One of the youngest and most talented singers / contestants on this season of X Factor USA, the second of the show since it’s been imported from the UK, is Carly Rose Sonenclar. Above is her latest live performance, of just a few hours ago.Carly Rose is only 13 but you could never tell it by her huge voice.
For last night’s show, she picked Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain,” which, you will agree, is a rather difficult song for any age, not just hers.
Still, she delivered near-perfection and so much feeling with it that she burst into tears at the end, spent on much emotion.
All four judges, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and mentor Britney Spears, were impressed, branding her “a star in the making.” They’re absolutely right.
