Blown Away," went platinum and she played over 100 shows in our scoring period," reports Forbes.
    Also connected to "American Idol," Jennifer Lopez made the list, coming in at no.5. Post American Idol and prior to the new season of 'Idol,' Lopez raked in $45 million.
    Beyonce ($53 million), Mariah Carey ($29 million) and Nicki Minaj ($29 million) also made the top ten this year.

    They are undoubtedly estimates compiled from public data but they are probably reasonably close. Forbes actually publishes their methodology. They know what the artists made in ticket and record sales and they use a flat percentage to estimate the artist's take of that. They use a flat percentage to estimate what they pay in management fees etc. They probably know what their endorsement deals are so they can factor that in as well. So, my take on it is they are probably in the ballpark but not terribly accurate. They only way they would really know exactly what anybody made is to look at their tax returns and Carrie undoubtedly does not make those public.

    TSOM would have been a likely "one time" paycheck.
    And I would venture to say it is almost impossible for them to accurately determine what that would have been.

    TSOM cost approximately $9M, my guess is that of that Carrie probably received about $1M for that performance, maybe higher. I am actually surprised they are able to pull that off for $9M.

    In that interview with the President of NBC, he said that the proceeds from the DVD and album would be shared with Carrie.

    I don't think that TSOM was part of the calculation for Carrie as they said that approx 100 tour shows were included in the estimates so that means it's not a calendar year.

    I wonder if they're using worldwide box office in their calculations?
