Carly Rose Sonenclar Family Blames LeAnn Rimes for X Factor Loss [Updated]

by at . Comments

Tate Stevens has won Season 2 of The X Factor.

But did LeAnn Rimes actually swing the voting in the direction of this aspiring country music star?

Yes, according to the family of runner-up Carly Rose Sonenclar, following that 13-year old's duet of "How Do I Live" on Wednesday's final performance show. Watch it here:

Talk of LeAnn Rimes drunk on stage circulated after the wobbly rendition, with the troubled singer's rep initially blaming Sonenclar for his client's woes, telling TMZ Rimes was trying to help a "nervous" Carly Rose.

Is that really what the above performance looks like to anyone else?

Rimes went on to claim she never uttered a negative word about Sonenclar, but TMZ is standing by the rep's quote.

Insiders say that Sonenclar's mother and other relatives are simply aghast that Rimes would direct any blame at all toward Carly Rose, especially considering how she clearly out-sang LeAnn on-air.

UPDATE: Carly's father has left us a voicemail and said, emphatically, that no one in the family blames Rimes for the show's outcome.

What do you think? Should Rimes take any of the blame? And did Stevens deserve to win The X Factor?

HER PARENTS DO THINK SHE IS BETTER THAN ANY OF THE PERFORMERS ON THE SHOW.CARLY LOST BECAUSE SHE LOST IT IS NO ONES FAULT.BECAUSE IS A GOOD SEASONED PERFORMER .

I finally figured out why Carly was teamed up with Rimes. Spears was her mentor, so spears picked one of her drug buddies, Rimes, to sing with carley. Simon should have stepped in to prevent Spears from getting one of her drug buddies to be on the xfactor show,.

Carly rose should have won hands down she was an amazing singer and was cute. Tate Stevens wasn't even close to as good as Carly. Why did they even let leAnne Rimes on stage drunk with a 13 year old girl

Carly was always on top of her gain, shes was always upping from one performance after another. Tate and Fifth Harmony was cracking in voices and the judges made comments that they could have done better. I sure wished carly would have won because I would buy her music and so would my kids, we all love her and hope that someone cuts her a recording contract because that gal can sing!!!

Carly should've won hands down.! She's got sum pipes..she proved herself over n over by singing hard to sing songs by great vocal artist.. And yes I agree with most voters on here that Tate Stevens won with pity votes.. He used the sob story on every episode.. Not to mention the great husband votes! Always talking about his wife.. I thought this was a competition of who can sing better..! I would heaved hoped x-factor or Carly's coach would have had celion dion or bruno mars for Carly's celebrity singer.. Not a drunk country singer..

Tate Stevens just kept reminding them of his "No Turn Back Story" and just got sympathy votes. And shame on LeAnn to but ANY blame on teem prodigy Carly Rose. She was AMAZING. LeAnn broke her streak of flawless preformances.
