Carrie Underwood: I'm not 'tough' enough to judge 'X Factor'
In an interview with Digital Spy, Underwood explains, "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...I don't think I could do that."
Underwood has been among the most successful contestants to emerge from any of the televised singing competitions. Since winning "American Idol" in 2005, she's put out three albums that have sold more than 12 million copies. Her fourth album is scheduled for a May 1 release.
"The X Factor" remains on the hunt for two judges to replace the fired Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
