Carrie Underwood, ‘X Factor’ Judge?
Could Carrie Underwood be following in the footsteps of Blake Shelton and Keith Urban by heading to a reality TV talent show? Perhaps! The country music superstar, who got her start by winning Season 4 of "American Idol" in 2005, hints she might consider a role reversal. The Oklahoma native reveals that she wouldn't be opposed to being a judge on another talent show, "X Factor," which was created by former "Idol" judge Simon Cowell.
"I'd never say never," she divulges to Glamour magazine (quote via PressParty.com). "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 songstress is singing a different tune from a year ago, when she said she'd be hesitant to be the one calling the shots. "I don't think I could do that," she told Digital Spy when asked if she'd ever consider being an "X Factor" judge. "Judging -- that would be a really tough job to have because there would be instances where you would have to tell somebody that their dream shouldn't be their dream and that would be really hard."
For now, the 29-year-old is focusing on her Blown Away tour, while also eying a few musical collaborations. "I love Jessie J, she's fearless," Carrie gushes. "Coldplay. Adele, of course. I'm up for anything."
Carrie's Blown Away tour, which includes Hunter Hayes as her opening act, plays in California and New Mexico this week, before she heads overseas for a series of shows in Ireland and Great Britain. See a list of her upcoming concerts here.
