Carly Rose Sonenclar makes top 10 on 'X Factor'
Carly Rose Sonenclar of Mamaroneck is now in the top 10 of "X Factor" after being voted into the next round by viewers. The 13-year-old was the third contestant announced as safe by hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian Odom, which came as no surprise after she brought down the house with her performance of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" Wednesday night. Later in the episode, Lopez announced that Carly Rose actually had the second-most votes of any contestant. Country crooner Tate Stevens came out on top again.
Carly Rose advanced along with the entire Britney Spears teen team, which features Arin Ray, Beatrice Miller and Diamond White. Lyric145 was not so lucky -- the trio were the first of two acts cut in the episode. After singing off against her young adult teammate Paige Thomas, Jennel Garcia was the second contestant cut.
"X Factor" returns next week with episodes on both Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. Will the teen phenom continue advancing? We think yes. Vote for how far you think she'll make it. And if you missed Wednesday's episode, watch Carly Rose performing "My Heart Will Go On" below.
