X-Factor Picks A Winner And It Comes With Controversey

X-Factor Picks A Winner And It Comes With Controversey


Airdate: 12/21/2012

A controversial finish to X-Factor's season finale as a grown man faced off with a 13-year-old girl.
 
37-year-old country singer Tate Stevens won and walked away with a $5 million recording contract.

However, there was a devastated look on the face of runner up Carly Rose. With tears in her eyes, she even had to be comforted by mentor Britney Spears.

Now, the youngster’s parents are fighting mad, reportedly blaming LeAnn Rimes for her loss by "throwing their daughter under the bus" after "trashing her performance."

The controversy stems from Carly Rose's shaky duet with LeAnn Rimes on Wednesday night.

People called LeAnn’s performance "uneven." Some wondered if she was "out of it.”

Rimes defended herself and said, "I was trying to help this 13 year old girl who was having some trouble with the song."

Rimes later denied she said that and tweeted "It was an amazing opportunity to share this experience with Carly.”
