If you, like us, were sobbing and crying worried about how the youngest X Factor Season 2 contestants are faring being away from their friends and families, fear not. Speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment on November 11, 2012, Carly Rose Sonenclar says she’s found two new BFFs in Beatrice Miller and Diamond White. Here’s what Carly had to say about her coming diva performance and how she’s handling the pressure (spoiler alert: she gets by with a little help from her friends).

How did you feel when you first found out all the contestants were going to be ranked?
I didn’t really mind. And it wasn’t like oh I know I’m going to be the best so I don’t care, it wasn’t like that, it was just like there’s nothing I can do about it so why get upset? That’s kind of what was going through my head. I thought I had a great performance so I was trying not to let it affect me.

You placed second only to Tate, how did you feel about that?
I was very happy! I wasn’t like darn it I should have had first, I wasn’t thinking that. I was just like out of twelve people to get second place that’s pretty awesome. Tate is so great and he ahs the whole country thing going for him so to get second against that I feel great about myself. Yeah I was really happy.

Between you and Beatrice how are you handling the pressure?
Well I mean and Diamond, she’s also 13. We’re kind of like the Three Musketeers so we’re kind of handling it together I guess. Because we’re all the same age so we kind of all are in the same boat. We’re getting through together.

What can we expect from your song choice this week?
My song choice this week is really, it’s definitely a big, big song. You can expect a lot of big notes I guess.

If you could duet with one other contestant on the X-Factor who would it be and why?
I think it would be cool with like Emblem3 because I love their style and Vino because I love his voice and Lyric 145 because you know in the rap songs when they sample in a singer? Yeah like that!
