If Carly Rose indeed has signed a contract with Cowell's company, she will be joining fellow “X Factor” contestants Tate Stevens, Fifth Harmony and Emblem3, who all have signed with different record labels via Syco Music.
As for which record label would be ideal for the teen singing sensation, Epic Records could be a good fit because that’s also the home of girl group Fifth Harmony as well as popular artists like Avril Lavigne, Sade and Fiona Apple.
