WATCH: Carly Rose Sonenclar Deserves X Factor Top Spot, Says Simon Cowell


By Shari Weiss



It was an outstanding night for the youngest “X Factor” contestants on Wednesday’s show.

Shortly after Diamond White blew away the judges and earned a standing ovation, fellow 13-year-old Carly Rose Sonenclar did the same.

And this time, Simon Cowell was on his feet, too.

“I’ve heard that song a lot of times. That was one of the best versions of it I’ve ever heard,” he told Sonenclar.

The music mogul also went back on his previous comment to an also-stellar Vino Alan that he’d be ranked number one on the results show.

“I think I’ve changed my mind,” Cowell said. “I think you’ve blown this competition way open.”

L.A. Reid called Sonenclar “an absolute force of nature,” and Demi Lovato once again marveled at the singer’s young age.

“I need to see like a school ID or something because I really, honestly don’t believe you when you say you’re 13,” she said.

Lovato continued, “You’re just amazing and you’re going to be around in this music industry for the rest of your life.”

Added Sonenclar’s mentor, Britney Spears, “I agree with everyone. I will never get over the fact that you’re 13. It’s unreal.”
