Broadway vet Carly Rose Sonenclar has been astounding TV audiences week after week with her soulful renditions of “Feeling Good,” “Something's Got a Hold On Me,” “My Heart Will Go On” and more on TV’s The X Factor. On the December 5 episode of the hit competition show, Sonenclar stunned judges Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid with her powerhouse performance of Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy,” but Demi Lovato was not impressed. After Lovato called the young starlet’s song choices too predictable, Cowell came to the rescue, advising Sonenclar “not to listen to a single word” Lovato says. Way to have her back, Simon!
