Carrie Underwood could certainly relate.
That's why she recently told Glamour magazine she'd be open to being a judge on television talent show the "X Factor."
The "American Idol" winner knows what it's like to put all you've got out there then have to wait for a panel of people you've never met to decide your fate.
She said it would be difficult to let down hopeful singers, though: "I'd never say never. I think I could do things in a very constructive way. But those initial auditions, where you have to say no or tell someone to stop? I don't know if I could do that."
The Checotah native has won six Grammy awards and scored 12 No. 1 singles on U.S. Billboard charts since her 2005 debut on "American Idol."
