It was no surprise when it came down to Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens tonight on the X Factor live finale. The 13-year-old phenom was neck and neck with blue collar family man Tate all throughout the live shows. Sadly for this little diva, she did not take home the prize, coming in second place.

Despite not winning the $5 million recording contract, we’re pretty sure Carly Rose has a long future in music, whether it’s back on the Broadway stage or as a pop artist. Just look at darling Rachel Crow, who now has her own Nickelodeon show!
