A controversial finish to X-Factor's season finale as a grown man faced off with a 13-year-old girl.
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.
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.”
