I'm sure all of us are outstanding in our own ways, thought for me and others it isn't singing or dancing. In some way we all probably get judged in the work we chose to put out there - whether it's John putting a suggestion box on this forum - asking for feedback on his work, or me putting my work out for peer critiques, or anyone that has to go through performance reviews on the job.
Everyone gets critiques, everyone gives them. The people that do best in life are probably those who can read the critiques and separate the "bashing" from the useful suggestions. Someone who can't handle crits shouldn't be in the arts, although I'm not sure what field they would be successful in.
