Britney on Carly Rose: 'She reminds me a lot of me'
Pop diva believes her 'X Factor' contestant Sonenclar is destined for stardom
Britney Spears has grown close to her "X Factor" contestant Carly Rose Sonenclar, because she reminds her a lot of herself as a young artist. The pop diva's last singer standing in the competition is a 13-year-old powerhouse, who has continued to win over the judges and the viewers week after week.
And now that Sonenclar is one of the clear front-runners, Spears believes the timid yet strong teen is destined to be a star -- just like her. Spears tells Zap2it, "The way Carly Rose is kind of shy and then she gets on stage ... and it's an insane voice. When I was younger, she reminds me a lot of me."
She also insists that, in addition to her spectacular voice, Sonenclar has what the show is all about: the X factor. Spears adds, "Her personality ... She's so cool. Like Simon (Cowell) said about her the other night, she has this demeanor. She really gets it. She understands the business and that's what you also need on top of being talented. I think that's her best quality." Sonenclar faces off again the rest of the top four acts on Wednesday's semifinals.
"The X Factor" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
HaHa, people are so laughably uniformed. Do a youtube search for Britney Star Search to see her singing when she was younger. Most of her songs have been recorded in a voice that is not her natural register i.e. the "baby voice" which is why it's next to impossible for her to sing them live, especially when moving around which she is most of the time.
I think that Britney has done a wonderful job mentoring carly. I dont understand why people would put her down, she was young when she started, her problem was her parents didnt try to keep her grounded and let her lose sight of herself, I think she has grown alot in the past couple years and deserves to be thought of a human being that made mistakes like we all have. , I hope carly wins it all
Please Britney! She is 100x's better than you were when you were her age, and even at your age now! You should never compare yourself to someone as talented as Carly! You don't have "ANY" versatility, and she has a monumental amount!
Hope the Carly rose wins but that she does not turn out to be the trash that Brittany has turned out to be.
You all know she meant when she was younger right? Britney was talented when she was little and had the drive for stardom (star search,and mmc).
Shes Awesome. This show really needs some new hosts. Khloe killed the show for me.
maybe cuz u envy her cuz she is better. but she wont win - she is too good and the best dont
win this "contests".
