X Factor’s Carly Rose Sonenclar: Her Struggle To Be Accepted

X Factor’s Carly Rose Sonenclar: Her Struggle To Be Accepted

Carly Rose Sonenclar, the potential winner of X-Factor USA, almost didn’t make it this far in the competition. Back when the pre-casting for the show began, Carly went to a “mall to a kiosk to audition”. This is usually the easiest and most comfortable way for casting directors on reality television shows to find the next big star. Aside from the preliminary auditions at the audition venue itself – most reality television talent competitions have two preliminary phases of auditioning in order for casting agents to make the correct choice – a kiosk or an “instant audition” at a public venue such as a mall usually draws massive crowds. The pool of talent is wider and the casting directors are able to take their time to make a decision.

When Carly arrived at the kiosk to audition, another act luckily dropped out at the last minute and gave her the opportunity to try out for the show. Carly was successful and was given a call-back to the live auditions in Providence. However, the casting directors informed her that even if she made the long trip to the X-Factor live auditions, there was a strong chance that she wouldn’t have made it to the judges. As fate would have it, Carly arrived at Providence and the casting directors at the live event chose her to perform before the judges – a moment that not only changed her life, but also changed ours. It was serendipitous. Carly also recently admitted that she tried out for America’s Got Talent, but she didn’t even make it past the preliminary judging.

Current trends on the internet and social media sites indicate that Carly Rose Sonenclar, the vocal prodigy, will in all probability win the entire competition and walk away as one of the youngest winners in the history of the show.

    I love Carly Rose Sonenclar!! America’s Got Talent is crap for her. I am glad, as FATE would have it, she made it to this season of Xfactor. I started watching for Britney (yawn) and stayed tuning in for Sonenclar.

      I agree, Valerie. I watched AGT this year looking for another prodigy like Jackie Evancho and some dog and pony show won it — minus the pony. I think this is a better arena for Carly anyways.I think she should win also, and is the only reason I’m watching the X-Factor-as with many others. I’m not sure how the results are going to unfold but one thing I believe to be sure is that Carly will make much more then 5 Million in the long run. I believe if Tate wins he will get buried by the younger more talented and better looking artists in the Country genre. Fifth Harmony will grab a bunch of sympathy underdog votes but I’m afraid will probably only amount to a flash in the pan as most boy/girl groups are. Carly is serious about making music and entertaining — she’s in this for the long haul.

    Carly has been the best act for this entire season of XFactorUSA 2012 and she has been used by the producers like nobody else. She is the best and should win but you never know the plan…and yes it would be shameful if she did not win.

    I’m voting for Carly. She is such an amazing singer. Tate sounds like a typical country singer. I could turn the radio on and hear a thousand “hims”. Carly is unique, versatile, and lovable. She is just perfect. The whole package. Tate sings country and I don’t hear anything special in his voice. Country fans will vote for him BC he’s country and he gets the lame sympathy vote … “I dedicate all these songs to my wife. I don’t want her to ever work. (I mean, what woman wants to work, right?) ugh… Carly better win. That girl has worked hard and I think she’s worth a $5 million contract. :)

    I really want Carly to win though there’s an infamous past with Xfactor winners (UK AND US) who don’t get managed properly by simon’s label and get horrible albums. Hopefully if Carly wins that won’t happen. But, I think the odds are against her. 1) Tate is the only country guy now ( I think he’s okay) and is getting the country votes and also, the sympathy votes (my poor wife and kids, no job, bla bla). 2) Some of her votes will go to Fifth harmony. But, I think even if she doesn’t win, eventually she’ll be remembered in history the most for what I think she will show the world with her albums and will be the most successful for sureee.
