The five-time Grammy winner, who released her first UK albumChris Martin and Co to sing to her UK audience, Underwood revealed toJessie J. I think she’s like super talented. She's really popular in the US right now, so I hear quite a bit of her.
"I knowCheryl Cole is really big here and I’ve heard a little bit of her in the States and she obviously very gorgeous."
When probed over whether she believes Chezza can be a hit in America, Carrie stated: "I don’t know why not. Like I said, she’s not as big right now as she is here but I’ve heard a little bit of her on the radio."
Speaking of what she makes of the success of UK artists such as One DirectionandAdelein the US, the Good Girl singer claimed: "One Direction are basically taking over right now, you see them in every magazine, every day."There’s definitely a lot of people to be interested in right now. I think people were really ready for Adele, I think her talent speaks for itself and I think people really appreciate that she’s a vocalist and an artist.
"It’s not about all the hoopla surrounding her and it’s not about like tabloid stuff. It’s not about her scantily-clad dancing in a video, it’s talent and I think people really appreciate that."
Speaking of whether she would like to sing with the Someone Like You star, Underwood added: "I think that would be incredible. She would make me look bad though, so maybe not! She’s really amazing."
