Carrie Underwood Says No to The X Factor


Carrie Underwood

When Carrie Underwood walked the red carpet at the ACM Awards she talked to Extra about marriage and the possibility of her joining Simon Cowell’s The X Factor as a judge.  About her marriage to Mike Fisher, which is about 19 months old, Carrie says the best part is “I have my best friend around me all the time.”  She also thinks maybe she’s got it easy because she says, “Everybody’s like, ‘The first year is the hardest’ – and I’m like, ‘That’s it? That was the hardest? Come on, you can do better than that!’ It’s great; he’s wonderful.”


Many names have been rumored to be up for consideration to fill the vacant seats at the judge’s table on Simon Cowell’s The X Factor, including Mariah Carey and LeAnn Rimes, but Carrie says it’s not likely she would ever join that show, even though she won her season of American Idol when Simon Cowell was still on the show.  Carrie says, “I think it’s great that he has ‘The X Factor‘ show, and I love seeing all of these shows giving nobodies a big opportunity.  But I’m an ‘Idol’ girl all the way. That’s the one that I love and watch.  I can’t see myself being a part of any another show like that.”
