LeAnn Rimes: I Was NOT DRUNK on X Factor!

by at . Comments

LeAnn Rimes swears she was not drunk on The X Factor last night, despite a head-scratching performance and a lot of speculation regarding it.

The 30-year-old strongly denies earlier celebrity gossip reports that she was impaired during her duet with finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar on Wednesday.

The singer was "in no way impaired," and any awkwardness was from "trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song."

LeAnn, through her lawyer Larry Stein, said Carly was nervous and had difficulty with some of the notes, and she was doing her best to help her through it.

Her performance seemed over-the-top to many, almost as if LeAnn were trying to upstage Carly, but her camp says people are reading too much into it.

Stein says that "LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform," but adds that it was only "because she was on stage with a young girl."

LeAnn does not understand the speculation, but Stein theorizes, "There have been a lot of untrue things said by others and it feeds into this sort of thing."

Talking to YOU, Brandi Glanville!

I LOVE LeAnn. The problem seemed that the entire performance was "off." The kid wasn't that good, LeAnn slipped at the beginning and seemed unsteady. Did you notice the look on Britney's face, and, her comment afterward? It was an embarrassing performance. My personal opinion is that mediocrity is being rewarded, these days. LeAnn is not mediocre...she really has talent. It is pretty clear that she is going through something, of late. I wish her well.

I don't think LeAnn seemed drug, except she had weird eyes. Although that is suspicious, the way she acted really didn't seem sloppy. It seems plausible she was trying to make the kid feel more comfortable. It was kind of weird, but whatever.

Carly sounded better than Leann. Too, Leann was off the damn count the entire time, not to mention screeching the lyrics, if I didn't know the words I wouldn't have been able to tell what it was. Every performance I've heard of Leann sounds just like that, screeching. Especially the stuff on that E interview she did. I couldn't understand a gd word she was singing.

*drunk (I tried to fix it but hit send!) Well, saying "drug" instead wasn't that far off.
