On last night’s episode of The X Factor, we saw a duet between country music icon, LeAnn Rimes, and finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar but the performance was far from spot on. In fact, it was borderline atrocious. What in the world went wrong?
It was obvious from the get go that something was definitely not quite right with LeAnn Rimes as she joined X Factor finalist, Carly Rose Sonenclar onstage for a duet of “How Do I.” Rimes’ staggering and disheveled appearance left many wondering if she was under the influence of something.
Rolling Stones said, “Rimes’ greasy-haired, skin and bones dumpster-diver look was a total distraction. We couldn’t take our eyes off her. She’s only 30 – what in the h*ll happened to her? However, even if we had covered our eyes, the song was still a disaster. Their voices didn’t jell, and LeAnn’s raspy vocals just seemed to drag Carly’s usually flawless sound down in the muck.”
But according to TMZ, Rimes said she was fine; she simply didn’t want to upstage the young girl. “I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having trouble with the song.” Really? Did it look like Carly Rose was the one having trouble with the song?
Rimes’ attorney added, “LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform, because she was on stage with a young girl.”
Why would her attorney even feel the need to comment? No one is suing her for a bad performance… but maybe someone should.
What did you think of Rimes and Sonenclar’s duet? Did you love it? Or hate it? If Carly Rose doesn’t win, do you think Rimes is partly to blame? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it! Post a comment below and tell us all about it.
