“I do feel this show was created for people like me, for people like Noah who didn’t know to dream that big but knew that they wanted to do something,” Carrie Underwood said during her interview, per People. “So it’s a beautiful thing, I mean I think back and that’s a decision that changed my entire life — I have no idea where I’d be. And to see contestants get every opportunity they’ve ever wanted is just magical.”
