Carly Rose Sonenclar Takes Second Place On The X Factor USA Season 2 Finale

Carly Rose Sonenclar WINS The X Factor USA Season 2

Carly Rose Sonenclar took SECOND place on the second season of  The X Factor USA.  If you missed the results show and want to see who WON the X Factor Season 2, we recapped it here for you!

On last night’s episode, the top 3 finalists had not one, but three, songs to perform in front of our judges, Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears and LA Reid. It wasn’t spectacular, nor was it surprising; instead, the three remaining acts stayed within the boundaries of their niche and continued to carve out their future in the industry.

On last night’s show Carly Rose Sonenclar – Mentored by Britney Spears sang Feeling Good & How Do I Live Without You & Hallelujah – There’s no doubt in our minds (especially after Hallelujah) that Carly will win this competition. All three songs worked well with what Carly has been able to establish – a brand of professionalism and child-prodigy vocals. She has done enough to win the competition and out of all three, she is most deserving of the title. If Carly does not win X-Factor, it will be the biggest upset in reality television history. She is a true superstar and has showed us every week why she deserves the number one position on one of the greatest reality TV shows in the world. Tonight, Carly will be the happiest kid on the planet, because not only will she be $5 million richer, she’ll also be one of the biggest music stars on the planet.

FINAL WORDS – It has been a pleasure to watch Carly every week, as for the first time in recent years, there was a true star on that stage. She broke boundaries, blasted away the competition, and held her own against the other acts with the biggest songs in the music industry. Carly isn’t just a star; she’s a supernova.

What do you think, should Carly Rose Sonenclar have won The X Factor USA, Season 2? Let us know in the comments below.

    I guess taking second place was the best for Carly, so she can have more freedom in future talent representation and recording contracts (don’t forget Carly has already been represented, as this second season didn’t force acts to break their previous contracts). For Tate, winning the XFactor will be the highlight of his career.

    For Carly, this is just the start for even more amazing things, she is a phenom with an extraordinary vocal talent like only a handful of people who has participated in realities :)

    Carly should have won – she was consistently better than anyone including Tate Stevens and was the best on Wednesday.
    She will probably end up better by coming in second in this case. I suspect Simon will sign her to a contract immediately and she’ll be a huge star.

    I only watched X-Factor to see Carly Rose sing. She was the winner and everyone knows that it was a great injustice that she came out second. I will never watch that show again. I will be looking for her first album though…

      agreed Mac when i first heard her me and my daughter were amazed. i knew the competition was between those two..none of the other acts could compare( the season should have been called x-factor Carly and Tate:) should she have won…yes..why she didn’t simple his story was more lovable to the reality fanboys and thats it IMO either way they both were fantastic and im with you mac looking foward to her first album as long as its not bubble gum pop and more soulful pop like Celin Deion
