Taking center stage - no matter if it's in front of dozens of people or thousands - takes courage. When you take center stage for an audition, say for a wildly popular televised talent show, you're subject to criticism from hoards of people who know nothing about you. They may boo and jeer no matter the nature of the performance. But for someone who is willing to put themselves out there, that's just part of the business.

In a YouTube clip from what appears to be a dance or talent show of some sort, a heavyset woman takes the stage. Perhaps not expecting her to impress, the audience seems to laugh at her - but not for long. When the music kicks in and the woman starts to move, cheers and applause ripple across the audience. When her brief audition is over, one of the judges even comes on stage to embrace her.
