Even without "American Idol," Carrie Underwood imagines she might have some sort of music career.

 But at yesterday's Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony for the show's creator, Underwood told the crowd on Hollywood Boulevard, quote, "I know that I would not be anywhere near where I am today" if it weren't for Simon Fuller.

Underwood says "Fuller is a genius and a visionary. He has forever changed the face of the entertainment world and, along the way, he even made some dreams come true for a lot of people.

Myself included, obviously." Also at Simon Fuller's star ceremony: Ryan Seacrest, Kris Allen, David Cook and the entire Top-11 from this season of "Idol."
