This is Taylor Swift's Grammy 2016 acceptance speech. I didn't understand the meaning of the words, undercut and sidetrack, that she said. Could you tell me the meaning of "undercut" and “sidetrack”? Thank you.

"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to the young woman out there, there are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going, you will look around and you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
