Three hours of The X Factor Season 2 are in the books.

What did everyone think? Are you shocked that Britney Spears seems coherent so far? Impressed by Demi Lovato's heart and attitude? Sick of Simon Cowell's t-shirts?

Carly Rose Sonenclar treated X Factor viewers to a case of shock and AWWWW last night.

This 13-year old - the second act of that age to blow attendees away, following the premiere performance of Reed Deming - may have looked sweet and innocent prior to belting out her first note, but she proceeded to simply own the stage during a rendition of "Feeling Good."

Jason Brock talked a very good game on The X Factor last night, nervously chatting up the judges for a long time before actually singing a note.

The self-described "nerd herder" was easy to mock as a result... until he got going on "New York State of Mind" and proved he croons and even better game than he talks.

The X Factor tracked down the next Rihanna AND the next Justin Bieber last night. Amazing, we know!

Perhaps a bit hyperbolic on its opening night of Season 2, the Fox competition introduced the world first to Paige Thomas - who L.A. Reid compared to the "We Found Love" superstar - and then to Reed Deming, a 13-year old with shaggy hair who, of course, reminded the panel of another young sensation.
