MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Mamaroneck teen-ager Carly Rose Sonenclar, after two straight weeks at No. 2 in viewer votes, is performing Wednesday night on "X Factor" as part of the Top 10.
"X Factor" starts at 8 p.m. on Fox and this week's timely theme is thanks, gratitude, and inspiration. Sonenclar teased her performance to 'X Factor' on Monday. "You can expect another big song, but it will be happy," she said.
Sonenclar was a close second in viewer votes after her performance last week of "My Heart Will Go On" from the movie "Titanic." She's previously been called "a star in the making" by "X Factor" judge Simon Cowell.
On Tuesday night, Sonenclar asked her Twitter followers what they were most thankful for. A few minutes later, the hash tag "TYCarlysAngels" was trending worldwide, an abbreviation for “Thank you, Carly’s Angels," as Sonenclar refers to her Twitter followers and fans.
Sonenclar also told "X Factor" which celebrities she’d have over for Thanksgiving. "It would probably be The Beatles because they’re really amazing and they're all legends," she said. Other musical influences include Foster the People, The Black Keys, Amy Winehouse and Etta James.
After Wednesday's performance, fans can vote fours ways: through the "Xtra Factor" application on Verizon Android devices, calling Sonenclar's "X Factor" number toll-free, text messaging through Verizon Wireless phones or online at TheXFactorUSA.com. Fans with Facebook accounts can also vote at Facebook.com/TheXFactorUSA.
"X Factor" will return at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night with the results of the audience votes.
