Contestant: Carly Rose Sonenclar
Song Selection: Elton John’s “Your Song”
Mentor: Britney Spears
“Your Song” was personally chosen by Carly as her contestant’s song choice. This was a beautiful performance in spots. I got chills multiple times. That’s the first time that is happening for me. And I have heard this song performed a lot on these shows.
Below this article, you will see the official YouTube video of Carly Rose Sonenclar’s Top 4 semifinal performance of this song when it is available for embedding. It generally takes a few hours for the show to upload them. This is from the December 12, 2012 performance episode.

YouTube Statistics, Trends And Ratings For Carly:
As usual, this singer has dominated everyone in the Top 6 in YouTube statistics. Her trend is a simple one: she wins every single week. Carly typically gets more than double the 2nd place contestant in online viewers. This week, her 3.7 million is well more than double Fifth Harmony’s 1.45 million. And it is about triple what 3rd place Emblem3 has done and about 7 times the number of views Tate has gotten.
Despite that, the show says that Tate got more public votes last week. This could have been because he sang last. But it’s clear that Tate is strong competition for those votes. If this little dynamo can’t win X Factor, then maybe it’s just not meant to be for a 13-year-old to win.
Carly’s Top 6 number of “If I Were a Boy” has good YouTube user ratings of about 19,200 Likes and 700 Dislikes. Her “As Long As You Love Me” has about 34,300 Likes and 900 Dislikes.
Here is a full list of the final 4 contestants in X Factor 2 plus the total number of YouTube views they had accumulated last week (from two separate performances). The contestants are ranked here based on YouTube views only. The vote totals last week saw Tate in first and Carly in second. Emblem3 was 3rd, and Fifth Harmony was either 4th or 5th and got through to the Top 4 semifinals on a judges’ save.
