Carly Rose Soneclar: Fair or Unfair?

5 2504


After being wowed by last night’s performance of 13 year old Carly Rose Sonceclar, I did some research on the prodigy and learned that she has had a few gigs in showbiz already!

The songtress is Broadway actress and has appeared in productions such as Chloe in Wonderland, The Night of the Hunter and Parsley in The Big Bank. In addition to being a Broadway performer, Carly Rose Soneclar has performed at Madison Square Garden, Dodger Stadium and at the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament.

Carly Rose has also appeared in two motion pictures: The Nanny Diaries and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. With so much talent and experience at a young age, a blind man can see the youngster is destined for greatness.

It only makes sense that a platform like X Factor would make way for the next teen Idol, but is it unfair for the other ameatur performers?

    FAIR! hehe. I mean, I hear ya… but without people like her, the show would be “blah”. Honestly, she probably would’ve made it in the industry without X-Factor… BUT – and it’s a big BUT, she might not have. You just never know. It takes luck, timing, etc. I think she deserves the chance as much as the amateurs, and, in terms of performing in a “rock-star” or “teen-idol” way, she is technically amateur. When on Broadway or on TV, she is playing a character. Now she has to WOW us as “Carly Rose” 😉

      I totally agree with you. it’s interesting to see how these shows have adapted to allowing older contestants as well as semi pros like Carley Rose have a shot at it.

    There are many performers who come on to these shows who have been on stage in front of an audience at one time or another, some have even had a recording made but not the big name recordings they would ever get from being on this show… one could never make it on this show if they did not have some kind of experience.. if she was a big name she wouldn’t need this show or have the time for it… Some people are jealous because their favorite artist is being beat by her… this is a competition and the best artist should win by performance not because someone voted 50x and all their friends did the same the same… its not a popularity contest its a singing competition… and she is by far the best singer in this competition.

    She had little parts in these productions, she was not the star. Simon opened the competition to people who already was preforming professionally. Emblem 3 did shows at clubs. I don’t think you could call her a professional
